Lymph swelling of a 4.5 years old baby, what is the cure ?
Hello my 4 year 6 months son got swollen groin or lymph since from a week and his doctor gave antibiotic and ibugesic syrup and from 6 days he is taking but still swelling and pain is there please tell me what to do?
Most of the time the groin swelling is due to viral or bacterial infection. So give 2-4 weeks. Use antibiotics for 10 days. If after 2-4 weeks , the swelling persists and painful, then he may need Fine Needle Aspiration.
