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

This is likely an inflamed superficial vein. Can occur due to the infection or even due to the blood clot formation. Cold compress, aspirin can be taken for relief. However you should see your doctor to check for any blood clot and infection.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
