Thank you for your question.
Is it swollen?
Is the skin over it red and inflamed?
Do you have any other medical problems?
Are you on any medications for anything at the moment?
Please let me know.
It it tender to touch?
Do you have a picture or two that you could attach here?
Thank you for the additional information.
It does seem a little inflamed/red which could mean a few things.
It could mean an infection under the skin or inflammation under the skin called as cellulitis for which you would require a course of an antibiotic.
Another possibility is that of high uric acid levels which can cause one to have such a problem as well.
Have you been seen for this and had these conditions ruled out by any chance?
Thank you for your response.
You must have your uric acid levels checked and must be seen to rule out cellulitis as you may require an antibiotic if that is the case and for high uric acid levels you will require medications to lower the uric acid levels and strong anti-inflammatory medications to reduce the redness that you are having.
