Folliculitis: If the bump is in an area where you shave, it is most likely an infected hair follicle, folliculitis.

How easy is it for teeth to get cracked? I turned my head suddenly and my bottom teeth were sliding against my top teeth. Are my teeth cracked?
Not Easily: But if traumatized by impact, grinding, or compromised by caries, they can chip or crack more readily. Enamel is the hardest substance in your body, but can still break if enough force is applied. Diamonds and granite are harder than enamel, but they too can be broken. If you grind, wear a bruxism guard to protect your teeth, and don't use them as tools. ...Read more

I had restylane (dermal fillers) in lips. Bottom lip is too big (post swelling).Is it easy and safe to reverse? My doc has never done it. Should I find someone who has?
Pretty safe: Restylane (dermal fillers) is Hyaluronic acid and there is something called hyaluronidase that can be injected to help break it down. Really the doc who did the procedure should learn to use it if s/he is going to be injecting and if you trust him/her to work through this with you. The hyaluronidase is a bit expensive. You might be able to negotiate the cost if agreed that you got more Restylane (dermal fillers) than needed. ...Read more

Found 3 red bumps near the bottom of my labia majora. They don't hurt and they aren't clustered together. Herpes or ingrown hairs? I shaved a week ago
Probably not herpes: Herpes is unlikely to first present with "3 red bumps". The initial infection usually is more severe than this. And within 7 days recurrent herpes would go from red bumps to blisters or open sores or scabs. If the bumps are in an area where you shave, folliculitis (hair follicle inflammation, ingrown hairs) is a good bet. See a doctor if they persist or if you remain concerned. ...Read more
