I have a huge spot of swollen lymph nodes on my left arm just below the elbow on the thin side of hand. This has hurt and been achy since yesterday.

Should be seen by MD: Achy, painful swelling in forearm most likely from bite, bruise, or infection. Suspect insect bite or sting, cat scratch, or injury. Other rare possibilities. Worry if red, shiny top, soft center, fever, chill, or streak. Would have a health care professional examine it in next 24 hours. OK to take acetaminophen. Probably not serious, but best to be careful. ...Read more

My eczema has worsened & spread to my hands, arms, nipples, and legs. Oozes clear fluid. I have swollen lymph nodes & weeping eyes. What do you rec?

Time to see your Doc: If this is "just" your eczema, it sounds like it is not responding to current Rx, and you may require more intensive Rx (such as systemic (oral or injected) steroids, if you are already maxing out on topical steroids). However, I fear this may be more than just the eczema, such as a secondary infection, requiring additional therapy. In either case, you should see your primary or skin doctor. ...Read more

Malignant nodes aren't subtle. ...Read more

Very dry scalp on right side of head only and swollen lymph nodes at the nape of my neck/skull. Any ideas or suggestions?

Very dry scalp on right side of head only and swollen lymph nodes at the nape of my neck/skull. Any ideas or suggestions?

Inflammatory nodes.: Most nodes in neck that represent a metastatic process are found along the jugular vein. Nodes at the nape of the neck usually drain the scalp and as such with scalp problems, this would be the cause of the process and almost always represent inflammation. This can be controlled with warm soaks to the scalp and at times antibiotics. ...Read more

I have swollen lymph nodes in the neck one under left of chin and one in back of head right side don't have any symptoms had them for about 3 months?

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more
