A 22-year-old female asked:
Disclaimer

It started with a pimple on my elbow. Then I feel a small lump inside, as if it is stuck on my bone. There is no pain, the lump is also not visible yet but the area is a little pinkish. What is this?

Lump: Lumps need to be examined by your doctor. It may be as simple as an infected hair flocale or something more. Please follow through. Peace and good health.
