Inflammation of the lymph nodes in the neck may indicate inflammation of the pharynx, tonsils, ears, head and be observed with a common cold. Swelling and pain do not always disappear from the lymph immediately after recovery, in some cases, unpleasant symptoms continue to bother. With a strong increase in lymph, you should immediately go to the hospital. To remove the inflammatory process at home, it is enough to carry out a series of procedures that will bring relief.
It is necessary
- - antibiotics;
- - salt;
- - "Zvezdochka" ointment;
- - diuretics.
Taking antibiotics is an important step in the treatment of lymph node diseases. It is almost impossible to do without this, and at the same time it is possible to cure the cause of the inflammatory process (throat, colds, etc.). But it is unrealistic to buy the antibiotics you need without a special prescription, so go to a therapist, and at the same time a doctor will examine you. Take antibiotics until complete recovery, but remember that lymph swelling does not always go away instantly.
Do neck warming. For this purpose, heat table salt in a frying pan or in the oven, pour it into a sock or wrap it in a shawl and keep the compress for about 40-120 minutes. But with warming up, you need to be extremely careful, if there is pus in the lymph nodes, then it can break through and cause serious complications. It is best to get an ultrasound scan before proceeding with such procedures.
To relieve swelling, lubricate the lymph node area with an asterisk (ointment). It will not only stimulate the outflow of fluid from the tissues, but also have a warming effect and promote recovery. You can buy this remedy at any pharmacy.
Take a mild diuretic, such as a urologic preparation. During the period of illness, a lot of fluid accumulates in the body, and because of this, the healing process is delayed. You can buy lymphatic drainage - a special herbal complex. They have an antimicrobial effect, relieve swelling from the lymph nodes and improve the general condition.
If there is still no improvement, go to the hospital again. Sometimes surgery is needed to flush out the pus. But this is an extreme measure, doctors most often adhere to conservative treatment rather than surgical. When the lymphs become inflamed, first of all, you need to look for the cause, and only then engage in treatment.
