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

It : It is unclear whether the three are physically in proximity, where on the leg they are located, what associated medical problems you may have and what the inciting cause was (e.g. Trauma?) in any case, what you may have is a furuncle, i.e. Boil. In some patients, the hair follicle get infected, sometimes called folliculitis - this may lead to a deeper and wider skin infection called furunculosis. Carbuncles are series of abscesses in the subcutaneous tissue that drain via hair follicles and are a complication of furunculosis. Frequently developing on the back of the neck, face, armpit, thighs and buttocks, furuncles and carbuncles are caused by perspiration, friction and bacteria. People who are obese, on corticosteroid therapy, or those with defective white blood cell function may be predisposed to furuncles and carbuncles. Furuncles and carbuncles may be treated with warm compresses, which promote spontaneous drainage, as well as oral and topical antibiotics. If the redness increases, particularly if a red streak appears, then you should see your physician. ...Read more

Skin bumps: hello, without access to a picture or being able to visualize this lesion, it sounds as thought this could be a flea bite if you have animals or bed bug bite if you recently stayed in a hotel. You can treat both with OTC cortisone cream like cortoderm cream or any anti-histamine cream at all. If it progresses please see a doctor to evaluate..thanks ...Read more
