Hi Randy Fong .. Thanks for the question.

A pus-filled lump on your back of the neck can be caused by:

Acne / pimples - pimples form due to increased activity of the oil glands. In addition to the face, acne can also appear on the neck, chest, back, and other parts that contain lots of oil glands. Boils / boils - occur due to a bacterial infection of the skin, the symptoms are lumps that can be painful, red, feel warm, filled with pus Carbuncle - a collection of several boils called carbuncle folliculitis - a bacterial infection of the hair follicles This is generally harmless and can be completely treated. If you feel the lumps are getting more and more, feel pain, the lump is enlarged, there is fever, it does not get better in 2 weeks or more then you can see a doctor. The doctor will carry out an examination directly so that the diagnosis can be known and given the right treatment.

Apart from that you can do:

Avoid touching or scratching or rubbing the back of your neck. Keep your body clean, avoid moisture, avoid excessive sweating. If there is fever and pain, you can take paracetamol according to the dosage stated.
