Hello doc I have lymph node infection, can antibiotics treat lymph node infections?

1 Answer:

Hello, son.

Humans have lymph nodes that are spread in several parts of the body. Lymph nodes can develop infections, both viral and bacterial infections that cause swelling. Apart from infection, swollen lymph nodes can also be caused by autoimmune, drug side effects, and malignancy.

To ascertain the cause of infection whether bacterial or viral, it requires a direct examination by a doctor, if necessary blood tests, CT scans, MRI, and biopsy. Management of infection of the lymph nodes will depend on the cause of the infection. For example, if it is caused due to a viral infection, the doctor can give painkillers and anti-inflammation. While antibiotics are only given if the infection is caused due to a bacterial infection. The selection of antibiotics will also be adjusted to the results of the doctor's examination.

I suggest that you see a doctor directly so that further tests can be done to ascertain the cause of the infection first. If it is confirmed, then the doctor provides further treatment. Doctors can give antibiotics if it is needed to overcome bacterial infections.

If it feels painful, you can use a compress called dinigin to reduce the pain accompanied by adequate rest, drink lots of water, consume healthy and nutritious food, and don't squeeze or massage swollen lymph nodes.

Hope it helps you,

Thank you
