In brief: SORE SCALP BUMP

CLINDAMYCIN CAN CAUSE SOME OF YOUR SIDE EFFECTS.
THE SWOLLEN LYMPH GLANDS MAY BE A RESULT OF THE INFECTION. DO SEE YOUR PCP OR A DERMATOLOGIST VERY SOON. BEST LUCK.

In brief: Below

The swollen lymph gland is secondary to the infection.
But the dizziness and lightheadedness is not. If this continues then you will need to see your DR again. Warm moist packs to the swollen gland will give some pain relief.

Check with your doctor again, sometimes what looks like a bacterial infection is cause by yeast.
