I have psoriasis on my scalp and parts of my body. Can this relate to the swollen glands on my neck?
Yes. If the psoriasis on the scalp is significant and irritated the glands in your neck especially in the back of the neck can swell. The psoriasis can also be secondarily infected. Treatment can include topicals such as taclonex, nclobex, dmasmoothe fx, and keralyt gel. If necessary injections in the scalp can help.Since treatment needs to be individualized see a dermatologist.
Not likely. Probably from something else like an infection.
Have very bad swollen glands on neck, sore throart, no voice and sores on scalp since oct 1 2014, seen family dr twice says shingles meds not working?
Not shingles? Your first three symptoms do not sound like shingles but severe pharyngitis/laryngitis, probably viral. You don't say if the sores on the scalp are painful, but the scalp is not a common place for shingles. I suspect you have an associated folliculitis (infected/inflamed hair follicles) and may need topical or oral antibiotics. I would consult a dermatologist. Good luck! Read more...
