I have lumpy sores on the right of my scalp , painful and itching, swollen lyphnodes in neck and behind ear.since yesterday, now right side of face swollen and numb. Right hand swollen and sore since yesterday. Had these lumps a year ago. Went away on own. Dr. said ringworm , also had a shingles rash 18 months ago. had a cold for a couple weeks prior.
Hi, It seems that due to sore scalp there is infection took place in scalp leading to enlarged painful lymph nodes giving rise to neck pain and face swollen. Consult doctor and get examined for scalp and go for treatment. A course of antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicines will solve your problem. Treat the cause of infection on scalp like fungal infection, dandruff or dermatitis later on. Ok and take care.
