I am an otherwise healthy female in my late 30’s. My lymph node under one arm appears to be swollen and the area is discolored. The skin appears dark red to brown. There are no bumps or itching. The area is almost a perfect circle and I have tried treating it with an anti fungal medication thinking it might be ringworm. The skin seems healthy and is not dry or scaly. The area feels bruised but I have not sustained any injury to the area. The dark area has completely disappeared and them reappears lasting months sometimes. I have a history of reoccurring kidney infections and have had anemia on and off most of my life. Both my parents were diagnosed with different autoimmune disorders but were otherwise healthy. Any ideas what this could be? I would hate to waste anyone’s time with something benign and easily treated with an OTC.
