Swollen lymph nodes


Q: Hi I'm tiffany, I'm 19 years old. Within the last two weeks I have gotten and am presently getting over a nasty cold which I'm almost sure is an upper respiratory infection I picked up from my son. Also I have gotten cold sores on my top lip, and what feels to be inside my nose. About three or four days ago I noticed a deep pimple developed under the skin on my chin on the left side. Last night I had a soreness feeling right under my chin where my jaw bone is. Today I noticed If I feel I can feel a rather small knot kind of feels like a small lump or ball there. it is painful when I touch it but it does move around. I am aware that this could be my lymph nodes. .what's causing it?

Symptoms:  Just painful and uncomfortable to the touch.
