Hey challenged...How long has it been like this? If its been more than 3 days, i would deffinatly make a call in to your doctor. If its nothing too important at least seeing your doctor will ease your mind at what it could be.

Amy, it has been like that for 2 days now. I just came back from the doctor because it kept swelling. She did an ultra sound but I don't know the results. She did some blood work and said that it was abnl. white count is a little elevated and everything else was low. Will find out results of US in the am. Thanks for your concern.
