I've have outbreaks every 5-7 months for the past 2+ years; I've had a couple of different diagnoses. It starts with a large lump under the skin, usually appears near the growing or thigh area initially but will then travel through my body relocating sometimes to my chest area, under my armpit, or stomach area. The lump(s) never stay in one place. The lumps started out small, like the size of a golf ball but have increased in size with each outbreak, most recently to the of a soft ball. The lumps are red and hot to the touch. Chest pains accompany these outbreaks. I've been told it was some sort of dermatology issue, perhaps eczema and most recently a MRSA infection. The lumps will disappear after a round of antibiotics but the outbreaks always come back. I'm not sure I'm convinced its MRSA, but I don't know what this is.
