Large swollen, painful bumps on the back of hairline, side of the neck, not oozy. History of staph. What could this be?
I have been getting large swollen bumps around the back of my hairline. They are painful, but don t drain and have healed. I now have a HUGE one on the side of my neck that is very painful, with a black dot in the middle. It won t drain, and there is no white around it. I have had staph previously, but it showed up with a white dot in the middle. This is feverish and very painful.
Thanks for choosing HCM.
You seem to be having an infected Sebaceous cyst now[ Blocked sweat gland with infection].
Please give hot water fomentation & take some analgesics. See a doctor ASAP.
