I was prescribed Acyclovir, and I took this for two weeks and the rash went away, but a swollen mass
appeared on the back ofthe right side of my neck
, similar to a swollen lymph node. The mass
was a soft tissue mass, and it occurred about 2 in below the base of my head and just along the vertebral column. I saw two ENTs, each with conflicting answers: it is and isn't a lymph node. Both put me on antibiotics and told me to follow up with a new doctor.
