Brief Answer:
You should get investigated.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
As per your description,it looks like Multiple lymph nodes are enlarged.

If abscess is confirmed and it is not relieved by Antibiotic and anti inflammatory tablets, then the Pus has to be drained by surgeon.
Regarding submandibular lymph nodes, I prefer Ultrasound of that areas and get a clue. FNAC (Fine needle aspiration cytology) has to be done for accurate diagnosis.
Please consult your doctor and proceed further.
Till then, continue with the Antibiotic.
Hope Diabetes is excluded in blood tests.
Nothing to worry.

Hope I answered your query.If you have any questions,I will clarify further.
Wish you good health
