Have red pimples and pus filled bump on back of neck. Am I having any infection?

I have a red almost pimple like bump on the back of my neck behind the ear, it almost looks like a spider bite . There s a few very small bumps within the big bump with what looks like puss, it looks infected and scaling. About an inch down from where that is I have a small bump under the skin, almost cist like, I m wondering if maybe it has any correlation to the infection.

Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

Yes, the boils you have could probably be due to infection.

Expressing the pus and debris from the boil after breaking it is definitive treatment.Also you may have to be placed on antibiotics to cure the infection and prevent recurrences.

Wish you god health.
