Hi. Thanks for posting your concern at HCM

I would keep a possibility of scalp infection with enlargement of regional lymph nodes.

I would advice that you get a prescription for an Oral antibiotic from your local practitioner.

Topical OTC antibacterial ointment e.g mupirocin 2% twice daily along with washing the scalp with a 5% cetrimide solution would help in curing the scalp infection

regards
take care
