Angioma?: Red bumps that bleed easily are usually angiomas — small benign tumors made of blood vessels. But other things can present that way, including some types of skin cancer, so check with your doctor or a dermatologist. If it's bleeding that easily, it should be removed anyway. ...Read more

My 4yr old has a small red spot on the inner side of the arm. Not raised, not itchy. Looks like a bruise but too small to be?

Possible bite.: Depending on how long it has been there, it could still be a bruise, although if it is bright red, it sounds like a broken capillary (small blood vessel) or possibly spider bite. To be sure, you should show his doctor. If there are many of them appearing, you should call his doctor and/or take him to the emergency room ASAP, as that could be a sign of a more serious illness. ...Read more

Dry skin?: From your description, the problem appears to be what is called keratosis pilaris. Skin tags have a stem. I would suggest that you try applying a moisturizer on your body within 3 mins after bathing and perhaps another application with or without bathing 12 hrs later and see if you can see improvement after about a week. If not, consult a dermatologist. Avoid scented or anti-bacterial soap. ...Read more

I got bit by a spider 3 days ago on my upper arm, its swollen, painful, itchy and red. Feels like its on fire sometimes, what should I do?

Did u see the spider: Did you see the kind of spider that bit you? Black widows and brown recluse spiders can cause serious bite reactions. I don't know what the circumstances of the bite were. You've received some good self-care suggestions, but your description of "on fire" and being swollen and painful makes me suggest you let a physician look at it today. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have a pea sized, smooth, purple/pink lump on my upper arm that has been there for a while. No pain or itchiness. What is it and how to I remove it?

See a derm: If it has been there for a long time and it has not undergone any changes and it's not painful then in all probability it is a non-worrisome lesion. It might be something called a dermatofibroma. However, with this said I would definitely see a dermatologist to confirm its benign nature. ...Read more

If this was 'secondary' syphilis, you would have first have had a chancre- a large boil type thing where 'contact' may have been. ...Read more
