Neosporin or similar: Apply a topical antibiotic such as Neosporin or bacitracin. The main effect of these ointments is to keep the area moist and draining.

The other day my right side of my body went numb in my fingers and my mouth, I think I have hurt the top of my neck also. .Do you think it's a stroke?

The other day my right side of my body went numb in my fingers and my mouth, I think I have hurt the top of my neck also. .Do you think it's a stroke?

Probably not: It's difficult to connect mouth numbness and loss of sensation in fingers to an anatomic problem at the level of the brain--especially if these symptoms were not associated with loss of strength. Has this problem recurred? Do you have any weakness? Are there any other areas of facial numbness, difficulty with speech or swollowing? I recommend seeing your physician for detailed neurological exam. ...Read more

In the meantime, gargle with warm salt water and suck on lozenges which sooth the inflamed throat. ...Read more

Tender lymph node: First, i would not assume it is not his throat - 2 year old don't differentiate location very well, and he may have no clue what you mean when you ask if his throat hurts.

Have it checked: Progressive changes like this usually require formal evaluation for an examination of the area to determine if other tests or imaging are necessary. It is possible that these are unrelated and resolve but a pain or neck stiffness lasting a week with new additional symptoms warrants a thorough exam.
