    1. Yes. It goes off automatically with receding symptoms of common cold. With or without treatment, common cold is cured with your own body's immunity power.

    1. Lymphatic system is nothing but a scavenging system [a part of immune system]-----collecting toxins, produced out of bacterial/viral infections/auto immune disorders, etc., from each and every organ and put the debris into excretory channels. They are urine, faeces, skin, menses [females] and lungs.

    2. Lymph nodes are our first line of defense against pathogens so they may swell randomly just from exposure to bacteria or viruses. In any ailment, be it cancer, HIV/AIDS/Muscular Dystrophy/Autism/Diabetes/chronic allergies, etc.,--the first system to be affected is lymphatic system. Lump in armpit is also natural phenomenon.

    boil, also known as a furuncle is a skin abscess, a painful bump that forms under the skin - it is full of puss. A carbuncle is collection of boils that develop under the skin.

    1. possible causes of swollen lymph nodes. They include:

    • Other cancers that have spread (metastasized) to lymph nodes

    Other possible, but rare causes include certain medications, such as the anti-seizure medication phenytoin (Dilantin), and preventive medications for malaria.

    2. The lymph node enlargement--------is the first symptom/sign of working immune system. The swollen lymph node[s] may turn into a cyst, carbuncle, furuncle, abscess, boil, and pustule, tumor [benign and malignant].

    Cure: Lymph* Glands— (enlargement of) Mixture of CF 3x KM 3x and NP 3x. If gland is stony hard give CF 3x alone.

    Lymph nodes are part of your immune system and they often swell when working hard to fight an illness or infection.
