My pig has black spots on her filled with black fluid

I recently found small black spots under her skin and upon further examination I found they were filled with a black liquid. I don't know what they are and couldn't find anything similar on the internet

Melanomas of some sort me thinks. I suspect unlikely to brother her may be genetic could render her liver inedible but i am no pig expert. Ask another Hampshire breeder

Could be swine erysipelas which is an acute bacterial disease of pigs responds well to penicillin

Do the erysipelas diamonds go necrotic and fill with black gunge?
