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

I have this large itchy bump in the crevice of my thigh. It's not hurting its just very itchy and its leaking like a clear fluid. I am not sexually active but I'm still concerned as to what this may be.

Folliculitis?: No STD does this sort of thing; even if you were sexually active, that wouldn't be a concern. Most likely it is some sort of superficial infection like folliculitis; or possibly a superficial fungal infection. . If it has happened before or there are several such lesions, you might have a chronic condition called hidradenitis suppurativa. See a doctor for diagnosis and proper treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

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

Allergy to bactrim, (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) 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 (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) 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

Hypersensitivity: Your skin is in a state of hypersensitivity to pressures on it causing hivelike swellings and angioedema reactions. There is something of an allergic reaction causing this hypersensitivity. Taking antihistamines like benadryl(causes drowsiness) or claritin (loratadine) may help. See an allergist for evaluation. ...Read more

Pet name?: I can only venture to guess what your BF's duck could be- hope that it does not quack :). You will need to tell us more about where on the duck these bumps are present . Question is why is your BF not asking this question. Nonetheless he should probably get this checked out by his doctor. ...Read more

Mosquito (I think) bite swelled really large & hot to the touch. 1wk later swelling is down but area is now covered in small itchy/painful bumps. Bad?

Mosquito (I think) bite swelled really large & hot to the touch. 1wk later swelling is down but area is now covered in small itchy/painful bumps. Bad?

Skeeter syndrome: This is likely from an allergic reaction to mosquito saliva. The treatment is symptomatic-topical anesthetic or NSAID for pain and topical anti-itch agent for itching. If no cellulitis , antibiotic is not indicated. The lesions will eventually subside. www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/mosquito.../con-20032350 ...Read more
