Recurring Lumps, Painful To Touch, Discolored

Well, I've had these lumps appearing for a while. First they appeared near my groin, but more of my inner thigh. They were about marble sized. They've since gone away, but they've left what look like bruises that won't go away. Now I've been getting lumps under my right arm. The first one only lasted a few days, and I assumed it was because I had just been getting over a cold. Now, weeks later, two new ones have appeared, and they're painful to the touch. One is discolored now-red

Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi,

It seems that you may be having bacterial infection...may be pyoderma, lymphadenitis or soft tissue infection.

You consult dermatologist and have blood tests to rule out HIV,DM,other immunocompromised conditions or internal diseases.

Antibiotics may be taken for 2 to 3 weeks. nti inflammatory drugs maybe taken to reduce inflammation and pain. If there is internal cause found, treatment should be taken.

Improve immunity with immunoboosters. Improve hygiene. Take dettol liquid bath. You may be alright and new lesions may be prevented.

I hope you got my answer.

Thanks.
