About twice a year I get a small lump/lumps (between 1 and 3 at a time) under my skin always on my left hand on or around my little finger. Over a couple of days gets really sore and inflamed and fills with puss and then it seems to dry up of its own accord and shrinks back to a little dot. I am sure this is not just a normal spot as it always returns in the same place. Doctor said it was a fungal infection and I have some cream to reduce it but it has been re-occuring like this for about 4 years, it is usually gone by the time I can get a Doctors appointment. Any ideas?
