Brief Answer: Painful lumps-skin/lymphnodes infections... Detailed Answer: Hi, You are saying to have taken antibiotic and diflucan since 12/25 and steroid. The painful lumps that appeared in your right chest could be related to: - infection of local lymph-nodes - skin infection most probably due to antibiotic intake. I'd suggest to get checked by a physician/dermatologist to determine the right diagnosis and if it might need surgical drainage. You can upload a photo of your painful lump to me to assist you further! Just click on the right bottom button! Thank you! Dr.Alba
