Painful lump under nipple, poison ivy rash on neck, face. Cyst or irritated gland?

H i, im a 36 year old male. I have a tiny painful bump umder my right nipple . Im battling what seams to be a poison ivy rash on my neck and face. It has only been two days but am concerned,about it. I dont have health insurance and would like to not have to see a doctor. It is something to worry about. Not worried abojt cance but maybe a cist? Could it just be an irritated gland? it ok to wait a week or two to see if it goes away. There are no other symtoms expect them lump and pain. It is about size of half a pea maybe. Thanks!

1. without general examination it is not accurate to comment on the subject, because sometimes source is some where else also like in chest wall muscles,ribs, or spine. If you think it is a cyst, or a irritated gland it will require a doctor's examination and prescription drugs or surgical intervention.
2. It is advisable always to see a doctor if you discover a breast lump, who might do simple fine needle aspiration with syringe to confirm whether it is harmful or harmless (if required).
