Large Bump on my Daughter's Leg... Is it Serious????
invokechange posted:
Below is a picture (it posted sideways) of a huge bump on my daughter's leg (the large bump is right under her swimsuit line on her right leg). It looks like a huge mosquito bite, but doesn't really itch. It is hard and hot. She doesn't feel pain or itching or anything.

Any idea what it is?

Also, I gave her Benadryl and it did not help at all.

Hi invokechange,

For some reason the picture you posted isn't displaying, but here is some information on possible causes of lumps and bumps on the skin. It could be the that the bump you describe is a type of cyst or the result of folliculitis. Making an appointment with your primary care physician to have her bump evaluated is the best way to determine the proper treatment if any is necessary. Please let us know how she is doing!

Best wishes,
