Hi and thanks for this query.
I am so sorry to hear about this bump. Hope we get to find solutions earlier than later.
This sounds like a big pimple or cellulitis
. The best course is to refrain fro squeezing or touching it as this may promote infections like cellulitis. Try some pain medications like Ibuprofen
. They will offer great pains relief and a reduction in the sie of the swelling. If fever
or bump increases in size or becomes softer than before, then please visit the hospital for antibiotic prescription.
Also, applying ice packs on this bump will reduces its swelling and painful nature.
Hope you ind this helpful and informative. If you need more answers, please feel free to contact us for me. I wish you well.
