Hi and welcome to question doctors.com the possibility is having a chronic sinusitis is high ..so you need to see an ENT specialist ..
Other wise know that these antibiotic is to some degree not effective for treating anaerobic bacteria so you need to ask a specialist about the suitable for you.
If non if these then you should get US in your lymph node to measure their sizes and may be a biopsy later..
lymph node enlargement for more than 4 months has to be due to some reason. chest pain may be due to some pathological infective lesion inside the lungs. you should get a chest xray and a HRCT chest to come to a diagnosis.
consult a chest physician. get complete blood count done to see for any derangements.
Asthma wont cause lymph node enlargement for so many days. This is a sign of unresolving infection in the chest. Get the lymph node biopsy and histopathology done to confirm the diagnosis
THIS MAY BE RELATED TO EAR INFECTION..EITHER MIDDLE OR INNER EAR. MASTOIDITIS CAN ALSO PRESENT IN SIMILAR FASHION. CONSULT A ENT SPECIALIST.
THIS INFECTION CAN LEAD TO SURROUNDING LYMPH NODE ENLARGEMENT
