I had a bacterial infection about 2 weeks ago and

Patient : I had a bacterial infection about 2 weeks ago and since i started feeling better i didn't take my last antibiotic. Now, since last thursday I've had one of my neck lymph nodes swollen. Starting this week I've been having some fever and a mild headache but once I take acetaminophen I feel completely normal. Today, I went to the enfermery and even though I felt warm, i didn't have any fever and my blood pressure was normal. I also started my antibiotics again yesterday because the nurse told me that this might be caused by not taking the entire azithromycin treatment. Also, I'm 16 years old.
