The issues with: Impetigo and yeast infection may be separate from the pressure behind eyes, headache, swollen, painful nodes. The sxs are not specific for any one condition - so would seek med eval if not improving.

See answer: Only concerned in that your newest symptoms may represent a third type of infection in a relatively short time. Immune system suppressed? Number of potential causes of current symptoms with perhaps viral infection being most likely in which case should be self-limiting. If symptoms persist or worsen, need md evaluation again.
