Welcome to HCM

He is 3 years old and is having cold and cough. He is on clarithromycine and cetrizine. Probably he is having acute upper respiratory infection. Enlargement of lymph glands of sub mental and sub mandibular region is common in such situations. There is no need to visit ER immediately but consult his pediatrician once he get stabilized.

Thanks for posting on HCM,

The cause of the lump will depend mostly on the characteristic of the lump. It could be a secondary effect of either of the medications you are taking (which I doubt given that it is only an isolated lump on his jaw) or infection (especially as he is already having a cold/cough).
Try giving it a few days to clear off on its own and if it does not, do consider seeing his pediatrician for proper evaluation.
