Of recent I have noticed that I get glands on my neck whenever I get a painful pimple. Is this a sign of something serious or what? I get panicky because I relate swollen glands to HIV. HELP!

Ella, it is normal if the pimple is in the face and the glands go away once the pimple has cleared up. If it isn’t the case, the best would be to see your doctor. Good luck.
