Have lump on hairline, head cold. OTC medication? Taken medication for bladder infection

I have had a headcold and about two days ago I found a lump on my hairline (it is somewhat hard and ball like atnthe occipital region) on the right side it kinda felt like a muscle thing but I am leaning towards a lymph node there anything over the counter I can take for this and it is starting to be a little tender around it...maybe draining? I just got off medication for a bladder infection and just came down with this cold that affects my nose eyes and my ears feel a little clogged.....I can t get into a doctor right away and need to know what I can do to help bring the lymph node down to normal

It appears that you are developing with folliculitis.The most important and important and the only precaution you must follow is not to touch, pinch pop or squeeze any of them other wise it can get infected and can cause complications. You are kindly take a good antibiotic containing cefadroxil or ciprofloxacin or amoxycillin which you should take as a complete course of 7 days.
