Red itchy hard painful bump on calf. Possibly ingrown hair. Pulled tiny sharp hair out, hurt worse. Applied bag balm. Bump smaller now, but I limp.?

Red itchy hard painful bump on calf. Possibly ingrown hair. Pulled tiny sharp hair out, hurt worse. Applied bag balm. Bump smaller now, but I limp.?

Doctor can check: A bump from an ingrown hair on the lower leg should not cause an amount of pain that would make a person limp. There could be something more serious there, and one's primary care doctor can examine the area to see what is going on. One possibility is a skin cyst (epidermal inclusion cyst) that has gotten inflamed or infected... those usually need to be opened or removed. ...Read more

I often get a red bump on my left buttock. Always near the same spot. It's hard and very itchy. Could it be something in my blood?

Recurrent skin bump: Anything in your blood would be more generalized and occur over a larger surface. This recurrent bump may be an inclusion cyst or ingrown hair or blocked pore. If it is tender, or fluctuant it may need to be drained or surgically removed. I recommend seeing a dermatologist when the bump is present. ...Read more

Yes: If you are exposed to the item to which you are allergic, the symptoms will persist, even for years. It would be prudent to consult your doctor.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

What to do if I have body escama and it really sucks its embarrassing and I was wondering if anyone new how to get rid of the itchy ugly red bump?

Eczema: That's the actual diagnosis, right? There's no reason it cannot be managed. Often it responds to something as simple as over-the-counter hydrocortisone under saran wrap. There are a variety of prescription Rx's; I'd ask about tacrolimus cream. If access to health care is a problem, phone a nearby medical school. Best wishes. ...Read more

Steroids+moisturizer: The best treatment is steroid cream (hydrocortisone) and moisturizers; you can use over the counter hydrocortisone, but your physician can prescribe a stronger one, which will work better. In addition, I would use moisturizing soaps or non-soap cleansers. Humidifiers may help also by moisturizing the air. Eczema may also improve by avoiding allergens, so you may want to get tested... ...Read more
