Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The swollen lymph nodes are related to an infection.
So,I would suggest you to do a complete blood count and a physical examination to confirm the infection.
Treatment depends on the results of the examinations.
