How To Deal With Swollen Lymph Nodes?
I want to ask, r n my neck had swollen lymph nodes, then I was taken to a pharmacy given antibiotics and drunk until they run out then the lymph nodes shrink. What lifestyle should I do so that the disease does not recur?
Hello Fauzan Fikri,
Lymph nodes contain a collection of white blood cells that function to maintain the body's energy. If the body is infected, either by bacteria, viruses, parasites, then the lymph glands can become enlarged, which is known as lymphadenopathy. the lymph nodes that usually experience swelling include the armpits, under the chin, neck and groin creases.
However, further examination by an internal medicine doctor is needed to be able to distinguish whether the condition is caused by viruses, bacteria or parasites. Determining the cause of swollen lymph nodes is important to determine the best treatment. If a person experiences a condition due to a viral infection, then there is no need to take antibiotics because it will heal by itself as the body's immunity increases. Taking antibiotics without indication will increase the risk of antibiotic resistance.
To prevent this disease from recurring, it is advisable to maintain immunity, for example by consuming a nutritionally balanced diet, getting enough rest, avoiding too late, exercise regularly, use a mask if the closest person is experiencing an infectious illness, especially a viral infection.
so hopefully useful,
