How long does it take for the swelling to go away sweat gland on hair line back of neck

How long does it take for the swelling to go away sweat gland on hair line back of neck

A week or two: If it is heat-rash, it should go away in a week or two if you can keep cool and dry. Often, no treatment is needed. Topical steroid may help it go away a bit faster, but typically not really needed. If it is not a heat-rash, you may have swollen lymphnodes, they may take couple of weeks.

Is there a sweat gland that looks like bumps on your testical sac?

Is there a sweat gland that looks like bumps on your testical sac?

Yes and common...: Hyperactive sebaceous glands of hair follicles do appear wherever hairs exist although the degree and number may widely vary among all people, which seems linked with genetic factors so nothing needs to be done or should be done except occasional superinfection like pimples on face. More? Seek pro-evaluation and counseling timely. ...Read more
