Immune function: Wow. You are 29. A swollen lymph node represents immune system activity. This means health. An active lymph system is doing it job correctly.

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?

Infant lymph nodes: Hello. The enlarged node is most likely unrelated to the heat rash your infant had 1 month ago. Occipital nodes are more noticeable in infants because their skin is thinner. The nodes should be "rubbery" in feel and move easily. Most common reasons for enlargement would be a scalp rash like "cradle cap." You can get the nodes checked by the pediatrician, but they are probably normal. ...Read more
