I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be due to abscess or boils, infected cysts or superficial thrombophlebitis of the veins. It is an inflammatory reaction to a clot within the vein. This subsequently causes blockages and dilation of the vein. It is typically painless, but can be painful.

I suggest your friend to get an examination done from a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

hi.. Good day to you..
tnx so much for the advice.. i agree with u, he asked me because i am also in the medical field and i promise him to give some answer but i cannot find any.. i only advice him to see the doctor for a more precise diagnosis.

anyway, when i ask him the day after he said that to me, it disappear just like before..
does it mean he has to see the doctor?
it might be some kind of a disease or something.. because it will not appear and disappear like that for no reason at all..
i'm not sure if he actually see and visit a doctor like what i said, because where not in the same place..

have a great day.. God Bless..
