If the lump is tender or warm or draining then get it looked at. You should have this looked at to make sure that is what this is. There are other things it could be. ...Read more

Get evaluated prompt: It could run from something totally benign to a disaster. Have a dermatologist look at that as soon as possible. If he suspects malignant melanoma then it has to be cut out. It could be a lipoma (fat cells) not bad at all. You don't want to dilly-dally on this. Do it this week! It's not a heart attack but you cannot neglect this! ...Read more

Dermograghism: See a dermatologist. Meanwhile you can take a daily antihistamine. The best one for this is Zyrtec. The generic, cetirizine, is just the same only cheaper. This is a physical urticaria, not allergy. When the skin is stroked, mast cells release histamine, causing itchy, elevated areas in the shape of the contact. Thus you can write messages on your skin. ...Read more

My joints in my wrists, knees, feet, a bit in my neck/back, and are sorswollen. My skin itches. I have a lump behind my ear. Blood wk ok. What is it?

Aches: Could be a lot of things. The itch and lump may not be related which confuses matters. Would be useful to know what labs you've had that were normal. Viral illnesses can do weird things to adults, include make your joints swell and your skin itch. I'd be concerned if you were having fevers or losing weight unexpectedly. ...Read more
