Purplish Hard Lumps On The Body?
Good evening, I am a 19-year-old woman, I want to ask about a few months ago on my left side buttocks appear small lumps and do not hurt, but about 2 weeks ago the lump was slightly enlarged and felt serial pain when pressed, the lump was rather hard and colored purple, what do you think it is? And what is the cause? Does eating affect it too? Thank you
Lumps that appear in the buttocks area can be caused due to the following factors:
Skintag / excess skin growth
It is difficult to ascertain the cause without conducting a direct examination. If the lump gets bigger or more painful, I suggest that you see a doctor directly so that further tests can be done to ascertain the cause of the lump. If needed, your doctor can provide you with the right treatment both with drugs and surgery.
While waiting to see a doctor, you can do the following tips:
Use clothes and underwear that are comfortable and not tight
Use a soft pillow when sitting
Don't squeeze the bump
Keep the bump area clean, you can use antibacterial soap if necessary
Hope it helps you,
