Why Does The Thigh Suddenly Have A Small Lump That Feels Itchy And Painful?
, I want to ask. My thigh suddenly had a small lump, and every time it felt like it was pricked by a thorn, and it felt itchy too. I think there’s a thorn inside, I’ve tried removing it with hot water steam. But to no avail, I still felt like there was a thorn in it and itchy around the lump.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of a painful, itchy lump in the thigh area can indicate the following conditions:
Skin infections, for example due to: folliculitis (hair root infection) Acne (inflammation of the pilosebaceous glands) Herpes zoster (chicken pox, occurs due to reactivation of the virus that causes chickenpox) Irritant contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin due to contact with irritative substances) Insect bites or other animals Inflammation skin due to other causes, for example pricked or thorns, burns, etc. It is very difficult to actually determine the originator of your complaint without checking the lump directly. Therefore, before the complaint spreads, you should check yourself directly to the doctor or dermatologist. Depending on the cause, these lumps can be handled by doctors giving drugs, surgery, or other medical measures. Now, to help resolve your complaint, try the following efforts:
Do not hold the lump with dirty hands. Compress with warm water in the painful area. Clean bath, use also clean and not tight pants. Do not exchange towels or pants with other people.
