Your Cold and Flu Symptoms, Explained
The Symptom: Swollen GlandsWhat it means: Your lymph nodes are producing an army of infection-fighting cells to battle the invading virus.
When to worry: If your glands remain enlarged for several weeks after a cold or the flu is gone, that could be, in rare cases, a sign of a more serious illness, such as lymphoma.
Home remedies: There’s not much you can do to reduce swollen glands. They should return to normal within a few weeks.
Over-the-counter remedies: Other cold or flu symptoms will probably bother you more, but acetaminophen or ibuprofen can ease any discomfort caused by the engorged glands.
