Thank you for the question.
Need to be clear, have you checked your condition to the doctor and diagnosed with folliculitis?
A lump near the back of the neck that feels painful is one of them can be caused by folliculitis. But that's not all, a lump like yours may also occur due to other triggers, such as acne, lymphadenitis, shingles, being bitten by insects, benign or malignant tumors, skin tags, hyperkeratosis, and so on.
Folliculitis itself is inflammation of the hair root which is the most common cause of infection. Typically, a lump due to folliculitis, besides being painful, is also reddish and felt warm when touched. If the cause is true of infection, a lump due to folliculitis can also contain pus that can rupture at any time.
If you have never checked your condition to the doctor, it is better not to conclude too early. Check with your doctor or dermatologist first to be identified, is it true that the lump appeared due to folliculitis, or there are other triggers. If true folliculitis, several types of drugs to surgery can be recommended by doctors to overcome them. If it turns out to be another cause, of course the handling could be different.
In the meantime, you should never over-manipulate any lumps that appear, including squeezing or gouging them out. If the lump feels painful, you can first compress the lump with warm water. Do not forget, improve your personal hygiene and do not carelessly give medication to the lumps that appear without doctor's advice.
Hope this helps ...
