I have a red painful lump appear on a stretch mark on my hip. It happened about 6 months ago and the gp gave me a cream for it and within a week it disappeared. It s back! I have been extraordinarily tired the last 2-3 days and then it has appeared... Not sure if the tiredness is a coincidence??? Worried about staph infection....
