Mucoceles?: There is no way to know for sure without actually clinically examining you. However, they may be mucoceles which are little fluid filled sacs from blocked ducts on the many minor salivary glands in your mouth. If chronic, have your local dentist examine you just to be sure. ...Read more

I have a tiny bubbled, clear fluid filled bump inside my inner lip, it's painless. Never had any bumps before. What could it be?

Mucocele possibly: The bump on the inside of your lip is probably a mucocele. It is caused when the duct to a minor salivary gland gets clogged or traumatized and the saliva backs up forming a fluid filled bump. They are most common on the lower lip but can occur elsewhere in the mouth as well. Small ones can resolve on their own. Large ones (as shown here) require surgical removal by and oral surgeon. ...Read more

I have 2 clear fluid filled bumps at the top of my throat with little white spots in them. Also I have been having sticky hard nose discharge.

I have 2 clear fluid filled bumps at the top of my throat with little white spots in them. Also I have been having sticky hard nose discharge.

It sounds like: You have sinusitis with a post nasal drip. You may need a round of antibiotics but flonase, generic, is a nasal steroid that, if used at night, turns post nasal drip into an antiinflammatory gruel. It could be viral allergies or even bacterial so I would go in but Flonase is cheap, safe, highly effective and good to have around, good luck. ...Read more

Not hives no redness cluster of small hard clear fluid filled bumps on heel of palm on both hands palms and soles of feet itchy Benadryl (diphenhydramine) no help?

A form of dermatitis: There are a few different conditions that may cause such a presentation. This could be due to an organism. But there are a variety of causes which could be due to eczema or a less common condition called pompholyx. It can be challenging to diagnose in a clinical presentation, so I'm thinking the blisters should be cultured and biopsied. Some rx's usually include a topical steroid. ...Read more

You probably have: An infection and possibly and abscess, that is a collection of infectious material within a tissue. Treatment is antibiotics and possibly incision and drainage by a physician. Signs are redness, swelling, heat and pain. If is not an abscess, you have an infection as per your description. Seek medical attention asap. ...Read more

Can upper lip hair removal cause single pus filled bump that starts tingling after being popped, very painful, and doesn't bleed but leak clear fluid?

Can upper lip hair removal cause single pus filled bump that starts tingling after being popped, very painful, and doesn't bleed but leak clear fluid?

Yes: It sounds like the procedure induced a "cold sore, " or HSV1 eruption and you should be treated with Valtrex (valacyclovir) or Acyclovir asap. You can use Abreva which is over-the-counter. Avoid chocolate and nuts and triy to eat more chicken and yogurt. Don't have any more treatments until it clears up and be sure to pretreat with those same medicines before the next treatment. Also, stop pinching it! ...Read more

I have meatitis when I pressed on the bump clear fluid came out I have doc appointment on Friday is there anything I can do in the mean time.

Meatitis: I don't recommend trying to express fluid from this urethral lesion. Blistering is often a sign of a herpes infection. I'm glad that you're going to be examined when appropriate testing will be done. In the meantime If the meatus is irritated, apply warm water applications, pat dry and apply an antibacterial ointment like bacitracin. Drink adequate fluids to produce good urine output and flow ...Read more

My husband has a bump near his anal which erupts on occasion which has blood and sometimes white or clear fluid mixed with blood. Feels like a crater?

Anal Lesions: Hi

this makes me want to recommend that he get medical attention sooner than later. There are two common scenarios, the bump or lump is a hemorrhoid or an anal fissure. In either case if the lump ulcerates or gets worse than a significant infection can develop and there may be an urgent need to fix this surgically ensues. I often see patients for this or send on to a specialist. ...Read more

I had a very lumpy swollen bump with a slight white head on it near my smile line like a bite almost I squeezed it and a clear fluid came out a lot it?

Don't squeeze: We discourage people from squeezing these things because it increases the risk of scarring. But now that you've already done it, keep it clean and hope it doesn't heal with a scar. If it doesn't heal, see a dermatologist to make sure it isn't something more significant. ...Read more

I have this bump that's looks like a mosquito bite but bigger clear fluid coming out. Spider bite? What should I do. Just got another one

Good chance.: There is a good chance that they are insect bites, particularly if they itch. Check your bed to make sure there are no bugs in it (i know, gross) and your pets to make sure they are not bringing in bugs from outside. If you continue to get more, other possibilities, such as viral illness and contact dermatitis, become more likely, and you should see a dermatologist. ...Read more
