I think you may be right. Go see a doctor. Topical antibiotics have a limited use, especially when treating MRSA. You have to remember that antibiotics are not antiseptics. They do not kill bacteria on contact. They have to incubate with the bacteria to prevent the bacteria from having babies. The only interaction a topical antibiotic has with bacteria is a thin surface area, and any "incubation" only lasts 20 minutes or so. You should have these pustules cultured, and be taking an oral antibiotic. You may also want to report your infection to the local health department. If the tattoo place is not sterilizing their instruments, you'll be helping countless others by reporting them.

Raised red sores on neck, is this a lipoma?

See a dermatologist

Lipoma
It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a dermatologist so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.

Have red sores under the skin all over the palm of my hands wat could they be?

Hand-dermatitis?

Hands
Red sores all over the palm of hands are more often caused by a contact allergy, hand-dermatitis (eczema), or infections such as scabies. The diagnosis is needed as the treatment will differ based on the cause. A certain virus can cause sores on the hands as a part of hand-foot-mouth disease. Please make an appointment to see your doctor, as early as possible.
