General nursing care of superficial acute lymphadenitis and lymphangitis

Lymph nodes are enlarged, and the most common cause is infection. The extent of the enlargement depends on the location of the infection. Laryngeal and ear infections may cause swollen lymph nodes in the neck, and head infections may cause swollen lymph nodes behind the ears; Infections in the hands or arms can cause swollen subaxillary lymph nodes, and infections in the feet and legs can cause swollen inguinal lymph nodes. Children's neck lymph nodes are most common, and it is easy to notice this part.

In most people, a sore throat, a cold, an inflamed tooth (abscess), an ear infection or an insect bite are all causes of swollen lymph nodes. However, if the lymph node enlargement appears in the front and middle of the neck or just above the clavicle, you must consider causes other than infection, such as tumors, cysts or thyroid dysfunction.
