lt;p>Customer,</p><p> </p><p>This is the area where there are a number of lymph nodes which drain the surrunding areas. So an infection in the surrounding area can cause this swelling. Yes, an ingrown hair which is infected can cause it but it is unlikely that a mosquito bite will. If you have any vaginal infections or any cuts or bruises in the upper thighs , these could also be the cause of this swelling. You need to consult a doctor for a checkup. Meanwhile, please take Ibuprofen, 200mg thrice daily after food and apply a warm pack on the swelling for 10 minutes twice a day.</p><p> </p><p>I hope this helps. </p><p>Let me know if you need more input.
