I have had a whitehead directly on my bottom lip in the same spot 3 times. Goes away after popping. Just sore the next day. Is it due to chapped lips?

I have had a whitehead directly on my bottom lip in the same spot 3 times. Goes away after popping. Just sore the next day. Is it due to chapped lips?

Lip Eruption: You are describing a single vesicular (cystic) eruption repeatedly on the same spot on your lip which becomes sore. I am suspicious that this is an HSV infection, not a comedone or acne and either way is not related to chapped lips. You may need to talk to your doctor to confirm since we have no pictures to look at. Acne only occurs where there is a pilocebaceous gland or hair not on lips. ...Read more

Apparently I have a staph infection, my vagina is itchy and red spots which turn into whiteheads keep popping up in diff places. What does this mean?

Apparently I have a staph infection, my vagina is itchy and red spots which turn into whiteheads keep popping up in diff places. What does this mean?

? Folliculitis: This sounds like folliculitis (inflammation of the hair follicle). Staph can cause it. But there are other things that can cause a folliculitis. You should have the contents of one of these "whiteheads" cultured to be sure it is staph before you accept an antibiotic. And if you shave your bikini area it could be you are spreading the problem. So, stop shaving for now, get treatment and new razors. ...Read more

I have "pimples" on my breasts. Dark red in color and pushed - blood comes out. Flatten after popping and kinda leaves mark. Should I be worried?

Doctor can check: Skin lesions (bumps, pimples, etc...) that pop with some blood, and leave a scar mark, should be checked by a primary care doctor or a dermatologist. A dermatologist can tell whether the lesions are a serious problem or not. Rashes are very hard to describe in words. A diagnosis needs a visual examination. ...Read more

Do you think I can go out normally during the day while using Mederma on a pimple dark spot?

Do you think I can go out normally during the day while using Mederma on a pimple dark spot?

Sun worsens scars: I always recommend to my post op patients to use sunscreen on their incision sites for at least 6 months. If you get sun on a scar it will change the color of the scar, making it's appearance worse. Using the mederma shouldn't be affected by the sun, but you should use sunscreen to help prevent worsening of the scar.

Doctor can evaluate: Rashes are hard to describe in words. Small pimples can be due to acne reasons, which can happen even with adults. The treatment would be acne medicines, which include benzoyl peroxide, retinoid gels, and antibiotic gels. Small pimples can also be folliculitis or other skin problems. Darkening of the skin after any rash can happen because more blood flow and more pigment can occur during healing. ...Read more

Scar tissue: Pimples are inflammation (irritation). When you popped it you may have caused some of this irritation to go down further into the fatty cells. There the body formed small amount of scar tissue to form. Gently massage area daily but I would have your MD check it out to make sure. Please don't pick/pop pimples - it often causes things to get worse! Ask your MD for medicine to help acne. ...Read more

I have acne n I use akneroxid gel in the afternoon and sudocream I use in the night before sleep for dark spot from pimple. Is it good???

Not recommended: First line acne treatment for mild to moderate acne would be anything whose active ingredient is Benzoyl Peroxide. A gel works best but can be drying. I would avoid an antiseptic healing cream like Sudocream as this may increase resistance and cause excessive drying of the skin. ...Read more

Sunscreen, exfoliate: The dark spot is a hyperpigmentation scar that will fade on its own. The most important thing is to wear sunscreen everyday as the spots can get darker in the sun. An over-the-counter cream containing retinol or aha can help exfoliate the spot and speed the healing, however these creams can irritate the skin. Even with the creams it will take a few weeks to months to heal, so be patient. ...Read more

Post inflammatory: Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation is a common and normal response during the healing process. When traumatized skin heals, redness, followed by dark discoloration often occurs. With time, the site will usually resume normal coloration to match the surrounding skin. Normalization may happen faster with good skin care with hypoallergenic washes and moisturizers. ...Read more
