I think I have one nodular pimple on my chin. It hurts to move my mouth. Is there any way to make it go away faster? Should I see a dermatologist?

Sounds like a "boil": Try what is called spoon bathing. Wrap some material like gauze round a spoon to make a swab. Then dip it into boiling water and allow the steam from the "swab" to drift over the "boil" to provide heat. Be careful not to touch the skin with the heated "swab" and do not scald with the steam. It should be felt as a gentle heat applied to the "boil". It might come to a head this way and drain the pus.

Hard to say...: Without being able to see the lesion you are talking about it is impossible to say what it is. I would recommend that you have it seen by a physician so that they can give you a proper diagnosis and treatment (if any is necessary)

It depends: Many benign tumors can be labelled a pimple. Some of these are blocked glands (sweat glands/sebacious glands etc). What to do about it? Depends on if it is painful/tender or painless and if it is changing in color or size. Redness implies inflammation, this would subside in 1-2 weeks, nothing else needs to be done. Anything that is persistent, bothers you or growing can be removed by your doctor.

Cyst: It sounds like you have a cyst. A cyst is a pimple that grows in the deeper skin. It fills up kind of like a water balloon. These don't turn bad but may get infected. If it hurts, you should see a dermatologist to have it treated.

I have a very little pimple on the side of the head of my penis. Is it normal? It does not hurt at all.

Probably not normal.: Depending on its duration the pimple may be related to infection, viral, fungal, or bacterial, or to trauma. What is the history of sexual contacts? See a doctor.

Boil: A boil is a localized infection in the skin that begins as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm, hard, and more tender. Eventually, the center of the boil softens and becomes filled with infection-fighting white blood cells from the bloodstream to eradicate the infection. This collection of white blood cells, bacteria, and proteins is known as pus. You need antibiotics.

My 14 year old has a painful pimple on chin and it has deepened into the inside of mouth. It hurts when she chews & her chin hurts. How can I help her?

Fistula: Since it hurts when she chews, she could have an infected tooth which has developed a fistula which means the infection is draining out through her her chin or into her mouth. You should take her to your dentist or oral surgeon immediately rather than trying any home remedies.

Red dot that looks like a pimple on the head of my penis. It doesn't hurt or itch. Could this be Herpes? I'm afraid. Please help.

Cherry angioma: Probably not herpes. Lack of important detail makes precise answer impossible. See Dr for confirmation. Ascorbic acid, biotin, and acai are all useless scams, a waste of money. Those who sell these to gullible people are con men cheating you out of your money.

I have these pimple like bumps in the back of my head. I've peeled them off & they come back. They bleed for no reason and they hurt when?

Skin infection: This sounds like a skin infection which is common in that area of the head. Don't scratch or peel the skin eruptions. Clean it with soap and water, apply Some antiseptic cream on it (no hydrocortisone!) and see your PCP soon. This infection can be very resistant and can rapidly spread.

Pimple: Warm compresses to aid in its own natural healing. Popping it will only make it more red and angry and also risk spreading the bacteria of the pimple. You can also dry it a bit by blotting gently with an alcohol pad.
