Hi!
Yes, you can have swollen glands from chronic cough and cold. Chronic cough and cold are often allergic and can be due to mold infection too. A damp wall in the house, carpets, and ACs are all potential sources of mold. It can also be due to EBV infection.  The other possibility is deviated nasal septum. Nasal polyps and tumors, worms in stool causing high eosinophil counts, gastric reflux are the other causes. The treatment will be complete only on removing the cause. Hence please consult an ENT specialist or your family doctor and discuss these possibilities. Depending on the cause treatment will be prescribed. Take care!
