Possible insect bite: Swollen lymph nodes seldom itch. It's possible that you got an insect bite, which itches, and a nearby lymph node may have become swollen and tender. If symptoms increase, or don't resolve in a few days, it's best to see a physician. Meanwhile, warm (not hot) compresses may hasten recovery. Avoid scratching or squeezing the affected area. ...Read more

Your son's history of "bad acne" would support finding a prominent lymph node in this area however additional features are needed to confirm a benign nature eg. consistency, mobility. See your doctor for definitive assessment & to evaluate adequacy of your son's present acne regimen ...Read more

Lump on left side of neck for 2 weeks 3 new lumps on the right side of my neck night sweats low grade fever sore throat very tired. Drs opinion?

Viral infection: It is likely you are reacting to a viral infection, which is almost endemic this time of year. It is "good" that the lymph swelling is bilateral, it tells that you are reacting systemically to the virus, and the same with the low grade fever. The lymph glands take quite a while to reduce. If worsens, see md. ...Read more
