What is this?

Does any one know what this could be? Sometimes if I'm fighting off a cold or seasonal allergy, I get swollen glands on the back of my head! They feel like little bumps or pimples and are tender to the touch. Anyone else experience anything like this?

  • Sounds like your lymph glands are enlarged. They get bigger any time your white blood cell is up, like when you're sick. My son got really sick when he was 3 and still gets those swollen glands now.

  • As kris says, just swollen lymph glands. It isn't anything to worry about, it just means they are fighting off whatever is trying to attack your body.
