Hi
The swelling might have caused due to unknown insect bite or some irritation.The lump could be due to induration.
Apply warm pack.
I prescribe anti inflammatory tablet to my patients with similar complaints.
Depending on the case,I add Antibiotic like Amoxycillin 500mg to my patients to prevent infection.
Nothing to worry.It will come down.
