THE RASH FOR A FEW MONTHS OFF AND ON...THE LUMP RECENTLY
Expert:  Family Physician replied 8 years ago.
There are a number of possible explanations for this lump, my first thought would be an enlarged lymph node related to some infection causing the rash or from the rash becomming secondarily infected.

The other possibility is some type of growth or tumor (either benign or malignant) that would need to be removed.

In either case - an examination by a physician is critical for a diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
