Hi, I woke Suggest treatment for inflamed lymph node

Hi, I woke up two days ago with an inflamed lymph node on the left side of my groin & yesterday there was another. Today I woke up with a sore throat & the lymph node in my neck is enlarged (also on the left) & it started hurting when I urinate. What could be going on?

Hi,

Welcome to HCM

I am suspecting lymphadenitis of the inguinal lymph nodes. It is common usually in infections of the genitourinary tract.

I suggest you get yourself examined by a GP nearby you to rule out infection. You may have to take antibiotics to reduce the infection.

For now, you can take any over the counter painkillers for pain and swelling.

Maintain personal hygiene and keep the affected areas clean and dry.

Thanks
