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, 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

Small red itchy bump came up then got larger developed white head then bright red and painful. Got black crus.Then several more came up in same area.

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
