Swollen Lymph nodes

Patient

Q: I had strep throat a month ago and had swollen lymph nodes on both side of neck-not too swollen but definitely there. For some reason I couldn't stop touching it and playing around with it and i still cant! now it did go down somewhat but its still there and I'm getting kind of nervous! It's very soft and mobile and I still touch it all day! so what i want to know is if I need to see a doctor about this... could it be anything more serious? or is it simply still there because of all the touching? is there a chance it will never go down? i appreciate your answer.
