hello all...

just wondering about this...

on the left side of my neck my lymph node is swollen... and i believe its fighting an infection in some boil just above it...

i went to the dr's about 8 months back and she agreed with me...she said if i tried not to touch the boil it should go away in about 6 months....

of course now the boil still hasnt gone...because i have poked n touched it by accident... and it started to hurt recently which i have been using antiseptic cream on..

i have checked the symptoms for lymphoma and really i dont have any of them...i do have tiredness a lot but iv had that for years due to lack of sleep and not eating the right foods... and i have had since about december a rash... it was on arms, legs and elbows (some people thought it could be psoriasis) but on my arms and elbows it has completely gone and now theres just an odd few blotches on my legs that sometimes itch but its not bad

what would you think the best bet would be? keep putting antiseptic cream on the boil (since recently when iv put it on it had bought the boil out a bit... so hopefully that will clear)? or would i seriously need to see a dr again?
