    I have had swollen lymph glands in my neck for years but the ones under my arms are less frequent. Lately, they have been sore in both armpits and it is starting to make me a bit worried. Anyone else have these for weeks on end? Is there anything to ease the soreness? Also, I have had a cold sore on my lips and a cyst/acne type swelling to the right of and below my mouth. Is the cyst possibly a type of herpes, too? I have chronic HHV6 and EBV. Thanks for any thoughts.

    hi me2. i was told that herpes sores do not usually produce pus....

    maybe you should have some immune function testing to see how your immune system is doing.

    I've had sore throats and sore glands in various parts of my body for nearly 30 years. Original viral symptoms were acute. Valtrex and Imunovir have helped me to bring done the intensity and frequency of these.

    Thank you both. I am on Imunovir and Famvir, but I have had a sinus infection (seems like I am prone to them). Maybe the sinus infection with all the other viral stuff we ME folks have is overloading my glands? Guess the cyst thing is just an infected pore. I get the weirdest symptoms! Feel like I belong in Ripley's sometimes - lol Do you think the swollen glands under the arms could be related to any breast issues? I keep thinking maybe I need a mammogram but I really hate to "worry" myself into a mammogram - Ugh! What do you think?

    I get the sinus infections as well so totally sympathise. Also the cyst type infected pores. I've shown my doctor one of the underarm lumps and yes, she did send me off for a mammogram and then the lump was cut out and tested. It was fine. Now though I have a scar has never settles down and throbs and becomes redder / painful when the rest of the glands play up. I won't be doing that again...
