Bed bugs: Bed bugs strike in linear streaks and cause a lot of itching. It is usually not painful. Spider bites could cause more pain but usually they don't cause that many bites in a row. I'm betting on bed bugs and recommend you check you bed for small black insects. You may see blood marks on your sheets too where the bugs were squashed as you slept. If anyone shared your bed they may have it too. ...Read more

Depends: How old is your baby? The first few months of life babies can get many different lesions, most of which are considered normal and expected to go away if left alone. If it is red at the base, growing in size/number, appears tender (hurts if touched) then it needs to be evaluated by his doctor. http://www.babycenter.com/101_visual-guide-to-childrens-rashes-and-skin-conditions_10332129.bc ...Read more

Also consider Lipoma: If it is red, sore, and increasing in size over time- Dr Yetimyan is absolutely right. A boil or abscess will generally worsen until it is drained. If it has no color change, and is not painful, it could be a lipoma. Purple bluish lumps can be lymphangiomas. These last two are not concerning.. There are a few other things to consider, but it would depend on it's characteristics. ...Read more

Cyst or abscess: This sounds like an inflamed cyst or an abscess. A cyst is a plugged hair follicle that gets filled with keratin (dead skin) debris. This can enlarge and become inflamed/infected. An abscess is a collection of pus, usually from an infection. They commonly occur in areas of friction (like the groin). I recommend evaluation by a dermatologist in case you require drainage or antibiotics. ...Read more
