What is this bumpy thing on my leg/thigh?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Like two days ago I woke up with this thing on my leg. It doesn't hurt but if I press on it itt burns. I tried to flatten it to out and it goes back. It feels bumpy like a worm but I don't think it is one. Anyone can help? How do get rid of it and what itt is? I put it in accidents because no idea how I got it. Its on the side of my thigh.

    That looks a bit wierd, have you seen your GP, is it a burn because that's what it looks like.

    Or have you dripped chemicals on it

      What a GP? It does look sort of like a burn I just have no idea how I got it since it's on a weird part of my thigh (the side). I researched and it kinda looks like a keloid scar but no idea.

    Hmm.  It does look strange.  I guess, if it were me, since it doesn't hurt I would watch it for awhile.  I wouldn't touch it or try to flatten it because that could aggravate it and keep it from "healing" on it's own.  If you live in a place where it takes quite a while to be seen by medical staff I guess I would make an appointment for that future time and cancel if it gets better then.  Good luck.

      No i don't think you are diabetic especially as your obviously younger than I first thought you were.

      Don't mess with it, keep it from being rubbed by clothing but definitely get it checked out asap
