How do I get rid of the small flesh colored pimples/bumps that are constantly on my face, that can be only be felt and seen in certain light?

Depends...: ...On what they are. If it's acne, a dermatologist can do a treatment to remove them and prescribe medications to prevent new ones. But it could also be one of several other entities; let a dermatologist look at them and determine exactly what they are, so that the correct treatment can be prescribed. ...Read more

Could fibromyalgia cause pain in the body flesh. I can't touch my back flesh from neck till the end. Pain is like pressing on pimple. I can't sleep on ba?

Could be: Fibromyalgia is not well understood. There is a test for 18 tender points that can present a diagnostician with a more definitive diagnosis of fibromyalgia. I would start with your doctor and see if other tests may have to be run. ...Read more

Please have your: Doctor examine you so that you can be properly diagnosed and treated. It is difficult to make a diagnosis without seeing the rash. If you have no medical contraindication to doing so, you could take a non-sedating antihistamine meanwhile to relieve the itching. ...Read more

I have a couple small flesh colored bumps near my anus. They don't hurt or itch, a pimple hurts more, but it grows a little. I have a bf who's deploye?

??: Not exactly sure what you're asking, but some of the lesions you describe can be the result of viruses that we are all exposed to. You mentioned your boyfriend was deployed, if the question is if it is possible they were sexual transmitted, the answer is yes. Go to your doc and get evaluated and treated. Use condoms to protect yourself. ...Read more

Can popping pimples lead to flesh- eating disease?

Can popping pimples lead to flesh- eating disease?

Unlikely: The so-called flesh eating disease is a bacterial infection caused by an aggressive staphlycoccus organism which usuallly infects deeply into the skin and deeper tissues. It is fortunately not very common. However, it is not a good idea to "pop" pimples as this can cause the infection and inflammation to spread. ...Read more

Sounds like sebaceou: S cyst. But squeezing won't help them. Still without seeing I can't be sure. Make appointment with dermatologist and by the time you get in, they can inject and drain it. Or if small enough, excise it ...Read more

Have bumps on the back of my tongue, similar to a pimple but same color as my tissue and no pain or discomfort at all, what is it?

Have bumps on the back of my tongue, similar to a pimple but same color as my tissue and no pain or discomfort at all, what is it?

Sounds normal...: I'm guessing you are noticing normal circumvallate papillae. Typically there are 7-9 of them in a shallow V-shaped row across the back of the tongue. Each one is about 2-3 mm (1/8") in diameter. Google it and look at photos. If you have something different, check it out with your doctor or dentist. ...Read more

Hives: Hives tend to be red, round, raised and very itchy. Yours aren't red but they match up otherwise. I like to think of hives as the baskin robbins of skin conditions, they come in 31 different flavors. Try a little over the counter non-sedating oral antihistamine or topical anti-itch creams twice daily. ...Read more

Flesh coloured bump at upper lip line grows turns white after a month then puss came out. Pimple or cancer?

Flesh coloured bump at upper lip line grows turns white after a month then puss came out. Pimple or cancer?

Get it seen: I'm betting it's a small epidermoid inclusion cyst. See if your physician can tell you and perhaps excise it when things settle down. Nobody -- not even Hollywood "pretty boys" -- has a perfect face, and you're likely to have a scar here, and a pretty good story to go with it. Try and keep your hands away from it and get seen soon. ...Read more

I have this small flesh colored bump on my right index finger that kind of tingles when I touch it. Could it be a wart or a developing pimple?

I have this small flesh colored bump on my right index finger that kind of tingles when I touch it. Could it be a wart or a developing pimple?

Probably wart: A flesh colored bump on the finger may be a wart - doubt it's a pimple. There is a viral wart - Molloscum contagiosum - that is often described as flesh colored, soft and occasionally may look like white substance is in it. These resolve on their own in about 2 years. Don't pick at bump! See your MD for an exam to help determine the cause. Http://www. Webmd. Com/skin-problems-and-treatments/tc/warts-and-plantar-warts-topic-overview ...Read more

Check results: If your MD did a culture, then he or she was suspicious. You will need to wait for the results, although sometimes the culture can miss it. When the results come back, you need to discuss this with your MD. ...Read more

If I pop a tiny flesh colored bump right above prepuce of clitoris where skin is, not in pubic hair area, & pus comes out like pimple, no big deal?

Well I don' recommen: Popping things as that is frequently how people get superinfections. I don;t know if it was a plugged follicle or cyst. See gynecologist or dermatologist for a diagnosis if it doesn't go away ...Read more

I have this flesh colored bumps on my nose and they are not skin tag. They are like pimples but, without the itch, redness, cyst. What's this?

Worth getting seen: We can't diagnose you at a distance, but this is worth discussing with your physician, now if it is new, or at your regular appointment if it is not. This may be anything from the "adenoma sebaceum" of mild tuberous sclerosis to early deformity from rosacea to sebaceous hyperplasia. I'll bet on the last. ...Read more
