My mum has a hard red bump at the bottom of her leg, no hairs growing out of it and gets very red when she walks and puts pressure on it.

Possibly a boil: I can't tell for sure what the red bump is without gathering more information from you. Common things being common, it may be a skin abscess or a furuncle (boil). Boils arise when areas of skin containing hair follicles are exposed to friction and perspiration. Small ones may resolve with warm compresses. Larger ones need incision and drainage of pus. She should probably see a doctor. ...Read more

My daughter is 6mo& has a patch of fine hair above her bottom on her back & today in the sun I saw she has light hair on her vagina. Is this normal?

Fine hairs infant: Certain ethnic groups tend to have more body hair than others, even in infancy. The light hair on her vaginal area is likely nothing to worry about unless it becomes dark and curly. The patch of hair above her bottom, or over her sacrum, is occassionally related to abnormalities of the end of the spinal canal. Have your pediatrician follow these things at her routine health visits. ...Read more

Found 3 red bumps near the bottom of my labia majora. They don't hurt and they aren't clustered together. herpes or ingrown hairs? I shaved a week ago

Probably not herpes: Herpes is unlikely to first present with "3 red bumps". The initial infection usually is more severe thatn this. And within 7 days recurrent herpes would go from red bumps to blisters or open sores or scabs. If the bumps are in an area where you shave, folliculitis (hair follicle inflammation, ingrown hairs) is a good bet. See a doctor if they persist or if you remain concerned. ...Read more

Avoid: waxing, shaving,tight thong undergarments and body oils or lotion. Coal tar derivatives should not be used on the pubic area. Use only gentle shampoo or soap and a very thin layer of 1% hydrocortisone cream. If not red or swollen, I suggest calling your GYN. ...Read more

Folliculitis ?: Sounds like folliculitis (google it). If it is and it is chronic, you need to see your doctor and get a culture. This condition can be staph and needs treatment with antibiotics. If you have trouble getting in to see a Dr. you can get a good photo of the area and do a Virtual Consult. If you are from Texas, I would be glad to help. If not from Texas, find a HealthTap doc from your state. ...Read more
