Brief Answer:
You may take the antibiotics. Sub-centimetre nodes are not significant.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for writing back.

1. There is no harm in taking a five day course of antibiotics. However you should do that only under the supervision of your doctor.

2. Lymph nodes usually do not regress back to their non-palpable size. That is not a cause for concern. This is why lymph nodes less than a centimetre in greatest diameter are not considered significant.

I hope that I have answered your query. If you have any more questions I will be available to answer them.

Regards.
