Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Do you notice any swelling, redness, warmth?

These signs will suggest possible bacterial infection or cellulitis.

Muscle strain is more likely cause if no swelling or redness.

Ok that is reassuring.

Then muscle strain is the likely cause.

You can try ibuprofen, apply warm compress and IcyHot ointment.

Avoid heavy lifting.

Best wishes
