Lumps/Acne on neck and closer to hairline


I have been to countless dermatologists to get treatment for acne. My mouth and chin area is always dark and has fine pimples when i shave. I also have these lumps at the back of my neck and close to hairline. I have completed a course of Roaccutan as the dermatologist was convinced it would solve this problem. After completing the course, my facial skin improved by the chin and neck area was still the same. The dermatologist use to them administer this painful cortisone injections in my chin and neck but they worked temporarily. That dermatologist mentioned something about scarring and extra layer of skin on my head but due to his archaic ways i decided to find someone else.. The next dermatologist did a mini biopsy on my chin and said i had a mite in my skin and gave me tablets to take. This did not work.. Recently my aunt massaged by neck as she said these lumps were stress nots.. After a few days these lumps were inflames and started to pain.. I am confused and tired of always going to specialists who cant give me propert answers.. After reading this site I felt it might be related to lymph nodes. I am unsure whether I am wasting my time with the dermatologists who charge an arm and a leg just for consultation and then dont even solve my problem. Please help!

I am of indian origin and eat a lot of curries. I am also overweight and have a high alergy count.
