Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 9 months ago.

I would gargle with salt water

and take your temperature to check for fever

you can use tylenol for pain or fever

and see your doctor tomorrow to get a throat swab to check for throat infection

and examination of your neck lymph nodes and bumps on the top of your head.

would you like to upload clear photos of these bumps ?

you could have an enlarged neck reactive lymph nodes reacting to a throat infection which is very common.

Will do. Gargle and then get the first appointment available. See what happens. Thanks for the quick response!
