Reason for soreness in the thigh?

Hi - I have developed a soreness that starts at the left side and goes across to the inner thigh area.It hurts when I rub this area. Started this morning. At first I thought it was just a sore muscle from some walking I did this morning. Thank you for your help. Karen

You havenot mentioned your age, any other disease like Diabeties. If reddness with Burning and local temperature of that area is raised it might be a sort of subcutaneous infection called Cellulitis. But need not to worry. very difficult to reach any diagnosis without check up. Fix appointment with some general surgeon. It witth be better. thanks
