Hey "Dash"

I am wondering if perhaps you have a pocket of infection in there. As strange as it sounds, I have had several infections start in the exact same place you are mentioning.

Sometimes, we have pockets of tissue that is especially fibrotic and because of it, it is more difficult for our immune systems (what's left of it) to hit that infection and do away with it. You may should be on a course of antibiotic.

I would very definately get to the doctor and contact you lymphedema therapist to let them know.

Let me know how you do!
