Medical Treatment

A lymph node that is rapidly growing over one to two days has a different cause and treatment than generalized swelling of lymph nodes that occurs over a few months. Express concerns with a doctor at the time of examination because this helps to establish a diagnosis.

* Standard treatment for swollen lymph nodes may include pain relievers and medicine to lower a fever, such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen. Warm compresses and elevation may help reduce and resolve swelling.

* If the cause of the swelling is infection, the doctor may prescribe antibiotics or antiviral medications.

* If there is a localized abscess, it may need to be drained by cutting open the skin and then filling the opening with packing.

* For swelling due to malignancy, the treatment may involve surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy.

* If a person has an immune disorder, he/she may be prescribed medication to help with the disease.

You can simply neglect them and they will, in most cases, shrink back to their normal size.  The swelling, however, isn't the problem.  That's just the indicator that something's wrong with that part of the body.  What needs treatment is that cause of the swelling, not the swelling itself.  The question you're asking is the equivalent of asking, "My smoke alarm just went off and it won't  stop.  Can you tell me how to turn it off?"
