I have developed a red bump the size of a pea on my thigh. Hurts when touched. What is it?
Does not itch.

Thrombophlebitis: Most of these palpable lumps that are tender to the touch in the thighs and legs are varicose veins that get inflamed and sometimes form clots. Since these veins are palpable, they are superficial veins. Superficial vein thrombophlebitis will improve over time with nonsteroidal antiinflammatory agents like ibuprofen, motrin and advil. If it does not improve schedule a duplex vein scan to confirm. ...Read more

Right inner thigh to knee is sore feeling and makes me limp when I walk. Theres also a red wide line from inner thigh to knee that hurts when touched?

Have that evaluated: This "line" in particular may be what's referred to as lymphangitis, inflammation of the lymph drainage tract that can be related to an infection. Alternatively, it could represent inflammation of a blood vessel related to a blood clot. Again, I would encourage you to be seen sooner rather than later as this could be a sign of something more serious. ...Read more
