I have a solid dime sized red lump on my leg was very sore. Thought it was an ingrown hair so I popped it and it bled a little but is now draining clear liquid...

In brief: It may be healing

or it may be getting infected.
If it stops draining, or continues to drain but the liquid turns thick yellow or white, or redness increases in size, or pain or heat increases, go see a healthcare provider to get treated for infection. Otherwise warm compresses to the area 2-3x daily may help reduce it quickly. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.
