Son w/cephalohemat. 3 months now, bump's gone, but head is slightly bigger that side, not flat.1ped said its normal, other said plagiocephaly. I'm lost?

Son w/cephalohemat. 3 months now, bump's gone, but head is slightly bigger that side, not flat.1ped said its normal, other said plagiocephaly. I'm lost?

Head shape: It's not surprising there is a bit of asymmetry. The increased blood flow to the side of the head where the body needed to get rid of the hematoma likely led to a bit more bone growth on that side. The good news is that even if it is plagiocephaly, it is likely to correct itself as he is still very young. Most cases of plagiocephaly self-resolve. Have pediatrician monitor and give it a few months. ...Read more

This morning I got a small itchy bump on my wrist, after scratching it, it spread around my wrist more. They are skin colored and flat. What is this?

Itchy Bumps: It is hard for me to say without looking. In general, widesprad, aymmetrical, red and itchy bumps tend to be caused by a virus, rather than an allergy. They often hang around for a while, and go away without treatment. If yours have lasted weeks and started to spread, I would advise that you show them to a doctor, since only in that way can you get a definitive diagnosis. ...Read more

I have a small skin colored bump near the back of my vagina on the lip. It is almost flat but it is hard. It itches once in a while. What is it?

Hard to tell.: Most skin issues really need to be seen to be diagnosed well. There are a lot of other questions to be asked as well. There are several things this could be - including sebaceous gland, dermatofibroma, lichen planus, wart, sexually transmitted disease, etc. Don't be too worried about it, but have someone look at it. ...Read more

I have a raised brown flat bump on my right hand its small like a centimeter big and I just want to know if its skin cancer or not.

I have a raised brown flat bump on my right hand its small like a centimeter big and I just want to know if its skin cancer or not.

Probably not: At age 20 it is statistically very unlikely to be cancer. A mole is brown but 1 cm diameter, is a bit large so it is best to have a doctor check it. You may just be reassured or have it removed either for diagnostic or cosmetic reason. It would be guesswork to give an accurate diagnosis online. Take care. ...Read more

May be fungus/yeast: It is very difficult to diagnose any kind of rash in genital area without looking at it. My guess is that it is a fungus or yeast infection. Try any antifungal like Monistat-derm. Follow the directions of using it properly and if not better in a week, see a Dermatologist if you can or see a family doctor. ...Read more

I have one bump on my upper lip! It has been there for 3 to 4 days! It came to a head and I popped it!! Now it is a flat hard spot! It does itch so I assumed it was a cold sore but it's not a blister or a cluster just one bump??

Sounds like you: May have a MUCOCOELE a small mucous containing
cyst which originates on the line joining your lip tissue
and your skin! It should slowly resolve but if persists ask your Dentist for a referral to an oral/plastic surgeon for excision!

Hope this helps!
