How to treat painless red lump in inner thigh?

I have a lump on my inner right thigh, buried under stretch marks from previous pregnancies, in the area where it joins my hip. There is no head on the lump to suggest that it would be a boil or ingrown hair. It was the size of a peanut yesterday and today is as big as a grape, it is tender to the touch, but is not painful, and it is red in the area. I really dont think it is a boils how can I tell, and what else could it be?

Hi,Welcome to HCM.I studied your query.I understood Your concerns.
Based on facts of your query,Dear you seem to have a Growing Lymphadenitis in the Groin,as its growing in size lately.Seems to be from any infection in the draining area.
Treatment would-
depend on what is the cause of infection of your lymph gland.
It could be due to Soft Chancre,or could be due to infectious Mononucleosis,or could be from STD.
I would suggest You to consult Dermatologist to rule out other causes and to fix the cause by physical examination and evaluation of this lump.
Hope this reply would satisfy and would help you to plan treatment with the right consultant doctor.
