I went to a doctor about a lump on my neck. She said to try an antibiotic first because my lymphocyte levels were high. I took my last dose yesterday and nothing has changed the lump is still there and causing headaches, and now there is a reddish/bruising by the lump. I've been really tired like my energy is just gone and I've been itchy and I don't think it is related but I was told it could be the medicine but I've taking amoxicillin plenty of times and never had an issue plus I've been itchy for a few months. Is there anything I should look into or just keep waiting it out to see if anything changes?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If taking antibiotic has not controlled your symptoms, then consider revisiting your doctor/healthcare provider for re-examination and consider getting FNAC test done to look at the composition of the cells of the lump that you describe. Further treatment options would be suggested based on your examination findings and evaluation results. Avoid self-medication. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/healthcare provider and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
