I Have A Lump On The Back Of My Neck What Is That And It Itches
Cyst, abscess?: This is a common area for an ingrown hair or sweat gland which can get inflammed, swollen, and irritated. Rarely it could also be an infection. See your doctor it may be a cyst that needs to be removed or an infection that needs to be draind. In the meantime, use warm compresses and try to avoid squeezing or poking at it.See 3 more doctor answers
Depends on the cause: There are many things that could cause the skin to itch. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
My joints in my wrists, knees, feet, a bit in my neck/back, and are sorswollen. My skin itches. I have a lump behind my ear. Blood wk ok. What is it?
Aches: Could be a lot of things. The itch and lump may not be related which confuses matters. Would be useful to know what labs you've had that were normal. Viral illnesses can do weird things to adults, include make your joints swell and your skin itch. I'd be concerned if you were having fevers or losing weight unexpectedly.See 1 more doctor answer

I have 3 red lumps on my chin2 on bottom lip clear liquid comes out itches feels tight have got sore lump in throat under chin in centre hard 2 swallow?
Sounds infectious: Although it is very hard to determine what a rash is without seeing it, it sounds like you are describing a viral infection. The little lumps with clear fluid are probably blisters, and the lump under the chin is probably an enlarged lymph node from the rash. The most likely virus would be herpes simplex, which is the virus that causes recurrent cold sores. I suggest a visit to be seen for this.
My mom has a lump on the back on her neck that started off hard & painless. After a 2 weeks it's mushy & red. No itching, but feels sore. What is it?

My back itches and sometimes there's small bums. It also affects the back of my neck & scalp. I will scratch till my skin bleeds. Normal?
Dry skin - showers?: The most common cause is dryness of the skin precipitated by showers. After each shower, rub lotion such as Cetaphil or Aveena on back and legs to moisturize skin. If this doesn't resolve the problem within two weeks, consult a dermatologist.

It: It sounds like you could be dealing with something called herpes zoster or shingles. This is a rash that can be painful and can appear like red blisters on the skin. It is caused by a reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus, the virus that causes chickenpox. Otherwise you could be dealing with a dermatitis or infectious process. It is very difficult to say without actually seeing the lesions in question. Please see your doctor right away. Best of luck.
Live in mid-fl. In yard clearing brush when bit on back of neck. After 24 hrs, swelling as big as silver dollar, still itches. Am anaphylaxic?
Likely not: It looks like you have local reaction to some insect bites. I don't see you mention about problems breathing, diffused rashes or hives, and abdominal pain other GI symptoms so you don't have anaphylaxis. The bite site can last for a few days. Try warm compress. If it get worse, you might have cellulitis and need to be seen by a physician.See 2 more doctor answers
Sometimes I get a small lump on back right of my right Popliteal Fossa (right at the bend at the back of my right leg). It's painless but itches a bit?
Lump directly behind left ear lobe. Itches and full of pus. Popped it 5 times, but is back the next day. Sometimes hard, sometimes squishy.
Cyst or lymph node: Either you have a lymph node or more likely an infected sebaceous cyst. Once it pops it will continue to pop. You can try warm compress and meticulous cleaning but it will recur soon or years later. Treatment for the cyst requires cutting it out. It can be done in the office. A general surgeon will have experience with this also plastics and ENT.

From some days I am getting pain and itching in throat frequently. Small lumps are appearing and disappearing behind ears. Mucus is in nose to throat?
Dr. Can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). Throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin can help decrease throat pain.
After I ate something this morning the back of my throat was feeling weird so I checked with a flashlight and there bumps they don't hurt its itches.
Allergic?: Are you old enough to ask question on this site?
I have sinus and when the weather changes from hot to cold the back of my throat itches. Why and any solutions?
Allergies?: You are describing a seasonal change that causes mainly throat irritation from your report. This could be seasonal allergy irritation of the throat, but could also be due to the change in temperature. The itchiness would probably respond to an otc allergy medication. For more information, you need to see md and give more details on symptoms. An exam and possibly allergy testing would be indicated.
Eustachian tube: You may have some bacteria in the eustachian tube area. Get a rx for Peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate) from your dentist. This is a liquid that you can have soak (not swish) in you mouth to disable bacteria and assist in the healing of irritated and sore tissue. The nih results was that this solution will soak into the tissue and time release over the next 12 hours.
When I eat hazelnuts the back of my throat itches or swells up a bit that all. Any home treatments?
Don't eat them: You might have oral allergy syndrome. This occurs when allergens in some raw fruits, vegetables & tree nuts resemble allergens in pollen - generally birch tree & ragweed. The resemblance and the consequent symptoms of itchy mouth & throat tickle disappear with sufficient heating of the food. Neither home nor medical cures work. See an allergist to help sort this out from true hazelnut allergy.See 1 more doctor answer
