May be ...: A bump from pimple (1- 1.5 mm) - hyperactive hair-follicle-related sebaceous gland, usually has its white head visible, but at times, can be a "black" head. But, it's harmless as long as being asymptomatic and remaining stable in size. But, if still in doubt, see urologist timely for confirmation. Online guess is not always accurate. ...Read more

I'm just getting over a sty but i now have hard pimple like bumps on my stomach, hips, and legs. They do not itch but some are tender.

Not related: The sty of the eyelid usually resolves with hot compresses. As for the unrelated bumps elsewhere, i believe they be keratosis pilaris and may feel better with moisturizing lotion & creams, and sometimes better with exfoliation lotions. However, to be certain, an examination of your skin would be necessary. A family doctor may be all that is necessary, or if particularly stubborn, a dermatologist. ...Read more

Small bump on bottom of ear is a tad red it was hard like a pimple like bump but no puss or anything to come out of it what cause this will go away?

Developing a boil: Chances are u had a small bite or injury there & it has become infected. It may turn into a small boil/abscess or ur own resistance may nip it and it may heal on its own in a few days. Topical antibiotics will probably not help as the skin is intact. Nothing much to worry unless the pain keeps increasing, the skin gets redder and there are streaks of infection and redness spreading from that bump. ...Read more
