Plant juice, maybe: There are several things that could cause such a rash, especially if the rash is only on one side, not both sides. Shingles is a possibility. I'd expect clusters of small blisters to develop in that case. A contact rash from a plant or chemical, either alone or combined with sun exposure could cause this. Even bacterial infections, like impetigo or fungal infections, like ringworm, are possible. ...Read more

Lifting weights: I see that you are 21 years old. The most common reason for this in a presumably healthy and active person is resistance exercises with the upper extremity.

Stress and strain: Lifting weights can cause stress and strain in the shoulder, especially where the collar bone (clavicle) connects to the wing bone (scapula) in an area called the acromioclavicular joint. If it hurts, stop the activity, put ice on it and rest for a few day before resuming activity. If it doesn't get better, an injection may help. Surgery is rarely required. ...Read more

Lymph nodes in that area are very common. The thing you should remember is that you should keep an eye on it. Watch to see if it is getting larger and more importantly feel the area to see if more nodes are coming out.

The area under my right collar bone is numb and slightly swollen, nothing hurts but it's been this way for 3 days with no improvement I'm 17?
Watchit awhile: It is too early to tell if there is something real going on under your collar bone. You may have bumped into something unknowingly. So give it one or two weeks to evolve...it will likely go away if it is nothing serious. If it gets bigger over 2 weeks, then you will need medical examination to check it out, and get tests like X-rays which can look deeper under the skin. I wouldn't worry rite now. ...Read more
