What is wrong with my neck? I have like a bump like under my chin where some people have double chins and it feels like im pulling a mussle and it really bothers me :<

This : This may be a lymphnode that is inflammed. Many things can cause this, possible something related to your teeth or mouth. These can sometimes be tender or achy. You will likely go away when the inflammation that caused it resolves. If it persists for more than 2-3 weeks, you should get it checked. ...Read more

I have a large painful bump under my chin next to the neck area- is this a tooth infection?

Painful Bump: Painful bumps should be examined by a physician - in this case, probably an ENT specialist. Painful swelling in this location can be an infection of the teeth, salivary glands, lymph nodes, congenital cysts, or deeper abscesses in the neck. Treatment may require drainage and antibiotics. Other malignancies including cancer always need to be ruled out as well. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I've given birth 2months ago, after showering i saw dry skin coming off my neck(under my chin) leaving white patch. It had itchy before this, not now?

Dry skin: I don't think giving birth has any connection to your chin problem. Probably it got irritated and you missed it. I would just apply a moisturizer on the white spot for as long as needed. ...Read more
