Thank you for your question,
It has been there for several weeks now, clear signs of infection.
you need to get it evaluated, swab test may be needed to identify the organism causing this.
If you have fever, lower abdominal or back pain this this needs ASAP evaluation as this indicates spreading of infection deep into the tissues including uterus and blood.
Let me know if you have questions.
