Hi Kimaree, Did you go back to your doctor or got another test done? I've had two staph infections on my face, called Cellulitis, which drained in my neck as well, on the right side. That what did it to me. Usually bacterial infections will do that, especially if it can be drained. The thing is, if it's a real bad infection, you don't want it to spread to other areas of the body. I really think you should go back to your doctor and see if antibiotics will help it, and keep it from coming back.
