    As I explained on Chit Chat, I can't help here but I hope someone can.

    Sorry, I do get trouble in my left hip, but never had a hot sore lump there, so can`t really advise.

    Mike, that to me sounds like inflammation - have you tried ice rather than heat? Ice is good for reducing swelling: I shall be draping a bag of Daisy's knee peas (they are clearly labelled because they are not to be eaten) over my right knee tonight because that is hot and puffy. DD
