Red bump on the inner thigh, has become larger and harder with surrounding redness. What could it be?

Hi. A week ago, I discovered this small red bump about the size of a dime on my inner thigh. It looked as if it was getting smaller and then, for the past two days, its gotten larger and feels harder. The lump itself is now probably a little larger than a quarter. But the redness has probably spread to the size of a sand dollar. It hurts to touch it. The color hasn t changed. Maybe a possible spider bite?

Thanks for your query.You have a bump on inner side of thigh since a week which has gradually increased in size.This is a boil which is staphylococcal infection of the hair follicle . Please take some antibiotic like Ampicillin 500 mg twice along with some antiimflamatory drug like Tab Diclophenac 50 mg twice daily.It should subside in a week If it gets converted in to an abscess then it will have to be drained out by incising it.
