Would toddler have symptoms w/ skull fracture? He bump heads w/bro. There's a soft red swollen bump on forehead for 3 days. Touch doesn't bother him.

Often not: But our design is protective here. The forehead in toddlers is thicker than other parts of the skull and if he shows no signs of altered behavior nor illness it is probably O.K.

I have swollen lymph nodes in the neck one under left of chin and one in back of head right side don't have any symptoms had them for about 3 months?

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. ...Read more

My external occipital protoreal bone back of my head is lil swollen and sore could it be caused by wisdom tooth coming in no other symptoms healthy 31?

My external occipital protoreal bone back of my head is lil swollen and sore could it be caused by wisdom tooth coming in no other symptoms healthy 31?

Highly Unlikely: That sounds highly unlikely. But, there's one sure way to find out...Just have your wisdom teeth removed (which you probably should have done anyway), and see what happens to your swelling. If the swelling persists, it's obviously not related. In any case, any swelling which lasts longer than a few days should be checked anyway, so have that lump looked at regardless of your wisdom teeth. ...Read more

Reactive: These nodes are reacting to the bug bite on the scalp. Ibuprofen could help with swelling. If the nodes continue to swell or get worse a course of antibiotics could be helpful. So I would see the doc in 1-2 weeks if not better. ...Read more

Bit by a tick on back of head a week ago, no rash, sore neck, swollen lymph nodes, flu like symptoms, soreness only getting worse. Should I go to er?

Primary Dr can check: On the west coast, the western black-legged tick can bite humans, and can cause lyme disease, after feeding for 24-48 hours. A lab can test such a tick for lyme disease bacteria. The doctor may treat with antibiotics if the lab finds lyme bacteria, if the bite site has a bull's-eye rash, or if there are other worries... Such as a lot of irritation and maybe a skin infection at the bite site. ...Read more

Otherwise likely a bug bite if it itches. Hard to say without any pics also. Can use some over counter Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or cortisone cream ...Read more
