Lump on the inner thigh, pus and blood discharge on squeezing, difficulty in walking. Remedy?

i have a lump on my inner thigh, it is about the size of a golf ball and very hard. i poked it with a sterile needle and some pus/ blood came out, but not really a lot. also right at the skin is a reddish/pink area that feels softer than the rest of it and sort of sunken in (like concave). I ve never had this before and it s sore to the touch. also it hurts when i walk because it rubs against my other leg.

ohh dear,
It seems like you are having cellulitis (infection of the soft tissues of the skin).I would strongly suggest not to do anything with it at home and seek urgent appointment with your GP to treat it properly.
Thanks very much,i hope this will help:)
