Does caffeine cause soreness in lymph node of underarms and groin?

Good morning - I have been experiencing lymph node soreness in my underarms and groin area , I have been checked by a doctor and could not figure out where this is coming from . It has been coming and going for the last 2 months . I noticed more after alcohol use . I also drink way too much coffee which recently have realized this may be the issue as I feel good in the morning when I wake up then notice it tends to happen after caffeine use . I have switched to decaff recently to see if this helps . Sometimes I was drinking coffee from morning until afternoon . Could way too much caffeine be affecting my lymph nodes ?

Hello,

Lymph nodes can be related to a chronic infection. It is strange how caffeine influences in their dimensions. Anyway, I would recommend performing further tests to investigate for the possible causes:
- A thoracic and pelvic CT scan
- Complete blood count, PCR, ESR for inflammation

In the meantime, I would recommend avoiding shaving your underarms area and use a topical antibiotic ointment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
