    Suggest treatment for swollen lymph with tonsillitis

Hi! i am a 31 yr old female who has had tonsilitis since i was 1yrs old, in 2002 my doctor noticed i had a swelling in the back of my throat and i was later diagnosed with sinusitis, in 2009 i had a tonsilectomy done but i still suffer from a headache on the right side of my head, congestion, a swollen lymph node on that side which i feel when i swallow and severe neck pain. this problem comes and goes. please help me with an idea of what is causing this

Hello,

Your symptoms seem to be related to an upper respiratory tract infection. The swollen lymph nodes are usually related to an infection. I suggest doing a blood test for further evaluation.

Meanwhile, I suggest using anti-inflammatory medications such as Ibuprofen to relieve the swollen lymph nodes.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
