It may be: Investigate the "lymph node". Ultrasound of the soft tissue will confirm if it is a node, fine needle aspiration of the lymph node will tell one if it is reactive to the pathology in the area. If it is so, then you need to treat the cause of the cracking dry scaly skin. See your dr / dermatologist. Good luck
