Swollen Lymph Node with Discharge
On Sep 13, I received a Flu Shot from a local drugstore.  A couple of days later my left axillary Lymph Nodes began to swell.  After about a week, the swelling was down somewhat.  I visited my health care provider who told me it was not systemic, and not to worry, that was on Sep 21.

On Oct 2, the swollen lymph nodes had spread to adjacent nodes in my left armpit.  Originally it was 2 or 3 nodes in the center of my armpit.  This time, it's about 4 to 5 nodes, out side the original swollen nodes.  One of them, in the front of my left armpit is very large.  I revisited my HCP and was again told not to worry, sometimes it can take a month or more for the swelling to go down.  

Today, on Oct 9, I was checking the node out and when I pressed on it, some bloody pus was discharged.  Further pressing resulted in some more discharge.

Since my HCP has todl me not to worry twice now, should I go back, wait and see, or seek emergent care elsewhere?

Thanks

You PCP sounds like mine, always "wait and see untill it's to late. Don't wait, If I were you I go to your local E.R. That's where they found out that I had a high Lymphocyte count and my fight goes on to this day. They can direct you to all the "RIGHT DOCTORS"!!!
