Hello. I am a female teenager. For the past 2 months, I have had two red patches on either side of my neck ( about where the lymph nodes are, I believe). They are itchy, but not swollen or raised. Sometimes, they get lighter and are hard to see but keep coming back.

Does anyone have any idea what this could be? I just started researching & can't find anything!!! The closest thing I can find online is lymphoma and hodgkin's disease which are both really bad. however, my symtoms dont totally fit since the area is not actually SWOLLEN, just red, and i dont have any other symptoms.

any idea?
