Hello, IS it common for lymph nodes to be swollen in people without HIV. Can Acne be the cause of a swollen node in the neck. Also, if someone is HIV infected, would there lymph nodes be swollen throughout the body in various locations or could it just be one lymph node? Thank you for your assistance, hope to here from you...

Response from Dr. Boyle
