What are the little red bumps on the babies scalp, they look like there filled with blood?

Hemangiomas?: It is difficult to tell what your baby has without further detail/exam, but my suspicion is that he/she has some hemangiomas (collection of blood vessels). They often can enlarge/more numerous during the first year or so and slowly subside, often completely gone by 5 yrs of age. If baby has been seen regularly by doc, I would assume that it is hemangioma and no need 2 worry. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

I have little red bumps on my penis head and it just itches and ive had for about 3 days. What could this be from?

Here are some. ..: What you described is acute so it is related either with acute infection / inflammation or with physical / allergy-related irritation. But, regardless of its cause, the essence of care is same with keeping the affected area as clean, dry, & ventilated as possible (of course, with washing/drying) plus gingerly using antifungal + steroid cream 1-2 times daily of ...Read more

My 4 year old has itchy little red bumps on the side of her face and arms and feet. I believe it's chicken pot does she need to go see the doctor?

Not immediately: If your 4 yr old is upto date with immunisations he/she should have had a chicken pox shot at age 1 and age 4 and is unlikely to have chicken pox. Ry Benadryl (diphenhydramine) orally and apply calamine lotion. Chicken pox is a viral infection and is preceded by a low garage fever, not feeling well and then a rash with clear fluid hitch becomes scabbed. The rash generally stats on the chest and trunk. ...Read more

They are often itchy/tender and scratched at producing a small scab. They tend to come and go. There is no permanent cure, but I often treat flares with antibiotics. I would go see a dermatologist for a definitive diagnosis and treatment options. ...Read more

I have little skin olored dots on my face as well as red bumps that look cystic, I don't have health insurance and I think I desperately need to c dr?

Couple of options: It is hard to tell you exactly what you have based on a vague description without a picture. It sounds like it could be milia, rosacea, acne, syringomas, etc. If you're concerned, you can find a free clinic around you, although wait times for dermatology followup there might be long. You can also call a few docs and tell them your situation. A visit may be cheaper than you think. ...Read more

My child (4) has 7 tiny red bumps on her face they started 3 days ago and slowly a few more each day there is none inside her mouth or anywhere else?

Have the doc see it.: Children get so many types of rashes and skin lesions. They can be due to allergies, illness, or any number of things. Think if there have been any new foods, soaps, shampoos, detergents, etc in her life. Best is to have her pediatrician check her out to make sure that it is not a rash associated with any other type of condition. Many times, a rash's origin cannot be traced. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Small red bumps that appeared out of nowhere today on the head on my penis and when I pull back the foreskin. They don't really hurt or itch?

Bumps on penis: It would be useful to know, if you have any other signs or symptoms along with these red dots like itching, fever, swelling of head of penis (glans penis). The shape and contour of the said red dots is also important. Also as per you description, you noticed them after having sex. This may indicated a sexually transmitted infection.
