Customer Question

Hello! I have a red line wrapping around and down my bicep muscle. I can flex my bicep but extending my arm is when I feel pain and tension in my armpit, bicep, and top of forearm near elbow. I also have slight bruising under my arm on bicep near armpit. The pain is concentrated on this red line going down my arm. When I press on the line it is hard and inflamed like o cord under my skin. What is it?
