Almost everyone faces swollen lymph nodes. In some cases, the inflammation goes away on its own, while in others, this process is an alarming symptom of a serious illness, so it requires attention. To understand the causes of nodule enlargement, it is necessary to understand the role of the lymphatic system in our body.
The main task of the lymphatic system is to fight infection that enters the body and even malignant tumors. The nodes are small pea-sized formations that act as filters, that is, they “collect” microbes from the lymph fluid. The main causes of lymph node enlargement are:
- Infection is the most common of all causes. The infection can be viral, bacterial and fungal. It enters the lymphatic system with fluid and lingers in the nodes.
- Diseases of the immune system. These include rheumatoid arthritis, dermatomyositis, Kawasaki disease, and others.
- Tumors – both benign and malignant.
The nodes are located throughout the body, and the largest accumulation is in the neck, armpits, and groin. In more than 70% of cases, the cause of their increase is an infection. Depending on its type, the nodes of certain parts of the body become enlarged. For example, inflammation of the nodes in the neck is usually accompanied by cold symptoms and indicates an upper respiratory tract infection. And enlarged nodes only in the inguinal region most often indicate the entry into the body of a sexually transmitted infection.
Lymph nodes can periodically increase locally for a short period of time (up to one day). However, if pain and other symptoms appear or the inflammation does not go away on its own, you should consult a doctor.
For the prevention and cleansing of the lymphatic system, Origel has developed the drug Revita-U. Completely made from herbal ingredients, it is extremely effective in helping the body cleanse itself of toxins, toxins and other dangerous substances. Revita U contains vitamin U, rutin and vitamin C. Vitamin U, i.e. S-methylmethionine, is an excellent radical scavenger and antioxidant. It affects the body in several places, primarily at the intercellular level. In these places, it transforms molecules that cannot be eliminated or that are difficult to remove from the body so that they can be excreted as metabolites. Thus, it facilitates the penetration into the cell of those molecules that are necessary for cell building.
