White bump: Sounds like it could be an Apthous ulcrr. However I would definitely have it checked by your dentist when it is acute not after its healed. That would give him the best information to make a proper diagnosis ...Read more

I have two different small bumps on my head the don't itch or anything. But I pick and then they bleed profusely. What's up?

Scalps bleed: The scalp has a large blood supply to help the body cool down. So if it's injured, say by picking at it, it will bleed more than might be expected. As for what might the bumps might be, it's anyone's guess without a good photo. Have them looked at by a doctor preferably a dermatologist. ...Read more

So this morning I woke up with a bump on my head, I picked at it and it started bleeding. It has stopped after 5 minutes. Could someone help me?

No need to panic: Minor cuts on the head often bleed heavily because the face and scalp have many blood vessels close to the surface of the skin. Although this amount of bleeding may be alarming, many times the injury is not severe and the bleeding will stop with treatment you can do at home. Apply steady pressure for 15 minutes, this should stop it. ...Read more

Maybe: If you have trouble with persistent headaches, any instability, behavioral abnormalities or are getting worse you may have a concussion or worse. If the bleeding is controlled you need to decide if the cut is large enough to need sutures. ...Read more

Dresser tipped, hit 3yr old on head but did not land on her. Child cried right away, no bleeding or bump visible. She seems normal. Is she probably ok?

Dresser tipped, hit 3yr old on head but did not land on her. Child cried right away, no bleeding or bump visible. She seems normal. Is she probably ok?

Yes: When something hits a small child on the head or when she falls on her head from a distance of less than 5 feet, cries right away, the chances of any internal brain injury are very very small, as shown by a study at the er of a boston hospital some years ago. So you can be reassured and go on loving her. ...Read more

Have tiny skin colour bump on side of nose won't go away thought was white head used strip n made it bleed didn't go away what is this bump?

Have tiny skin colour bump on side of nose won't go away thought was white head used strip n made it bleed didn't go away what is this bump?

It could be nothing: That being said, it could be a basal cell carcinoma, although you are very young to have one. The nose is a common place for one to appear. You should see a dermatologist and have it removed/biopsied. Removal at this stage is generally the cure if it is a carcinoma. It is, however, at your age, most likely just a cyst of some kind. ...Read more

Skin infection: This sounds like a skin infection which is common in that area of the head. Don't scratch or peel the skin eruptions. Clean it with soap and water, apply Some antiseptic cream on it (no hydrocortisone!) and see your PCP soon. This infection can be very resistant and can rapidly spread. ...Read more

I have 1-2 itchy bumps on back of head that when I scratch they bleed and heal and are so itchy I scratch the scab off and it heals and comes back 5 y?

Your age?: It is hard to tell without you giving us any detail on the history or even your age. Although itching often points to an allergic contact condition (hair preparations especially black hair dye), it may also be from a skin cancer. Best to get them checked especially if you are over age 50. ...Read more

I'm on coumadin (warfarin) with stable INR. Hit my head on the handle above car door. No bruise, bump, or selling. Some soreness. Could I have brain bleed?

I'm on coumadin (warfarin) with stable INR. Hit my head on the handle above car door. No bruise, bump, or selling. Some soreness. Could I have brain bleed?

Good Question: Procedures that were performed our presume that CAT scan in them or I would've picked up a blame brain bleed. While there is reports of a delay bring a lead within 24 to 48 hours this would be unusual. A careful history with attention to changes in cognitive status would be helpful and will determine whether a further evaluation is needed. Good luck ismy wishes. ...Read more

I have this Rock hard bump in my anal canal the size of a pin head. It hurts when I touch it. No Bleeding but just hard. Can it be an external pile?

No: But you are "close"

It's most likely an INTERNAL hemorrhoid which has clotted and is shrinking...

It will slowly go away! If it does not your PCP can look with an "anoscope"

Sitz baths might help!
Hope this helps!
