Concerned about scab that won’t go away

A month ago I got a sore scab on the back of my neck, the lymph nodes either side became painful and swollen too and it was hard to move my neck for a number of days, eventually the nodes went down but then the nodes behind/under my ears popped up. Then the one in the side of my face popped up and had mostly gone back down, all the while this scabby area remains. I get annoyed with it because I can feel it there when I look down and find myself sometimes peeling off the dryer parts. There’s never bleeding as a result but under all the scanning just seems to be a soft lump on my skin.

I’m very fair skinned and live in New Zealand so naturally I’m starting to worry about skin cancer!
