I had trouble understanding one part of your writing, but it depends on what you mean by enlarged lymph nodes. Only lymph nodes with more than 15 mm diameter are considered enlarged. Even in that situation, when you are infected, it is a normal reaction of your body. If you have persistant lymph node enlargement, you should consult your physician
