I noticed my scalp sometimes smells sour/sweaty. Also at the back of my scalp there are three bumps which feel very sore. What should I do?

Folliculitis: I would use a shampoo that kills micro-organisms, such as Head & Shoulders zinc pyrithione shampoo. This might fight odor, and it could also help prevent the inflamed follicles ("folliculitis") that is likely causing the bumps on the scalp. ...Read more

Hi, I have a question about little small, red bumps on my tongue back witch smells bad, also from the other side I have like wrats, is it normal?

Maybe normal: I'm guessing you are seeing normal circumvallate papillae -- a row of large bumps across the back of the tongue that can appear wart-like. They are entirely normal. Google it for photos to compare. If those photos don't match, best to see a doctor or your dentist. Whatever they are, I doubt they are the cause of the odor you have noticed. ...Read more

Yellowish spit: You may have a bacterial, fungal, or viral infection. Smell may be sulfur. Bumps on tongue, by the way, may be normal papillae. Please see your Dentist. Consultation with an ENT may be required also. ...Read more

I am experiencing a metallic taste, dry mouth, raised bumps, back of tongue is white, and extremely bad breath that I can't smell. But offends others.

Halitosis: Bad breath can be caused by many different factors, including sinus infections, periodontal problems, smoking, cavities, acid reflux, and your diet. Address all of these possibilities with your dentist and physician, and I'm confident that your problem will at least be minimized, and hopefully eradicated. ...Read more

BV? STD? Herpes?: Could be various problems, maybe more than thing wrong. Discharge w/ strong odor suggest bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of mostly normal bacteria; or trichomonas, an STD. But these don't usually itch or cause bumps or cysts. Herpes is possible, also gonorrhea, chlamydia, or other STDs. Get checked ASAP, sooner the better for accurate diagnosis and effective treatment, esp. if it's herpes. ...Read more

Vulva bump: There are several types of bumps that can occur on the vulva. If your bump is not painful, try sitting in warm soapy water 2 times each day for 15 minutes, and the bump will probably resolve within a week. These bumps may be blockages of lubricating glands. The strong pee has nothing to do with the bump. Increase your water intake. ...Read more

Needs evaluation: The vaginal odor you are experiencing may be a sign of bacterial vaginosis but BV typically does not include bumps or lesions. This could be a viral wart, ingrown hair or other problem. if the problem persists, you should have the "bump" evaluated to determine if further treatment is needed. ...Read more

Hi have very faded pink - light brown rash well below nipple on boob . No bumps , doesn't itch but It also smells under there . Ideas? How to treat?

Hard to say: Without seeing the rash but could be fungal. Try keeping it dry and using an over the counter fungal cream like younger in the athletes foot isle. Lamiail or generic can be used twice a day or lotrimin, (clotrimazole) generic is clotrazol needs to be used three times a day. Use a cotton cloth under your breast to keep the skin from touching other skin after washing well. If that does want work visit the doctor ...Read more

Cyst or abscess: "Smells bad" implies there is drainage, right? This sounds like some sort of cyst or abscess -- maybe just a skin boil if involving your labia major, or Bartholin's gland infection if near the vaginal opening, or others. It may need an incision to drain pus, an antibiotic, or both. See your doctor right away. ...Read more

I have a rash with bumps under my armpit. It does spit out puss it also smells really bad.  It speed down my chest to my thighs and genatiles. ?

A possibility: Sound like a typical description of hidradenitis superativa, or persistent abscess-like infections usually under the armpit. Know that smoking is a common exacerbant. Multiple strategies exist to treat, including surgery, and so I would recommend seeing a physician sooner than later. Good luck! ...Read more
