What do you do for swollen lymph nodes?

Their purpose is to move the yucky stuff out of the body, but if there is an infection they can swell up, sometimes being very tender. Right now I have a swollen one and it's super irritating. I'm applying witch hazel + tea tree oil on the skin so it can be absorbed that way, and also taking Acidophilus (probiotic pill).

Oh, and also taking garlic and cutting it in pill sized pieces and just swallowing it.

sounds like you're on the right track. Remember, your body has to move that junk out, infection included!!

I haven't had the issue myself without having some sort of respitory illness at the same time, and it's always gone away when the illness went away.

I did use the herb cleavers, made into a tea, for my rottie girl Iria at the end, when her leg with the cancer, the lymph nodes got all swollen. It did help reduce down the swelling a bit.

I don't do anything for them. They go away on their own.

It's all gone now! I did do a hot and cold compress on the lymph node and by the next day it was MUCH better
