    Will the enlarged lymph nodes on the neck be normal?

Two weeks ago my 18 year old son became very sick. It was finally determined he had mono. All his symptoms have disappeared except his lymph nodes in his neck are still enlarged. There is no longer any pain or discomfort, but they can clearly be felt beneath his skin. Will this symptom eventually disappear on it's own as the other symptoms have? If not, is there a natural remedy that would benefit?

It will generally take 2 to 3 weeks for the lymph nodes to disappear, sometimes even longer
If he does not have pain or they are not increasing in size then there is nothing to worry.
Take care
