I recommend having it evaluated by a dermatologist to determine if these should be excised. ...Read more

So I would treat the itchiness with dandruff shampoo and Hydrocortisone cream1%, and I would apply warm compresses to the lump. See a doctor if you are not better after a week or two. ...Read more
