Infected pimple on face and possible folliculitis on hairline. Could this trigger a swollen lymph node? My posterior cervical node is palpable.

In brief: Yes

These can cause a swollen lymph node although there are many other causes of swollen lymph nodes.
You need to seek advice from a physician either locally or on healthtap. I hope this helps and you feel better soon.
