• Warmth, inflammation, and redness at the site of the lymph node

Treatment for Inflamed Glands
In some cases, the glands may return to normal size without treatment, but in other cases, effective treatment is required. The exact treatment approach depends on the cause of the symptom. For example, if cancer is suspected, your doctor will perform a biopsy of the lymph node to help confirm the diagnosis.
If the issue is a viral or bacterial infection, medication will be prescribed. Additionally, other holistic or natural remedies may be applied to effectively treat the condition in many cases.
Homeopathic remedies can be applied to treat swollen lymph glands. Mercurius solubilis, Kali muriaticum, and other treatments, as well as a homeopathic tincture, can help drain the lymphatic system and stimulate an appropriate immune response.
Herbal remedies may also be applied to treat the condition. Garlic is one of the most well-known natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial treatments. It will help reduce inflammation and support regular immune function. Other herbal remedies that should help include Echinacea, licorice root, turmeric, ginger, goldenseal, colloidal silver, cleavers, and more.
Vitamins and minerals can also support the immune system and restore lymphatic function. Vitamin A, vitamin C, zinc, selenium, vitamin D3, fish oil, and probiotics are all effective remedies depending on the cause of the inflammation.
If you have recently completed a self-exam or have simply run your hand over your neck or behind your ear and discovered a lump, it’s likely that a swollen lymph node is a cause. While the issue might be minor, it is important to consult your doctor, as the inflammation could be linked to more aggressive concerns, such as a bacterial infection, parasites, and cancer.
