Strange spot, lump on leg Help??

I've got this weird lump on my left leg, it's quite red, it did have pus but it popped earlier, it's really red in the middle but the redness has spread, it's hard underneath the area, it's swollen but only a little bit and it's quite hot

I'm not on any meds at the moment, this has happened since I have come off them, I have been having issue since my doctor took my off Aza, Please someone tell me I'm not flaring again as I have only been off meds for 2 months now and I don't want to have to go back on them although I am starting to think I should make a doctors appointment again and ask for something

Anyone have any ideas??

Sorry you're dealing with this. You needs to call the doctor IMO.
It could be erthema nodosum.

Can you take a picture of it? Where is it on your leg? Is this the first one that you noticed?

It's near the back of my leg on the left hand side of my left leg, this isn't the first one but it's the WORST one I've had, I have scars from the other ones

This ISN'T my leg but it looks a bit like this but it has got a bit more pus, and it's a lot more red.

Redness , heat & swelling are signs of infection. Go get it looked at. Good luck.

Thanks Cross-stitch gal I'm feeling a bit better I didn't manage to go to the doctors because apparently they were "all booked up" The strange lump is turning purple but it's healing, I know it's going to scar as I have had other that have scarred but never mind, I have had other but they come and go by themselves, that one was the worst I have had and I hope I don't get any more for a while, but I won't hold my hopes up to high as I have a feeling I'm going into another flare it's sad because I have only been in remission for 2 nearly 3 months.

But never mind I just have to hold my head u and keep going as I am viewing a horse on Saturday so fingers crossed the she is the right horse and if she is she will be mine and I am so excited, let's hope my Crohn's behaves itself lol :P.

Sorry for long post I don't know what came over me :P.
