Eruption of lumps on various body parts postpartum, lumps increasing in size. What is the cause and treatment?

my wife is now 5 months post partum, and since the pregnancy she has had several lumps appear on different parts of her body. She has one on her wrist that is hard and has been growing larger over the past months. And she also has two mushy lumps as well; one is at the base of her throat , at the center of her collarbone where that v is; and another one she just discovered around her ankle. Any thoughts on cause or treatment?

Hi, thanks for using HCM.

Swelling as you have mentioned sites, I can think of two possible conditions, swelling from fat cells or lymphnodes swelling, examination helps in differentiating condition. So better to consult doctor for examination and further management.
