Inflamed lymph nodes

Anyone have any ideas on how to get inflamed lymph nodes to go back down to there original size. I have 2 on the back of my head and 1 under my jawline and they hurt like hell. I've had them for a few months now and I rarely get sick so I don't know why I've got them inflamed for. :wall:

Recently I had two behind my ear (not actually on my ear, behind it lol) and after posting about it here - suspecting they were cysts - I have a theory that it was an allergic reaction, possibly to peaches I ate the day before. I never eat peaches so it makes sense, although I have yet to test my theory. This was almost 3 weeks ago and they are pretty much flat now, so it was normal IMO. But if yours are huge, multiple, and long-lasting, you should go see your doctor. =/

Edit: I just caught that you said yours are painful, which is more incentive to get them checked out. I did not notice mine until I brushed some hair behind my ear and felt them. Unless I pressed them, they did not hurt at all.
