I have small benign sweat gland tumors. Is there any way to get rid of them or something that I can use on them?

Unclear to me: There are no benign tumors of the sweat glands that I know off. You are dealing with something else...May be a heat rash. Only a good dermatologist can help you to sort it out.

How to get rid of blocked sweat glands on the penis?

How to get rid of blocked sweat glands on the penis?

Blocked sweat gland?: Possibly blocked sebaceous gland, not sweat. But only general advice can be given without a photo or physical exam. Top 2 photos are non-STDs: Fordyce spots (sebum which can be extricated by M.D. or left alone), Infected hair follicle (plucked and kept clean). Bottom 2 photos are STDs (HPV and Molluscum) to be evaluated by your MD so s/he can rule out other STDs and council you for prevention.

Underarm swollen sweat glands: what are the best means by which to prevent them & to treat them if they occur? What type of dr treats them?

Start w/ PCP: There are some different considerations here, so i'd get an eval by your primary care doc so s/he can point you in the right direction if more eval/tx needed. Sometimes this is an infectious type process, but if the "swollen sweat glands" are actually lymph nodes you'll need more eval.

Can you get an enlarged sweat gland in the armpit? Feels like a lump under the surface of the skin. How long should it stay there?

Can you get an enlarged sweat gland in the armpit? Feels like a lump under the surface of the skin. How long should it stay there?

Yes but...: This could be plugged hair follicle, but this usually presents as a painful bump on the surface of the skin, although it can sometimes feel like it is under the skin. This could also be an enlarged lymph node. Your doctor should be able to examine you and explain if this is anything to be concerned about.

Could TMJ joint pinch the nerves & blood vessels, preventing sweat glands on chin from secreting sweat and prevent nutrients to chin?

Could TMJ joint pinch the nerves & blood vessels, preventing sweat glands on chin from secreting sweat and prevent nutrients to chin?

Probably not: It is possible to impede nerves and blood flow, but what you are expressing sounds more like a neurologic problem than a TMJ problem. I would recommend you check with your dentist or ENT to have them do a work up and find why you are having the problems you express. It could even be trigeminal neuralgia, but seek competent help to find your answers.

Was given bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for sweat gland infection in arm pit two days ago. Chance I can get aseptic meningitis or bad reaction? Please reply

Was given bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for sweat gland infection in arm pit two days ago. Chance I can get aseptic meningitis or bad reaction? Please reply

Minimal: It is likely you would have had any serious reaction or developed some other complications by now. I hope the infection is clearing up and that you are feeling better. If you have any questions about your ongoing symptoms let your doctor or health tap know. Your pharmacist will be a good resource for your concerns.

Is there a sweat gland that looks like bumps on your testical sac?

Is there a sweat gland that looks like bumps on your testical sac?

Yes and common...: Hyperactive sebaceous glands of hair follicles do appear wherever hairs exist although the degree and number may widely vary among all people, which seems linked with genetic factors so nothing needs to be done or should be done except occasional superinfection like pimples on face. More? Seek pro-evaluation and counseling timely.
