However, there are other skin disorders that can cause rashes. These are usually not serious unless ...Read more

Injury from tree between neck and shoulder, severe pain, stiff neck, red itchy rash burns when touched and swollen lymph nodes? Been to chiropractor

Injury from tree between neck and shoulder, severe pain, stiff neck, red itchy rash burns when touched and swollen lymph nodes? Been to chiropractor

See a physician: Nothing against chiropractors but the rash and lymph nodes are not in their field of expertise and should be evaluated by a physician. If the chiropractor has been unable to help with the neck and shoulder discomfort i would take any imaging he/she has done and seek an opinion for an orthopedic doctor. Could be just soft tissue injury or maybe a small fracture. Please see an md for evaluation. ...Read more

Hard immovable lump where top of neck and base of skull meet along the hairline (occipital lymph node?); itchy scalp; swollen lymph nodes on neck

Hard immovable lump where top of neck and base of skull meet along the hairline (occipital lymph node?); itchy scalp; swollen lymph nodes on neck

Don't worry: It's common at age 16 to have enlarged lymph nodes- you have an active immune system. The lymph nodes at the base of your skull in back are occipital lymph nodes. They get big from viral infections, particularly mononucleosis. If these wax and wane in size, don't worry. If they stay big, see a doctor. Rarely 16-year-olds get lymphoma. I don't think your itchy scalp is related; dandruff? ...Read more
