Brown, itchy lump on inner thigh. Had a string like brownish thing attached to the thigh that formed into a lump. How can I cure it?

I have a brown, itchy bump on my inner thigh. About a month or so ago I saw a long, brown shaped thing (like a worm with one end attached) attached to my inner thigh. I tried to pull it off my leg, but was scared to because I didn t know what it was. Later it was gone, but I was left with this brown bump. I have no idea what it is or how to get rid of it!!

Since the lesion was looking as a worm it could be Larvamigrans.I would advise you to take T.Albendazole400mg twice daily for 3 days.Report to me later if there is no improvement.It might resolve with cyotherapy if not responding to oral medication.
