Patient :I went to the doctor for a skin infection 2 weeks ago. I had a clogged hair follicle/pore on my forehead and the infection caused my lymph nodes to swell all over my neck. I feel much better after taking the antibiotic and the steroid pack, but I still have a small lump on the bone right behind my right ear. It is hard and probably the size of a pea. Is this something still related to my infection or should I be concerned about something else.
