I noticed it on Saturday but it was under the skin like a spot but it got bigger over the last few days... it’s only sore when u touch it

Have you used any hair dye?

I also have a hard lump under the skin top on my jaw line by my ear lobe

Thanks for the details

This look like a folliculitis

The lump around ear lobe is an enlarged lymph node due to the head problem

You need to use an anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen and an antibiotic like Co-Amoxiclav or Flucloxacillin

This will settle in a week approximately

Please do let me know if you have any other question
