Folliculitis: Folliculitis or infection of the hair follicle is probably the case. The lymph glands enlargement can be related to the folliculitis. See your pmd to have it examined and treated.

See a physician.: Your symptoms could be from any of a number of things. There is no way for anyone at healthtap to render a diagnosis. The best and smartest thing to do is to be seen by your primary physician so an appropriate work-up can be done. If you have no primary physician then a trip to an urgent care would be reasonable.
