Hi,
It is possible that you had an infection, probably a viral one. If the rash looked like small dots, this is more likely the case. What is not consistent however, is that you have not improved after 2 weeks, which seems to take too long for a viral infection.
Other infections of a more chronic nature such as tuberculosis and sarcoidosis would then be a consideration. Typhoid fever may also present with lymph nodes. Then of course, there is HIV. Consider where you live, where you've been travelling, and behaviors that may be high risk for acquiring HIV.
Directly, the diving may not have contributed to this. Indirectly, the stress may induce a reduction in your body's natural resistance, and hence maybe partially to blame for obtaining any infection.
I suppose you've also thought about the possibility of lymphoma, since you wrote in this forum. The possibility does exist, the rash is not indicative but the night sweats is a bad sign.
Its best you see a doctor straightaway to get to the bottom of this.
