Red painful lump on stretch mark on hip. Treated with medication, again reappeared. Staph infection?
I have a red painful lump appear on a stretch mark on my hip. It happened about 6 months ago and the gp gave me a cream for it and within a week it disappeared. It s back! I have been extraordinarily tired the last 2-3 days and then it has appeared... Not sure if the tiredness is a coincidence??? Worried about staph infection....
Welcome to HCM,
It seems that due to itching orsome friction on stretch nark, there is some infection producing some boil or small abscess.
Go for antibiotic medicine and apply antibiotic cream after consulting your doctor.
Ok and bye.
