How To Deal With Enlarged Lymph Nodes In Children?
I want to ask … My child is 6 years old. History of allergies and nosebleeds easily when tired or when a fever. Several times there was a history of tonsils as well. I just realized that the lymph nodes in the neck near the base of my child’s tongue that look bigger than normal human size in general. But my child did not complain of any pain. The situation even occurred when my child was not sick. Is the condition, fairly normal? Thank you for the explanation ..
Good evening, thanks for the question
Lymphadenopathy is an enlarged lymph node in a particular location due to immune cells in it which become active due to several conditions, one of which is the inflammatory process in the organ
around it. Children who often experience a cold cough can also be accompanied by symptoms of lymphadenopathy in the neck area due to a viral infection or a type of streptococcus or staphylococcus in the upper respiratory tract. Lymphadenopathy can be accompanied by pain in touch and can occur on one side or both sides of the neck. Once the infection is resolved, the size of the lymph nodes will return to normal, which is not palpable. There is no specific treatment for this condition because it is not permanent and will gradually recover when the infection in the throat has been resolved. Take medication when the child has a cold cough accompanied by enlarged lymph nodes, but if the enlargement persists or is found not only in the neck but also in other locations, then consult the condition again with your doctor for further examination.
That's all, hope you can help.
