Does it pain when you press on the lump?
If there is no pain, this is neither a trauma or an infection.
What you probably have is congealed hyaluronic acid - that means that the hyaluronic acid has collected to form the firm lump.
Please wait for at least 1 week from the last time you had the injection to dissolve them. Apply a cold pack on the area for 9-90 minutes every 3 hours.
If the lump remains, please consult your doctor - you will need more injections into the site to dissolve the hyaluronidase.
Yes, please try applying a cold pack for 1 week - it should dissolve to a great extent.
If it is still there after 1 week, please consult your doctor.
If there is no pain,you do not need anti-inflammatories.
If it has not gone after 1 week, it means that th filler has clumped and you may need another injection to dissolve it.
You are welcome.
