I have a red patch (kinda pimple like and swollen) at the base of my neck by the shoulder. Also, a small lump/bump (which is tender to touch) right where jaw meets the neck. Very small bump. Back of neck is sore too. Thanks. 35yr. Old male.?

In brief: Red pimple

Sounds like a cyst or furuncle.
See your doc soon to get on antibiotics or have it treated.
