Extremely itchy rash on the back of my neck and a lump in my neck.

Hi there,

I'm a healthy 37 year old, and about four months ago, I developed an extremely itchy and burning rash on the back of my neck. My GP said it was dermatitis, and it cleared up quite quickly with a lotion called Novasone. Now the symptoms have appeared on my scalp, and I again used the Novasone, and things have resolved again, but in the meantime, I have discovered a small, hard, pea-sized lump on the base of my neck. Is this just a lymph node? I'm going to the GP tomorrow, but I will admit that I'm quite worried. Any response would be very appreciated and welcome.

Thanks in advance.
