I'm a 27 year old female in good health and I've suddenly

Customer Question

Hello! I'm a 27 year old female in good health and I've suddenly got three large swollen areas on my right leg. They are red, hard and painful, but I don't remember hurting myself in the last few days. Is this something I should be concerned about?
JA: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?
Customer: Since yesterday. I've tried resting last night with legs slightly elevated, and the swelling went down a little bit, but my calves are both very sore and get tight if I rest too long. I've been doing a lot of hiking and I am away from home and my regular doctor.
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: No, I can't think of anything else

Can you send me a photo?

Is it lump/painful nodules?

Where exactly are those?

There are three large swollen red patches on my right leg. While both legs are sore from hiking, the swollen areas are more painful. I will try to send a picture of all three.

Is it swollen?

Any insect bite?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
swollen and hard to the touch. I've had insect bite reactions before and they didn't hurt like this. These don't itch or have a center "bite spot".
Expert:  Khizra Naz replied 10 days ago.

You should go to hospital, get bloods and ultrasound done to rule out possibility of clot. This can be a sign of clot as well.

Is that something that can wait until I'm back in my home-town on Monday, or do I really need to get it done tomorrow?
Expert:  Khizra Naz replied 10 days ago.

You should do it today, it is a serious condition.
