A few require a biopsy. Usually gone anyway! ...Read more

I have a painful pimple like bump with white head on my elbow. What could it be? Could laying on my bed or applying pressure on my elbow at my desk cause it?

Yes: This could be as simple as a pimple that has not come to surface yet. Constant pressure or irritation to the area can cause this. If you are having fevers, chills or limited range of motion of your elbow joint, a more serious infection could be developing and you should seek medical attention. If not, a warm compress and avoiding the pressure to the area should be helpful. ...Read more

I have a pimple like bump with a white head.  It seemed to look different with in minutes after taking a shower. Could this be herpes or just a pimple?

Pimple: Where is the bump? Is it full of fluid or is it firm? Does it recur in the same place? Herpes occurs in clusters at point of contact (oral or genital) or along nerves (dermatomal). When you take a shower, you are changing your body temperature temporarily which alters the blood supply & color of the skin. Your bump is most likely an acne comedone (whitehead).
