Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
Is the lump painful?
sometimes the area underneath the lump and above the rash is itchy though...
just a swollen part
any more questions?
This may be a reaction from a local inflammatory response
The rash may cause this
Are you there?
yeah i figured the rash was the catalyst for the swelling, the clump of white blood cells are trying to fight something... that is why its there
I just don't know what the rash is
Thats likely correct
Does the rash itch?
it would probably be pretty painful to scratch it
like chicken skin
only every single little bump is also a mini scab thing
Okay, then you need to have it examined, by a dermatologist, you may require prescription cream to treat it
Please respond if you can see my replies
If you don't reply I will assume there is a system problem
Are you having computer problems?
no, I just got a phone call so i was distracted
will the lymph nodes be able to heal it?
The lymph nodes do not heal skin, , it may be able to heal on its own, but that is not associated with the lymph node
is the swelling from the lymph node or from teh scab?
the whole side of my neck is swollen
The swelling is likely from the scab
It may cause local inflammation and therefore also cause the node to swell
hmm what is local inflammation?
inflammation in a small area
also, there is another rash that developed underneath my clavicle near my left shoulder. It is a different looking rash than the one on my neck
That rash is likely unrelated
what causes rashes?
allergic reactions, infections, and irritation are some common causes
Do you know how long it might take to heal on its own?
It may take days to weeks
they aren't contagious or anything right?
No, they are not contagious
is it normal for areas that are swelling to itch?
are there any over-the-counter medicines that could help? Maybe like coritozone/anti-itch creams?
That is normal, they may itch, but they also may not
yes, i asked two questions and you only answer the first...
so i was just waiting
Cortisone cream may help with itching and swelling
well the rash isn't anything serious so basically i shouldn't worry about it
its just so random
I'm sorry, I am not sure what you are asking in your last reply
uhm, basically... this rash isn't anything too serious right?
It likely is not, but only a physical exam can make sure of that, without seeing it and examining it it is impossible to be sure
right, okay. If it doesn't go away in the next 2 weeks i'll go get it checked. Thanks for your help!
You're very welcome
