    Castor oil seems to be really effective. But I am kind of afraid that this can be a bit hard to find some oil like this and use as a remedy for swollen glands. And it may take some money as well. If the symptoms are not so serious, I suggest this simple method. We can use warm compress to apply on neck. The swollen glands will be taken care of and soon get better.

    Honey is a suitable choice for treating swollen glands, I guess. Almost all the families have a bottle of honey in their home. I recommend to use honey with several slices of lemon, it will cure the swollen glands quickly.

    Mint is often considered the most effective remedies for swollen glands or even when you cough hard. Yet I think my situation is harder to treat as I have used mint leaves and mint candies for several days but the pain has not left. Should I go to the drugstore and buy medicine instead?

    • Lily Partinson

      I think it is a good choice. Mint is really highly appreciated but even by using this to treat, your pain hasn’t been treated well, so I think you had better go to the doctor and ask him for help. Do not underestimate any of your health related problems.

    We should not ignore the swollen glands. They may cause no harm, but they can also be a big risk of many diseases, even cancer. I have seen some cases which the patients did not notice these glands, as they did not think that it was a big problem. In fact, they had to pay with their health and even their lives.

    • Lena Richie

      I agree with you. Right when we realize the symptoms of swollen glands, we should go to the physicians and ask them about your case. If there is nothing serious, you can use home remedies. But if there is any strange signal, do not hesitate to spend time and money to treat as soon as possible.

    Many people still don’t know much about the symptoms of swollen glands. I really think that you should realize them so as to protect yourself from any possible disease whose symptoms relate to swollen glands. There are some signs such as pain in the nodes, swelling, tenderness and warmth in the involved area. By touching them, you can doubt and consider to use a suitable remedy.
