Discussions that mention penicillin

Lymphomas board

I don’t have a diagnosis to explain these blood cell counts, so I think I'm going to post this on the leukemia board as well. How concerned should I be about the low neutrophils and high lymphocytes? I’ve also got three enlarged lymph nodes in the left side of my neck, two below my jaw just under the ear and one further toward the back. I first noticed them a month ago and they have not responded to six days of penicillin, which I am currently taking.
