Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well.

Possible allergy: The little rash on baby neck may be due any allergy to the linen or blanket used to wrap him. Babies have sensitive skin, little friction may cause skin changes like rash. Apply hydrocortisone skin ointment and watch for any change in rash. If rash is increasing, then consult your doctor.

Vertigo, painful lipoma (calf), burning nerve sensation (off/on) leg, numbness in face around eye (left). Rash behind ear down neck.

You are uncomforable: Not all of your symptoms will fit into one neat diagnosis. I'd start with a good neurology exam which can address vertigo, burning leg sensation, numbness of the face.

See a Dermatologist: It is really impossible to say what this rash may be without a more detailed history and exam. I suggest you make an appointment with a Dermatologist to have this evaluated properly.

Eczema or birthmark: This can be a type of eczema or mild inflammation of a birthmark typically called a "stork bite." moisturize the area with vaseline multiple times per day for 1 week. If that doesn't work, follow-up with your pediatrician.

Hello. My 5months old baby has red rash behind both ears, it's not itchy. She also has miner rashes around the neck and legs but not red.

This sounds like: Eczema or seborrhea, both of which are quite common at this age. Depending on where you live, this could be affected by dry weather and sometimes a food/milk allergy. You can try over-the-counter Aquaphor. If that doesn't help, please discuss with her pediatrician.

Fungal rash?: You may have a fungal rash based on what you are describing. I recommend to see your physician for treatment because if it is fungal, it will likely not resolve on its own.

Suspect cellulitis: I am concerned about your symptoms. This should be evaluated urgently and you may need antibiotics. If you had a more gradual onset of symptoms this could also be serious. Either way you need to see a doctor within 24 hours. Mark off the red area with a pen. If you see it enlarging quickly you may need a more urgent attention.

See doctor: It the rash is scaly around the edge and ring like, consider a fungal infection. On the other hand, this is not the usually place fungi infect. Make sure you are not allergic to hair dye or hair preparations.

Call your doctor.: A 10 month old with a rash and a fever should be evaluated in person. We can't tell what this is online. It could be nothing to worry about, or it could be an infectious disease (like measles) that could be contagious to others, or need treatment. Please call the baby's doctor ASAP to get their advice.

Rash: The small lump may just be a swollen lymph nodes. But a more specific answer probably requires a dermatologist to look at the rash. Does not sound like a contact dermatitis.
