Moving her arm?: Is she moving her arm? If not she needs to be reevaluated.

If she is moving her arm normally I would ice the lump and give her some OTC ibuprophen or tylenol (acetaminophen) for the pain and wait and see if anything changes. ...Read more

Bitten by unknown insect. Redness and swelling to forarm. Marked with pen and doubled in size over 36hrs. Taking non drowsy antihistamines and icing?

Infection is a possible delayed complication. If you develop a boil, a discolored blister, fever, increasing pain, or other concerning signs, see a physician for an exam. ...Read more

? contusion: Most often a transient lump is the result of trauma/an injury or contusion, even if you can't recall something like that happening. The injured tissues swell, or there is a broken blood or lymph vessel that causes a lump. It is quite reassuring that it essentially disappeared so quickly. It is not surprising that a small focus can still be felt. You can watch this. ...Read more
