General Surgeon 's  Response
It looks like infection of skin,subcutaneous tissues of the upper limb called cellulitis.
I prescribe antibiotics,anti inflammatory medicine to my patients with similar complaints.
Affected limb should be elevated.
But,artery or vein can also be infected.
Please consult a surgeon and get a Colour doppler of the upperlimb for correct diagnosis.
Wish you good health and speedy recovery
