I've4 or mor mosqito bites in face that don't go away snce 1mnth..My dr. Said apersistet insect bite reaction& gave me drugs..Do these'll leave marks?
Likely yes: Some people do scar from insect bites. The dark spots will fade over time. Try to stay out of the sun and use daily sunscreen as a suntan will make your marks less likely to vanish. Apply bio-oil daily for around 6 weeks. This is a good anti-scar oil. If your md gave you steroid cream, try to only apply to each scar and not the surrounding skin. ...Read more
Diagnosed wit mono dr gav me meloxicam,cephalexin keflex m broken out l have a rash its swollen on my face chin around eyes is this normal or alleric?
Could be either: Some viral infections (like mono) can cause you to develop a rash with penicillin related antibiotics (like cephalexin). Given the swelling, it sounds more like an allergic reaction. You should see your doctor, who can prescribe a different antibiotic if they feel it is needed. If at any time you develop inability to swallow or trouble breathing, go immediately to the ER. Hope this helps! ...Read more
Dr on here said to c my pcp but didn't answer what lump could be? Marble sized unmovable tender lump inch above my elbow in uppr armon tendon or bone
Go see your doc!: It's impossible to tell from the little bit of info you've given, especially w/o examination. Perhaps you just have a swollen lymph node. Or abscess (pus pocket). Or (sebaceous) cyst. Not a common area for ganglion cyst. Maybe (aneurysmal) bone cyst. Bottom line, you need to go see your doc.

Lumbar disc fusion yr. Ago, dr. Said looked good, slight halo near pedicle, dr. Not worried, should I be?
Answer to dr. Daniel: it's my 3-year-old son. He suddenly developed a lump under his chin, and the ENT suspects that it's a thyroglossal cyst.
Likely diagnosis: A midline neck mass in a child is usually benign. Thyroglossal duct cyst and dermoid cysts are the most common. Sometimes a lymph node will pop up. Depending on the examination the ENT will make a determination if it needs to be removed. If it is suspected to be a thyroglossal duct cyst removal is necessary before it gets infected and becomes a problem. ...Read more

I have white bump on bottom lip for 5 yrs it's now scaly and wont healdoc says its a cold sore.Yer ago mouth swelled &pain in face &earmri said reactiv lymph nodes. No cancer. Help! docs don't know?
Two problems: Let another doctor look at your lip if the scaly bump is always there. It could be precancerous but probably not in a 35 year old female. I would guess that the facial pain and swelling is unrelated to the lip, and i would believe the doctor on that one. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Itchy red, alligator like feeling, swollen rash on cheeks, neck & chest. Swollen eyelids. Dr. Said allergic reaction, steroid medication is not helpin?
Up the treatment: I see in your medication list that you are taking Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) an h1 antihistamine, and were prescribed a steroid cream. You can try an over the counter h2 antihistamine Loratadine along with the above. You may need to be switched from the steroid cream to steroids by mouth, so a followup with your doctor would be the next step. If you have lip/mouth symptoms, go to Emergency Dept. ...Read more

Hello Dr. My daughter is just 1 year old she got some skin problem but we r confused whether its scabies or herpes. 1 Dr. Said herpes & other Scabies.
Skin Rash: rashes are difficult to diagnose at times, and some in the early stages look similar. Scabies tends to be more diffuse in Ethernet the fingers, in the skin folds and along the diaper line. Herpes tends to be in one place. That being said it is unclear why you are going to see multiple doctors for the same rash. Try to see your pediatrician or FP if the rash changes then they can see the progres ...Read more
