Red swollen hot to touch spots on right leg , about 4 inches round , last for a few days then bruise before going away I am 20 years old, female.?
Infection?: Red hot swollen spots make me think of infection, perhaps abscess or folliculitis, or sebaceous cysts. Abscesses don't usually go away by themselves but rather need to be drained.
