Dear patient You have got infection around your hip area. Localised tender area that is hot to touch indicates infection. Are you having fever? If yes it also add to Infection. I would advise for local ultrasound to assess collection. Also blood investigation with total and differential leukocyte counts needs to be done. Start tab augmentin 625 mg thrice a day with tab levoflox 500mg once a day for 7 days. This will relieve you of pain and inflammation. All the best.
