Hi there

Has anyone ever had enlarged nymph nodes behind their ear? ENT have told me this is what is wrong with me. Its extremely painful. What treatment have people been given?

I have them all the time. Almost any time your lymph nodes are swollen it means your body is fighting off some kind of infection. They can also swelll if they're fighting off bacteria or a virus.
Sometimes allergy problems or colds cause mine to swell. Right now I have cellulitis, a staph or strep infection in my leg. Fun, fun, fun. So they're really large now.
