Hair Loss (Definition)

Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia. Alopecia areata occurs when the body's immune system attacks hair follicles and causes hair to fall out. Androgenetic (or androgenic) alopecia, on the other hand, is an inherited form of hair loss. With alopecia areata, hair can fall out in patches all over the body. With androgenetic alopecia, hair on the head first thins and then falls out. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss; in women, it is called ...Read more

Hair: Details are lacking but it may be sebaceous cyst. They can occur elsewhere, scalp back etc. Usually hard moveable. They must be surgically treated but unless infected harmless. White is probably sebum or congealed excretion that can not be excreted due blockage of pore. In scalp old term is a wen. ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: Bumps may be cysts filled with dead skin cells and/or oily sebaceous gland secretions. Sometimes an infection happens if bacteria get inside the bumps and cause white blood cells to go there (causing pus). A primary care doctor, a dermatologist, or an ob-gyn doctor can evaluate and give some recommendations. ...Read more

My girl just recently started shaving her Vagina with hair Clippers and now there's a flesh colored bump that only hurts if you squeeze it suggestions?

Maybe ingrown hair: Get her to leave her pubic hair alone and allow it to grow out. There may be a hair that is ingrown. Keep the area clean and apply warm compresses to attempt to get it to drain and if a hair is visible, remove it. If no success, visit her doctor for management. All the best. ...Read more

I found a small bump that looked like an ingrown hair and I squeezed it and felt like there was a small hard ball inside...Is it HPV, skin tag or??

I found a small bump that looked like an ingrown hair and I squeezed it and felt like there was a small hard ball inside...Is it HPV, skin tag or??

Maybe not: Little bumps that have a "small hard ball" inside are more likely to be acne bumps, which means open comedones (blackheads), small acne bumps (closed comedones), or small acne pustules (whiteheads). They could also be molluscum, which are caused by a virus.
Skin tags and HPV warts don't tend to have a lump of stuff inside the center. ...Read more

Skin abscess: This sounds like exactly what you say, a pimple. More precisely, a small skin abscess, perhaps starting in a hair follicle (i.e. folliculitis). Due to common skin bacteria, no different than on your shoulder, back, or anywhere else -- not special just because it's in the pubic area. Leave it alone, no more squeezing. See a doctor if it doesn't clear up soon, or if any spreading redness or fever. ...Read more

I have a hard bump on my vagina. It hurt so I put a hot towel on it, squeezed it and puss and thin blood came out. It went down but it's still there and it itches sometimes. It's on top of the vagina were the pubic hair is.

Infected gland: There are numerous glands at the vaginal entrance. These glands secrete fluid that helps lubricate the vagina. Sometimes the openings of these glands become obstructed, causing fluid to back up into the gland. At times, the fluid within the cyst may become infected. See your doctor to get it drained if needed and treated. ...Read more

I had a very lumpy swollen bump with a slight white head on it near my smile line like a bite almost I squeezed it and a clear fluid came out a lot it?

Don't squeeze: We discourage people from squeezing these things because it increases the risk of scarring. But now that you've already done it, keep it clean and hope it doesn't heal with a scar. If it doesn't heal, see a dermatologist to make sure it isn't something more significant. ...Read more

I hit my head and got a mild concussion on saturday night and tonight my bump looked weird so I squeezed it an puss came out. Should I be concerned?

I hit my head and got a mild concussion on saturday night and tonight my bump looked weird so I squeezed it an puss came out. Should I be concerned?

Infection: You probably don't need to be too concerned, but if the bump doesn't go away, you could have more pus or infection just sitting in your bump. Usually when there is pus, we like to get all of it out. Once it's out, you'll start the healing process. The infection came from getting your head hit hard enough that the skin had a small break or tear that allowed bacteria on your skin to get inside. ...Read more

I have a white-reddish bump on my penis head a few centimeters from my urethra. If I squeeze it every few days white puss comes out. What is going on?

Doctor can examine: One's primary care doctor can examine the bump to see if it is a sebaceous gland (oil-producing gland), a little skin cyst (whitehead or blackhead), or an actual infection (folliculitis, etc...). It will be easier for the doctor to diagnose it if the patient does not squeeze the stuff out of it, but let the stuff build up for 3 days and allow the doctor a chance to squeeze it out. ...Read more

Squeezed small bump on neck. Awful smelling stuff comes out. Keeps coming back. It is not a boil. Its under skin no head. Is it infected pore.

Sebaceous cyst: This is a typical sebaceous cyst. It's probably not infected now, and is harmless unless and until that happens. But it can be a pretty big deal if infection occurs. It can be treated with minor surgery to prevent recurrent accumulation, drainage, and infection -- probably by a dermatologist. Contact your doctor about a referral. ...Read more
