hi,thanks for query.No,this is not a sign of lymphoma.the pain that you are having could be due to some gastric discomfort or stimulant effect of alcohol.At times alcohol can lead to this.Rash under arm pit,could be due to some form of allergy or skin fungal infection.Please get your self examined by your doctor and get proper diagnosis done.He may ask for some blood tests like blood counts,blood sugar and other reports as per the need.
wishing you good health.

Hi,Falicia,
Thanks for query,
Forget about lymphoma.
You might have enlarge lymph node due to some infection in surrounded area like your neck,head,ears.
it has no relation with alcohol so do not increase the dose of alcohol !
There is possibility of having fungal infection in your armpit area.
Apply antifungal cream and keep the part dry and well ventilated.
You can take tab. Flucanozole orally.
Ok and bye.
