When we have a reactive lymph node it does not immediately disappear as we get better. I have had lymph nodes that are still noticeable a month or so after being ill that can still be felt. Then they disappear. What were you diagnosed with? A skin infection (mentioning itching and swelling by ear) or something sinus related?
It is usually caused by an infection either bacterial or viral. But lymph nodes may stay swollen after the infection is gone for a few months. Do you know what he was treating you for?
I went for FNAC but lab person refused to do so as lymph node was very less and he cant perform FNAC bcoz result will not be clear. Doctor prescribed rutoheal tab twice a day which has heal the swelling but it was causing me tongue ulcers on tip. I am still feeling pain in lymph node though and ear pain if I belches. I am very stressed due to all this. Does all this indicating some serious illness?
