Hi ! Good afternoon. I am Dr Shareef answering your query. With your kind of history, it seems that there is a spreading infection due to the sores on your scalp. If I were your doctor, I would start a broad spectrum antibiotic specially effective against staphylococcus and streptococcus. The spreading infection has caused the reactive lymphadenitis, giving rise to the swollen glands. Once the infection is controlled, all will be ok. I hope this information would help you in discussing with your family physician/treating doctor in further management of your problem. Please do not hesitate to ask in case of any further doubts. Thanks for choosing health care magic to clear doubts on your health problems. Wishing you an early recovery. Dr Shareef.
