    Any area that is swollen and painful to touch, and is hot, can be the sign of an infection. It could be a spider bite etc...

     

    you need to see a doctor.  Really watch for any red streaks going up the leg, or any color.  That is very dangerous and needs to be seen at the ER.

     

     

    Don't mess around with this

    Hello Spicko, I am not a Dr. but I did work as a medical assistant for many years before becoming disabaled and this could be a VERY serious condition! Such as a clot in your leg or calf. You should call your Dr. as soon as possible and have this checked out. If u don't have a Dr. that u see regularly then got to a walk in clinic or the ER. It's better to be safe that sorry! Hope this helps and good luck to u!
