Rashes on forehead, neck lymph node swollen, itchy. Bitten by mosquito. Remedy for above symptoms?

I have a spotty forehead , almost a rash . It s at the hairline and to the left. My left hand side neck lymph node is swollen and I feel quite itchy all over. The forehead rash has been for about 5-6 days. I am a air hostess and have been in Antigua for the last 4 days, I did get bitten by Mosquitos. Perhaps they are the source of my body itching. I m worried about the forehead and lymph nodes. Help?!

General Surgeon 's  Response
You seem to have allergic reaction to some insect bite and the site of bite has developed secondary bacterial infection due to which the lymphnode is enlarged.
You need to start an antibiotic as cloxacillin or amoxycillin along with an antiallergic as cetrizine. If you have rednes and pain than you may add an anti-inflammatory drug as voveran

Wishing you a speedy recovery
