Hello Doctor, unfortunately I am not able to take a picture and it won't show very well in a picture.

As for symptoms, I have no coughing, headaches, dizziness, altered eyesight or unwell feeling at all and I'm perfectly normal.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There is only pain on touch and itchiness once every little while in a day. Also, there is a little bit of a stiff touch to the swellings.
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 1 year ago.
They will have to be examined.
Folliculitis is possible.
Boils are possible.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

One other thing is that around these swellings there are small round lumps which are under the skin. Are these the lymph nodes or something else?
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 1 year ago.
This is often how staph infection spreads, particularly MRSA....so, have this looked at no later than the next 12 hours.
