Inflamed red itchy area on left hip?

Inflamed red itchy area on left hip. I had a BBL 5 weeks ago with fat transfer to buttocks and hips. My left hip looked swollen, inflamed. I used coco butter for the first time few days before the symptoms started. Could it be contact dermatitis or infection from the fat transfer? Please advise.

From your description these symptoms could be many things and require examination by your physician. Mainly to rule out infection.

Consult your doctor ASAP to start treatment early.
