One of my very closest friend's daughter (age 4 now) had a lymph node swell so much it was visible on her neck. The area was also reddened. After much go round and various treatments (draining, antibiotics, etc.) it was managed at a big hospital under infectious disease and was found to be a mycobacteria infection. She did the very long course of oral antibiotics and has been given the clear. I stayed away as much as possible during this time. I find myself still not wanting to go near their home but wonder if I'm being overly cautious. The question is now am I safe to be around this household or should I not go there? I will also ask my doctor but curious what you all think/would do?
