Hi XXXXXXX
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
The lesion as appears in the photograph seems to be due to some inflammatory cause. It can be a local infection or an insect bite. Pain indicates inflammation as is also evident by surrounding congested veins.
It needs to be evaluated by a dermatologist and good prescription antibiotics to control the problem.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!

I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
