Patient :I have had a small pea size lump dead center under my chin for 3 days it's sore t the touch..I have had a bad cold and finished taking a full course of zpac last week...any advice..no insurance here!!
In my opinion there is no need for you to be concerned about the swelling in your chin. The swelling is most probably a swollen lymph node due to the sore throat and should resolve shortly after the infection subsides. I would suggest that you gargle with warm saline and take over the counter anti-inflammatory medication like motrin/advil if there is tenderness of the swelling.
