Hi I have swelling on bot sides of the back of my head every once and a while out of nowher its kind to longish swelling that gets puffy on both sides. Sometimes it goes away by itself, sometimes ill drink ginger tea and then it will go away almost instantly.

My eyes have been red lately too, I went to the doctor and she said I have dry eyes but I am in front of the computer all day so I dont know if that has anything to do with it. Any help would be awsome. Thanks.

Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Mastoiditis should be looked for with this presentation. It could also be be posterior cervical lymphadenopathy. The lymph nodes should be properly examined and the head and neck should be screened visually for any focus of infection or inflammation in the vicinity.

Wishing you best of health
