Small red bump bump on the tip of my tounge, it's been here for a few days and it's really soar. Is this something to worry about? What is it?

Lets review your sym: Any fever chills? any other lesions? are you sexually active? Most likely it is just an inflamed taste bud. i would watch to see if more lesions appear in other parts of yor mouth if not then it nothing to be concerned about. It will eventually resolve on its own. ...Read more

I have one small red bump on my leg and i don't know what it is?

I have one  small red bump on my leg and i don't know what it is?

I don't either: Bumps and lesions are very hard, if not impossible to diagnose over the computer. If the bump does not go away on its own in the next few days, than a physical exam by a health care provider would help determine what the bump might be and how to treat it. Good luck. ...Read more

What could cause a small red bump on my stomach?

Red bumps: If you mean tiny red bumps that are permanent, they may be harmless cherry hemangiomas which are blood vessel growths that run in families. They can be removed but there is no reason to do so.

If there is a small red bump at the area a week late after you found a tick but not a bullseye is that a concern?

If there is a small red bump at the area a week late after you found a tick but not a bullseye is that a concern?

Probably not: But not everyone who develops lyme disease from tick bite gets the rash. Look for fever, muscle/joint pain, fatigue, along with rash as signs. If present, be seen. Watch bump. Should go away in 10-14 days. If not, gets bigger, causes pain, see doctor. Hope this was helpful. Best of luck. Dr R ...Read more

My 18 month old has a small red bump on her arm that has persisted for weeks. It doesn't seem to bother her. Should I worry?

You should be taking her in for an 18 month well visit, if you haven't done so already. ...Read more

See your MD: Your family physician, internal medicine doctor, or gynecologist should perform a well-woman exam if you haven't been getting them, but call to make a new appointment and let them know that you have a "sore" on your genitals and it needs it to be examined; this will help get you seen sooner. ...Read more

Wore a thong for the 1st time and my upper buttcrack is now red/irritated and there's a small red bump. Is it from the friction or something serious?

Wore a thong for the 1st time and my upper buttcrack is now red/irritated and there's a small red bump. Is it from the friction or something serious?

SKIN IRRITATION: Sounds like a superficial abrasion or contact dermatitis. Neither are serious. Both are self-limiting. I'd recommend 0.5% Hydrocortisone applied twice daily... and NO thong for now. If symptoms don't resolve or if symptoms worsen, follow up w/ you doctor ...Read more
