I often get a red bump on my left buttock. Always near the same spot. It's hard and very itchy. Could it be something in my blood?

Recurrent skin bump: Any thing in your blood would be more generalized and occur over a larger surface. This recurrent bump may be an inclusion cyst or ingrown hair or blocked pore. If it is tender, or fluctuant it may need to be drained or surgically removed. I recommend seeing a dermatologist when the bump is present. ...Read more

I have just a large red lump on my leg, hard to the touch and very itchy, and very large. Swollen and red. Should I be alarmed?

Have it seen: It is difficult to diagnose issues with the skin without having them seen by a physician. As a "very large, swollen, red lump" is not normal on the leg it would be a good idea to have a physician look at it.
