I dont have medical insurance otherwise I would have already gone to see a DR for this...ive had 2 swollen lymph nodes on the back right side of my right neck for about a month (one of them has been there for about 7 years but began to swell up more than ever once the new one right above it appeared) , I had no sign of infection. 2days ago i noticed 3 more on the left side..the one where my neck meets my skull feels more tender than the other 2 which seem to lie in the paratracheal area, and theyre all generally painful and cause headaches wheh they first appear (although the older ones' pain has gone away i still feel them but just not as swollen) I also noticed 2 raised itchy scaly and red areas on the top back of my head. Im wondering if i should be concerned or if all this could just be a result of a scalp infection even though ive had them over a month and am recently experiencing the new ones.
