hi i am dr manoj...
its a bit difficult to comment on the issue without examination but the kind of symptoms you are giving it may be morphea, the condition in which the tissue underneath the skin hardens, it may become tender as well...or a simple diagnosis would be a subtle infection of the skin tissues,subtle cellulitis...i recommend you to get yourself examined as early as possible...till then you can apply plain antibiotic cream twice daily and hot water fomentation...dont worry
