I have this hard red bump on my chin that kind of appeared out of nowhere. I had radiesse injected in my chin 1 month ago. I recently developed a cold sore on my lower lip and when it started to scab I noticed a hard red bump emerging on my chin. Could this be from radiesse? It almost seems like a spider bite? It's not itchy, but it is tender to the touch. I tried to drain in by sticking a needle in it ( I know that's bad) , but nothing really came out. A little clear fluid maybe.

Need to see physician
I recommend being seen by your physician. There are multiple possibilities of what this could be. By manipulating the area with a needle, you now run the risk of infection. I wish you the best of luck!

Yes, it's probably not a good idea for you to be sticking a pin into a bump on your chin after you had Radiesse injected! It is, actually, hard for any of us to make a determination as to cause and effect. You'll have to see your plastic surgeon who can, as a first step, indicate if the bump is even in a region that was injected, or how close. That doctor can also provide treatment to the bump, whatever it is and whatever it's from (and you may never know). Either way, I would advise an in-person consultation with your PS.
I hope that this helps and good luck,

This cannot be adequately determined without an in person evaluation. I would return to the injector to aid in this evaluation. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
