Couldn't find what you looking for?

TRY OUR SEARCH!

Since yesterday I have noticed a swelling underneath my chin, I looked on the internet and assumed it was a lymph node.
It's about 2 inches from side to side and is quite painful to touch.
And it makes me look like I got really fat overnight!!
Recently I've had some skin problems, could this be the cause of it?

Hi there,
You have to understand one thing about lymph nodes. They tend to get swollen when you have some sort of infection in your body. The thing that you have some sort of itchiness on your skin might indicate that lymph nodes got swollen because of this. Have you had any allergic reactions in paste several days? Have you been using any medication for your skin problem? Sometimes the swelling can be just a reaction to medication. These side effects are really not that rare in medication. You could try to apply warm compress to the lymph node but don’t press it too much because you can irritate it the lymph node even more.
All the best,
Danella
