  • If it starts to swell and get warm to the touch then I would worry. Otherwise it could just be ingrown hair follicle or maybe you hit it and don't remember. I've done that too many times to count! Anyhow if it gets warm and swells that is indicative of an infection and should be looked at by a physician.

  • call your doctors office and explain to them what it looks like and everything and tell them you are concerned and see what they suggest it sounds like it may be a blood clot or something but better to be safe then sorry and call them
