I have a swollen lymph node in my neck, should I be concerned?

I have a swollen lymph node in my neck, it has been there since April (it is now Sept). It is small, well less than 2cm and probably less than 1cm. It is not painful and if it is growing it is growing very slowly. I had my primary physician look at it a few weeks ago and he did not seem concerned. I am not tired, I have my normal energy levels, I have not had any sudden weight loss, and no night sweats. The only thing that concerns me is that I have a rash on top of my feet and I am itchy in places. Should I be concerned?

If the lymph node is bothersome then you can get an ultrasound done for further confirmation..
If it further increase in size then FNAC can be done..
Although it does not seems concerning..

Hope this helps..

Itchy rashes can be due to Allergic reaction..
Apply Benadryl cream/ointment over the rashes and if the itching is too much take anti allergy medicine..
Do cool compresses..
