2 month old had a heat rash to neck 1 month ago. Enlarged lymph node appeared. Now new one appeared to other side-occipital? When worry lymphoma?

You can get the nodes checked by the pediatrician, but they are probably normal. ...Read more

I have what looks like heat rash in both armpits. Its spreading down my arms & sides, but my arms & sides look like i have chicken pox. What's wrong?

There are other things it could be like out of control fungus, contact allergy (any new deodorants?) or less likely the start of some viral infection--I doubt chicken pox tho. ...Read more
