Red bump on pubic area and not painful. Noticed it and red rash on chest and shoulder for a week that's itchy. What could it be? Please help?

See your doctor: Red bumps on your pubic area need to be seen by a physician because they usually need treatment. Red itchy rashes are also important to treat. They can range from infections which are also contagious such as strep or herpes to skin conditions such as allergies and eczema. Please do not delay getting a diagnosis and proper treatment.

I am having rash on arm, chest and shoulders, skin redness or irritation and skin rash (episodic itchiness, uniform tiny bumps, skin colored mostly). A nurse said it was allergic reaction & gave me centraben cream. Can allergy last more than a week?

Yes: If you are exposed to the item to which you are allergic, the symptoms will persist, even for years. It would be prudent to consult your doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine

Small itchy red bump on chest?

Small itchy red bump on chest?

Need for evaluation: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you. What is the size, distribution, state of surrounding skin, vesicle formation, any systemic disorders? If the rash does not subside in a couple of days, it would be prudent to consult your doctor.

Son has Red bump on chest hurts and hot to the touch my mom popped it and said pus came out im getting over mrsa. Could he have contracted mrsa???

Son has Red bump on chest hurts and hot to the touch my mom popped it and said pus came out im getting over mrsa. Could he have contracted mrsa???

Possible: The concern isn't so much that your son has MRSA (methicillin resistant staph aureus), but that he has a significant skin infection. MRSA has increased in incidence significantly, though is quite treatable in cases like this. Just as serious would be a strep or MSSA (methicillin sensitive...) infection. Take your son to the doctor ASAP. Clean it with warm water and mild soap. Do not squeeze!

Needs examination: It is difficult to comment without seeing a picture of the lump. It could be something simple like a small sweat gland cyst which can get infected once in a while. It could also be something more concerning such as skin cancer. It is important that you see your doctor asap to get the area examined. A biopsy may need to be taken to determine the cause.

2 yr old with 104.7 fever yesterday, 100 fever today and now has a small red bump rash on his chest, all over legs and top of feet. What is this?

2 yr old with 104.7 fever yesterday, 100 fever today and now has a small red bump rash on his chest, all over legs and top of feet. What is this?

Will get better: Many common viruses can cause bumpy red rashes all over. However, a toddler with a rash after a high fever breaks may very well have ROSEOLA, or exanthem subitem, which is identified by this appearance after high fever. It is common and goes away by itself. Your child should be getting better and behaving normally. Best wishes!

There's this red bump on the underside of my breast. How dangerous is this?

Probably nothing: Reddish bumps under the breast are likely normal extra nipples or nipple tissue. These are very frequent. If it's been there since birth or puberty and hasn't changed, probably nothing to worry about. However, if it's new, go see a dermatologist or your regular doctor to be sure.
