Sebaceous cyst: It sounds like a sebaceous cyst. This happens when the glands that produce oil on your skin do not drain properly and creates a small pocket. It can be expressed out with out pain. You will need to watch it in case it gets infected, then it will turn red and can hurt. This is not a serious condition.

Zinc oxide: Chafing or rubbing of the thighs can result in various skin issues including the development of bullae with serous (inflammatory fluid). I would reccomend you apply a form of barrier cream. There are many types but many of them are thick, white and formulated with zinc oxide. The zinc oxide creams with vitamin a and vitamin d will also help healing ...Read more

Abscess/boil: It sounds like an abscess or boil as described and certainly the definitive treatment is incision and drainage, with antibiotics. At times, there may be a palpable cystic "core" to the abscess/boil and a more definitive removal may be required by a surgeon (preferably plastics on the face) to assure core eradication so the issues heals best and does not return. Best wishes. ...Read more

"Goose-egg": This is a bruise- called a "goose-egg" on the head. Because there is not much room between the scalp and the skull, any swelling pushes outward, instead of inside the tissue as a bruise would do. Put an ice pack on to decrease the swelling and pain. Watch your child for any signs of vomiting, confusion, loss of coordination, or other concerns- call your doctor if these occur. ...Read more

I have been breaking out with these bumps all over my body in different places. A bump will appear and get bigger and come to a head and start draining a clear liquid. This all happens over a period of a week or so. Do you have any idea what it could be?

That: That is a concerning history there are multiple skin conditions that can cause this. Do you have a history of MRSA (methicillin resistant staph aureus)? You need to have this evaluated and that is very important. If you develop redness, red streaks, swelling or fever, or any shortness of breath, then you must be seen as an emergency. ...Read more

Abdo. Wall hernia: Could be an "umbilical or para-umbilical" hernia if located at or next to navel. Small "ventral" hernia if above or below navel. This is a small outpouching of your peritoneum (abdominal wall lining) between your rectus muscles (abs). Slight risk of small loop of bowel getting stuck in it (incarcerating), which would be an emergency. Suggest consult your dr or a general surgeon. ...Read more

I had a mass removed from my back and in follow up visit they have to removed blood and liquid acummulated around my internal stitches, why is that?

Mass: You may have developed a seroma or hematoma that the surgeon thought would impede healing; by lessening the pressure of the fluid (blood) there will be less tension on the suture sites and healing can better take place. They should just ensure that there is no underlying infection. ...Read more

I got my nose pierced a few weeks ago and a lump has appeared above it, it is red and was filled with liquid but it popped, what is it, what do I do?

I got my nose pierced a few weeks ago and a lump has appeared above it, it is red and was filled with liquid but it popped, what is it, what do I do?

Nose piercing: Hello, this localized inflammation was probably an infection in the adjacent area. The nose has bacteria in it and it is impossible to sterilize the inside of the nose. I am hoping and assuming you went to a reputable individual for your piercing. Since the fluid was expressed when it "popped", there is probably little to do now except for cleaning as instructed and apply an antibiotic ointment. ...Read more
