It could be the volt: I would have expected the voltarel to have been absorbed but it is possible it is still there in one form or another. It may have caused a hematoma which was there initially and now has fibrosis in it. You can see your physician to evaluate this. You may need a biopsy. The numbness may be related to nerve injury. ...Read more

Vaccines: A lump under the skin is not unusual after a vaccination. The injection is given into the muscle tissue to get the right antibody response.

Hard lump under skin after boil on my face. Its not that large rather hard. Doctor used blade to actually pop it but hard lump is still present. When I pressed very hard slight amount of liquid did came out for 2-3 days but not now.

Best wishes. ...Read more
