I have three swollen and painful nodes around my groin area. Can online doctor help me?

Age 20 Female I have three swollen and painful nodes around my groin area and my upper thigh. two on the right side, and one on the left side that developed later. I went to urgent care, the doctor prescribed a antibiotic and a antiyeast medication even though they did a UA and my results came back without any infection, std etc. Today I went back in because I had gotten a sore on the outer part of my vagina. The doctor said it was an ingrown hair , I figured as much because I know I don t have an std, and have been tested. He also checked my nodes again, and told me he would prescribe medication for them. He prescribed doxycycline . I looked this up online after i got home and it is just another antibiotic. But i dont have an infection!! My nodes havent got better. this medicine is just making me feel tired and dizzy. I just want to know what the heck is wrong with me!? Has anyone else had enlarged lymph nodes in their groin area, without having an std or infection? I m scared to death this is something serious.

Thanks for query,
in 99 % cases lymphadenitis is due to some infection in near by area, either in the skin, or genital tract.
in fungal infection due to itching on the part causes treat fungal infection at the same time if it is there.
Have you got enlarge lymph nodes in any other areas of the body ? if it is there,it require further investigations.
ok and bye.

As you do not have lymphadenitis on any other site you do not worry.
As I told you that there were infection near by area and by this time cured due to various antibiotics.
But lymphadenitis remains there for long time so do not worry,forget it.
Last source to know the cause go for biopsy of the lymph node but I am sure it may not reveal much.
ok and bye.
