Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.
Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.
Do you have any other symptoms, such as a sore throat, skin infection on your head/face etc?
Has this happened before?
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
Thank you for that additional information.
What you are feeling are the normal lymph nodes in your neck. These help your body to fight all sorts of infections and issues.
They are normal and usually nothing to worry about.
If they don't go down in a week or so, or if you notice any other signs of infection (hacking up green goo etc) then have your MD take a look at you.
Does this make sense to you?
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.

They can become tender when they are fighting off an infection.
Sometimes when your body is hard at work getting rid of some sort of infection you don't have any symptoms....means your body is winning!
Just watch things for a few days and if you have any new symptoms you could see your MD.
But from what you have posted here today I bet you will be fine.Make sense?
