Depending on the type of infection and the age of the patient, the extent of the experienced symptoms may vary. In most cases, however, swollen glands and lymph nodes can be observed. Swollen lymph nodes are an indication that the body is dealing with an infection or illness. They are mostly found in the neck, armpits, groin, and behind the ear. You can check for swollen lymph nodes by gently massaging the area with your fingers. To make sure that the illness is in fact roseola, look for a rash that develops after a fever, as well as fatigue and irritability.
