I have a small circular scab on side of my foot for a while, I picked it off &theres a chunk missing with red dot present. Could it be skin cancer?
Need more info:
It is unlikely to be skin cancer. Did you hurt that site? Was it subject to constant rubbing from shoes or something else? For now watchful waiting is appropriate. If the lesion does not bleed, ulcerate, become foul smelling or has a discharge, you may give it time to heal.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

A month ago my daughter had a scab on her face, her scab fell off leaving a mark and its taking long for her skin to grow back to normal.help??!
Patience: It can easily take several months for the skin to be restored after any defect. Primary repair is often accomplished in 6 weeks, but tonal qualities and the contour of the skin may take a year. Your doc could suggest some things to protect the area from solar damage and speed recovery. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My daughter scratches her butt, lower back, and around her waste constantly. I noticed she has tiny healing sores and scabs. Is it just dry skin?
May be more than dry: The sores and scabs can be from the scratching. She can be scratching because of dryness, eczema, insect bites, or contact dermatitis. Since you seem to describe area of body covered by underwear, I would wonder if she's reacting to fabric, elastic, diaper/ training pants (in a toddler) fabric detergent, or personal care products. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi my daughter had head butted me in the nose and as soon as she did there was a popping noise. There was immediate pain redness and slight swelling.
Ouch!: The popping noise could be a separation of the cartillage from the nasal bone or a nasal bone fracture. If your nose looks crooked, or if one nostril is really blocked relative to the other, I recommend having it examined by your doctor, ENT or urgent care. Non-displaced fractures usually heal well without intervention, but if deviated, it should be treated within 2-3 days. ...Read more

See a dermatologist: A rash on the cheek in an infant can be various things. The most common type of rash is eczema (or atopic dermatitis) and it sounds like what your daughter may have. But I would still recommend an evaluation by a dermatologist to make sure it's not an unusual inflammatory disorder or an infection. ...Read more
