Cysts in Diabetics

I am a 36 y o female with Diabetes and Fibromyalgia.  I have a lump on my leg that is painful and seems to be spreading as opposed to getting bigger.  The pain is going to my hip, all on the right side.  I went to the endo doc and he said see primary doc, saw primary doc she said it's just a bruise.  The bruise did clear up somewhat, but the lump and pain are still there.  What should I do?

This discussion is related to SEVERE THROBBING THIGH PAIN.

Hi, could you please specify the drugs you are on. Also, consult dermatologist too. It is hard to say, but it could be deep venous thrombosis, cellulites, etc. Is it tender to touch?

It is cellulitis, and they put me on Bactrim (I know, usually for U T I's.  But I take Vicodin, Clonopin, Verapamil, Lamictal, Cymbalta, Ferrous Sulfate, Lofibra, Ambien, Lyrica, Flovent, Albuterol, Novolog, Lantus, Metformin.....that's what I can think of off the top of my head, there's more though....) probably because of all the meds that I take.  But I was feeling good the last dose into the treatment 2 tabs for 7 days.  But here I am again with another lump on my leg, just a little bit a way from where the last one was, and I feel sick.  I called the Hospital that treated me and they said to follow up with my primary.  And it is tender to touch.
