Can hives cause lumps at the back of the neck?

Lumps

Hives
They don't usually leave a lump. Hives itch a lot and are raised. Sometimes a chemical on the label of a shirt could trigeer them there or left over aftershave, shampoo. If they persist check with a skin doctor.

Dr. Bac X. Nguyen answered:

Why might someone have lumps in the back of neck?

Cysts and lymphnodes

Open-uri20121012-21203-1yih4qy
We have only few glands in the back of neck and swelling/lumps you feel are often from sebaceous cyst, which if infected can cause pain and may look like the one in picture here. lymphnodes are typically small and mobile but can get larger and sore if there is infection near-by the area. If it is bothering you, get it checked. Boil can be lanced and may need antibiotic. consult doc. Good luck

What might lead to 2 big lumps on 7year olds neck?

Monitoring Centers

Neck_pain
Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph Nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well
