Hi, I have a 23 month old baby.
2 months ago, he had a viral and a ear infection.His throat just got huge. the doctor old us it was probably lymph nodes and it would go away. 2months later. It is till not gone. The baby had an abscess the past weekend and had to be admitted to the hospital. The ct scan indicates 2 cysts- not sure if it is lyph nodes. there is also a tissue nercossis when the doctor did a biopsy.
He has been on a couple of antibiotics (omnicel, augmentum, amoxillin) and also iv antibiitics in the hospital.They have now put him on zithromax.
All blood work is fine and also aerobic/anaerobic cultures are negative.
The biopsy is negative as well.
So, what is really causing this ?.We need to have surgery early next week but am perplexed by this.
