Unhappy Desperate for help! Huge lump on JUGULAR!!....

Ok, I'm 17 and I'm 5'5. I have really bad acne on my back that never seem's to go away. I wish I could post pictures but last post I did it was removed.

I have lump on the side of my neck (left) pretty big, Red and the tip of it is squishy and behind it seems a little hard. Feels like a small egg in my neck. Redness, hurts if rubbed siletly. Someone said I needed to go to the doctor's and they have to cut it open to get the fluid out I'm not sure if thats right.

I also have this marble sized thing between my eyes, strait in the middle of my eyebrows acutally. It's marble size, and it's very smooth. Redness on it too.

Please can someone tell me what's going on??

Sounds like cystic acne. Give those lumps a few days to see if they'll go away on their own. If not (or if you start having them more frequently), you might want to see if a dermatologist can help you out.

Re: Desperate for help! Huge lump on JUGULAR!!....

i would at the very least have your doc evaluate that lump that you stated was on your jugular?this 'could' possibly be some sort of obstruction such as a blood clot type thing?any "lump" you see or feel over a blood vessel area espescially if it is red and swollen should just be checked out.it could just be what index mentioned,in both areas,BUT,when it comes to something that appears to be on or in any vein or artery,it just needs evaluating to rule out other more serious issues.does that red/lump area on the neck feel hot at all or hotter than the surrounding area?

Re: Desperate for help! Huge lump on JUGULAR!!....

You might be right about the acne. The lump is still there. It's been there a total of 4 days. It's starting to feel hard behind and around it, but the tip of it it's squishy like pus inside of it. I really really don't wanna go to the doctor's and get it cut open, drain out and have to be on med's for 2 weeks. I can live with the Antibiotics but i don't want them cutting my neck open!!

Personally, I'd give it a few more days.

Re: Desperate for help! Huge lump on JUGULAR!!....

if this is building to a head,try some moist/heat compresses on it,it will help it come to a head faster and hopefully will drain on its own.just take a wash cloth and run it under some hot water,but okay to the touch?not too hot.then just keep placing them over that area off and on during the day.it may help it drain faster.just do not use an actual heating pad on your neck.not over the particular are you have this anyways.there is something about the actual moist heat that works this out,so you do need the moist heat thing.i know this works really well for boils so it may work for this,hopefully.it is worth a try anyways.good luck,and please keep us posted.
