Swollen occipital bone and nodes near it very itchy, also itchy rash all over my body. What can I do.

Nondiagnostic: Without inspecting the type of rash, no specific diagnosis can be made. The lymph nodes are most likely reacting to the rash itself.

In the meantime try antihistamine like benadryl (causes drowsiness) or Claritin (loratadine) which doesn't cause drowsiness. Try to think of any new exposure to foods or other substances. ...Read more
