Infection unlikely


Infection anywhere in the body will show signs of inflammation besides Pain. Inflammation will produce fever and local tenderness and reddness. In the absence of these signs, infection is unlikely. Pain in the arm can originate in the neck in case there is pressure on the nerves. You should ask your doctor to give you some pain medication and continue to monitor your pain. More tests may be requir

Could pierced ear infection spread to armpit lymph node?

Answered by:
Systemic-flu symptom; lymph nodes; Any location

NOT REALLY...


Regional/local lymph nodes can be affected resulting in swelling, pain, hot and tender. These are, pre-auricular, post -auricular, sub-occipital, posterior cervical groups. Lymph Nodes are the part of immune system, catch bacteria, kill them and after sometime come back to normal size. If bad infection, lymph nodes can become purulent. Armpit lymph nodes are far away to be involved
