Inflammation of the lymph nodes in the armpits is a rather unpleasant disease. It is characterized by enlargement of the lymph glands to the size of a pea or more, weakness, dizziness, general malaise, headache, and fever. However, in most cases, lymphadenitis (this disease bears this name in medicine) is a concomitant sign of infection of the human body with viruses.

- - vitamin C
To heal the inflamed lymph nodes, you first need to cure the infection that could cause the inflammation. Usually the source of the problem is located in close proximity to the most inflamed lymph node. Therefore, if you notice the symptoms of such a disease, the first thing to do is see a doctor to treat the infection.
In addition, you can use traditional methods of treating lymphadenitis. Various herbal preparations and herbal tinctures will help relieve inflammation. An example of a wonderful remedy for treatment is Canadian goldenseal powder. This plant has antiseptic properties. Take 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon powder three times daily.
Echinacea herb heals perfectly. For treatment, purchase a ready-made echinacea tincture. Place 10 drops in a glass and then fill it a quarter with water or juice. Take the medicine 4 times a day.
Taking vitamin C can be a good help in the fight against the disease. Taking this vitamin, you will increase the number of leukocytes in the blood and create the necessary conditions for them to resist pathogenic bacteria. Try taking 250 mg 3 times a day to get started. If there are no noticeable results, then the dosage should be increased to 500 mg, or even up to 1000 mg per dose. Vitamin C actively helps the body fight infections, which leads to a decrease in inflammation of the lymph nodes.
If lymphadenitis does not go away for more than three weeks, and there are no visible infections in the body, then you should not continue treatment with alternative methods. In this case, it is best to contact a specialist who will determine the cause of the inflammation and prescribe the necessary therapy.
