Feels Like Needles Poking My Skin
I have a rough area of skin under my Chin and it has a huge painful pimpleish lump on it... I poked it with a needle today and it bled, it's not gone?
Please don't poke it:
It is not advised to do so with any skin lesions.
You bring the risk of infection or damage to nearby or deep structures.
In your case you might have had a small abscess and as you poked it, it bled inside and blood mixed with pus came out.
I would advise to see a doctor to clear the lump as needed.
Please be aware that using needles or other instruments to the skin might cause scarring. ...Read more

White bumps in skin: If the material was truly pus and flowed out like a liquid, this would more likely be an abscess and be associated with inflammation. If it was cheesy, it is most likely a milia. Regardless, if you want these addressed, you must find a local physician to evaluate and treat you. ...Read more

New or Old?: Your symptoms sound like a generalized nerve problem or peripheral neuropathy that may be caused by illness (such as diabetes or thyroid deficiency) but are usually slow to develop and only in the feet and hands. If your symptoms are sudden, accompanied by weakness, or changes in your ability to walk, get an examination for a neurological problem immediately. Toxic exposures must also be tested. ...Read more
I feel like I have needles on my skin but there are no physical signs of it- should I be concerned?
Worth getting seen: Peripheral neuropathy (abnormal response of peripheral nerves causing abnormal sensations or numbness) can cause pins/needles feeling on the skin and has a large number of causes/contributors, some of which are serious (eg diabetes, ms, alcohol abuse, others). If there is no obvious cause (sitting too long in one position etc), or it persists, it is well worth being evaluated in clinic. ...Read more
See your PCP 2 start: Unfortunately, there isn't quite enough information to make any kind of educated guess for you. The experience of needles "piercing" or "pricking" is one that is seen in many different disorders (often with a neurological involvement). As this type of pain usually stems from a misfiring of the neurons and how the signal is received in the brain. Start with your PCP to rule out basic disorders. ...Read more

The skin on my back has been tingly (feels like needles and pins) when my shirt touches it. I do NOT have a rash.
You may not:
see a rash but one may be "in your future" since sometimes SHINGLES (Herpes Zoster) begins this way.
You should discuss these symptoms with your PCP (Primary Care Provider) since early use of ANTI-VIRAL medication may limit the disease if "caught early"
Just a thought!
Hope it is helps

If it is not red, tender, or swollen, leave it alone, just be sure to wash your face well daily. If it becomes tender, you may try applying warm compresses. ...Read more
