Sore lump by ear

For the last few days i have had some weird things going on. The area just before my right ear, where the jaw joint is, is sore to the touch with a slight raised lump. I additionally have a hard sore bump behind the same ear, as well as feel as if my gland is slightly swollen and sore. I have had headaches consistently, as well as an area on the right side of my scalp that feels sore to the touch,. with what looks like a slight rash.I did have some highlights put in my hair over a week ago, at an Aveda salon, but i didn't notice any issues with a chemical burn or allergic reaction in the days that followed. I'm concerned because i'm supposed to be traveling on the 25th of this month. Does anyone have any ideas? I do not have health insurance, nor a lot of money to go to a doctor..please help!!!
