I have a little black bump on my head, about 3 mm in diameter. Didn't always have it. What could it be?

I have a little black bump on my head, about 3 mm in diameter. Didn't always have it. What could it be?

Hard to guess: A dark brown or a black 3mm bump could be a mole. It would have to be looked at to see what it really is. One can start with her primary care provider, who can then refer to a Dermatologist if the bump looks suspicious or unusual. Warts usually are not that dark. Blackheads (closed comedones) usually are dark only in the center. A video consultation with our Concierge Dermatologists can help too. ...Read more

Bumps on head: Two things come mind right off: 1) shingles. If they are little blisters, and your skin feels tingly, go see a doctor right away for anti-viral medicine, which has to be started within 48 hrs of seeing the shingles rash. Or 2) Sebaceous cysts. Blocked oil glands that fill, can get infected, often need to be drained in the office. See a dr if they get worse or seem like something else entirely. ...Read more
