Thanks for the query,
The rash can be erysipella,

It is a bacterial infection of superficial lymphatics.

Infection from lymphatics goes to lymph nodes and hence causes pain and swelling.

You may require treatment with oral antibiotics.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis and treatment.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
