I Am Swelling On My Upper Left Arm Suddenly It Is Bigger And Become Red And Feel Pain After That On My Swelling Area I Have Pinned And Comes Out Pus.what May Be The Causes?

I am swelling on my upper left arm suddenly. It is bigger than the right and has become red and I have pain. There is also a place on the swollen area that I have put a pin in and pus is coming out. What could be causing this?

Answer

Might you have been bitten by something? Swelling with pus can be a sign of a localized infection. It could be from a spider or insect bite or it could be a fungal or bacterial infection. Boils, for instance, are due to a bacterial infection of a hair follice. If it hasn't resolved by now you should see your doctor to find out what's going on. Good luck!
