Sudden bruise on inner thigh, knot in the center, green discoloration. Causes?

Hi I suddenly got an odd bruise on my inner thigh and I don t remember bumping into anything to cause it. It concerns me because its a quarter sized bruise that s only green around the circle with a bumpy knot in the middle that hurts when you touch it. What could it be..? Should I be concerned..?

It is an infection (cellulitis). antibiotics against staph, strept, pseudomonas etc e.g cloxacillin + a non-steroidal antiinflammatory will quickly resolve the symptoms. It occurred probably due to a tiny bridge on your skin and allowing entry of germ to affect the superficial skin layers.

Wish you the best
