I NOTICED IT A COUPLE NIGHTS AGO

NO FEVER

ITS KIND OF HARD AND IT MOVES

PINKISH IN COLOR

Thanks for information.

Going through all description it looks that this hard ,pinkish swelling can be -

-A Boil in arm pit.

-An enlarged lymph node.

Looking at the consistency & movability it may be a boil.

You should do following to have relief in it-

-Start taking an analgesic & anti inflammatory drug like advil or aleeve.

-Take a broad spectrum antibiotic on prescription.

-Check the area of breast or arm or neck for presence of any other such node .

-Apply a local antibiotic ointment like neosporin over it.


Hope all this will help you.

With best wishes.
