User Profile
Hello Im 20 yo female and have a lump on left side of neck and another higher up on my collar bone. Along with this I developed this weird rash all on my left side. On the back of my neck there are bumps that have a sharp burning pain. Neck stiffness. Weight gain eventhough i eat healthy. When I press on my right quadrant area there feels to be a ball and I get nauseated right away. Seems like a lot but I have no clue what is going on and maybe you can give me some pointers.

Hello and welcome to e health forum.

The description of the lumps in the neck, appear to be lymph nodes, which could be enlarged due to inflammation.

The rash and the bumps on the back of the neck, could be due to folliculitis or cellulitis.

You might benefit by consulting a doctor , for examination of your lesions, which might need treatment with a course of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medications.
