I was very sunburnt a few weeks ago. Several moles have appeared along with a large itchy bump where it was most raw and burnt. Should I see a doctor?

I don't think: you developed these moles with possible melanoma as a result of your sunburn this time, but there is probably something you can do about your sunburn even now. And there is some concern whether or not you had these moles from previous sunburns. So, yes, you should see a doctor. ...Read more

Allergy to bactrim, I was using an albuterol sulfate inhaler. I have muscle aches, large itchy bumps, and abdominal pain. These two allergies related?

Allergy to bactrim, I was using an albuterol sulfate inhaler. I have muscle aches, large itchy bumps, and abdominal pain. These two allergies related?

No: Sulfa in Bactrim is entirely different from sulfate which is rather inert. Muscle spasm may result from albuterol especially when used above the recommended dose or frequency but would not account for the itchy bumps. I suspect that your problem is likely from a viral infection but do consult your doctor if the problem gets worse or persists for more than a few days. ...Read more

Ingrown Hair: Often an ingrown hair will go away on its own. If it doesn't go away, an ingrown hair can become infected, permanently darken the skin, or leave behind a scar, especially if you've been scratching or picking at it. If an ingrown hair is bothering you or has become infected, your doctor can make a small cut in your skin with a sterile needle or scalpel to release it or prescribe medicine. ...Read more

Folliculitis: Small itchy red bumps that then develop a white head and appear in crops may be an infection of the hair follicles called folliculitis. Folliculitis is commonly caused by bacteria on the skin. Warm compresses may be applied to the rash but often it will resolve on it's own. Avoid shaving the affected region until the rash clears. ...Read more

Quick q - I was outdoors grilling fully clothed and covered at night , found lots of round quarter size or larger red bumps that are itchy help :/ ty?

Allergic reaction: Either from an insect bite or from the food that you ate. Did you use any Bug Repellent spray? Rx Benadryl or Claritin like drug. I hope you did take shower to wash off any contamination. Also can apply OTC cortisone cream f they dod not respond to OTC medicines, it is time to see the doctor. ...Read more

I have an itchy bump within my pubic hair. It is about half a centimetre large. It is hard and doesn't produce any puss. What could it be?

I have an itchy bump within my pubic hair. It is about half a centimetre large. It is hard and doesn't produce any puss. What could it be?

Cyst: It is probably a seborrheic (coming from oil glands) or epidermal inclusion cyst, both benign lesions. It is probably itchy because of surrounding dry skin. It doesn't sound like the worrisome things: cancer/infection. Both of these would likely have open or irregular surfaces, be draining, or be darkly pigmented. You can put some Aquaphor or Vaseline on it. Still questions? Have your doc check:) ...Read more
