my daughter is 2 years old and has chicken pox when checking her spots she has a big hard lump behind the left ear and a smaller one behind the right ear, they are normal skin colour please can u tell me if she needs to seek medical advise x
These sound like Lymph nodes and may be enlarged due to the fact she had an infection.If you are concerned its always best to ask your doctors advice .With chicken pox try to make sure she doesnt scratch as that can leave scars ..Calamine lotion is good at stopping a lot of itching its has many cooling properties .
she is under the hospital at the min as she used to suffer with major ear infections there awfull arnt they normally shes very groggy and have fluid come out of ears neva had the lump tho thankyou for all ur advise it does really help
