Large red spot under skin on forehead when nervous or hot. Forms as the same shape each time and also appears when blood rushes to forehead. Any idea?

Large red spot under skin on forehead when nervous or hot. Forms as the same shape each time and also appears when blood rushes to forehead. Any idea?

Nevus flammeus: What you describe is a vascular birthmark. It is due to a congenital (since birth) malformation of capillaries (small blood vessels) under the skin. These usually fade or become less obvious with age but can persist. The redness becomes more obvious with increase blood flow to the area. Treatment is only needed for cosmetic reasons. The pulse dye or vascular laser is the preferred way to treat. ...Read more

Skin at hairline on forehead sensitive when I make ponytail or brush. Now has little red blood spot, but no blood, not when I pick either. What is it?

Skin at hairline on forehead sensitive when I make ponytail or brush. Now has little red blood spot, but no blood, not when I pick either. What is it?

Make sure you aren't: Over processing hair and thinking on this. Meaning, not coloring or tinting hair & not protecting hairline when doing it. This can cause a localized folliculitis, which is like a contact dermatitis caused by coloring hair products. Use organic lip balm to protect skin vs. Lotion or Vaseline. Also do not overthink this as the solution is simple. Remove the cause if you can. Also use organic shampoo. ...Read more

Why do long, red streaks-maybe following blood vessels-often appear usually upon waking in the am, on my forehead but fade after several minutes?

Why do long, red streaks-maybe following blood vessels-often appear usually upon waking in the am, on my forehead but fade after several minutes?

Curious: You sleep on your stomach or your back? If you sleep on your stomach it could be the contact point between pillow and your head. Otherwise it could be that you are straining during the sleep possibly having obstructive sleep apnea which is leading to the engorged blood vessel you see. ...Read more

My 6 month old learned how to pull his self up he fell and hit his head I don't see any bumps but he has a few red spots that look like blood under sc?

Head Injury: This was a bump from a position of sitting and is unlikely to cause a bad injury. Observe his behavior and follow his usual routine. The red spots are likely the beginnings of a bruise. Risk factors would be a loss of consciousness and/or repeated vomiting. Have him seen for any concerns. All the best. ...Read more

What can cause pain in top of head, vomiting bright red blood in a 59 yr old 214 lb male with hi blood pressure?

What can cause pain in top of head, vomiting bright red blood in a 59 yr old 214 lb male with hi blood pressure?

A bit much: Vomting can cause a headache and a headache can cause vomiting. But bright red blood while probably benign can be an important tear in the esophagus and should be checked out quickly. I hope your are 6'4" or have a 34" or smaller waist for that weight. See a good internist pdq. ...Read more

I'm 6 weeks pregnant. I had a tiny speck of red blood when I wiped last night. The size of a pen head. Is this okay? I haven't had more yet.

I'm 6 weeks pregnant. I had a tiny speck of red blood when I wiped last night. The size of a pen head. Is this okay? I haven't had more yet.

If not more, OK: The amt of blood you report is not suggestive of a problem.

Just remember, everything you eat, breath, and drink potentially goes in the fetal circulation.
I always try to emphasize that with my patients, then if something does occur--you don't have to say-
"only if."

Good luck with your PG. I've always thought a delivery was the only time one is really happy to be in the hospital!! ...Read more

I have had a head ache for 6 days in a row now. My face gets steaming hot and red. Could it be blood pressure? Can blood pressure peak in the am?

I have had a head ache for 6 days in a row now. My face gets steaming hot and red. Could it be blood pressure? Can blood pressure peak in the am?

Blood pressure: Most of the time, high blood pressure does not give any symptoms. Some people may feel some headache or dizziness. Some do get nose bleeds. May feel tired or just "not right". Our blood pressure is usually the highest first thing in the morning. Should get checked to see what may be giving you the problem. ...Read more

Red spot, Appears to be like a blood spot or flesh spot just on the inside of my penis head, just when I open up my meatus it can be seen. Painless?

Here are some...: Just watch, wait, and see how this red spot may progress & evolve. Clinically, it most likely represents a tiny benign vessel-related tumor called hemangioma; if free of discomfort and not change much in size, leave it alone. Otherwise, seek evaluation and counseling. To get the things for good care done correctly, go to http://www. Formefirst. Com/eNewsletter06.html. ...Read more

Woke up and found a small soft lump red, fill with blood? Minor pain to touch. On left side of my penis head under the foreskin what is it? Treatment?

Blood blister/vessic: Havee your private physician examine it. In all probability it is a benign "blood blister" caused by friction or sexual activity; however if not resolved on its own within 1 week get it checked by a physician. Do not try to open this blister yourself. ...Read more

My 2month baby having cold and cough infection from 7 days and now she is passing little clot of blood with mucus and can see red spot all over fore head is this worried full but here no one giving her medicine could you give me guidance.?

Need more info: What you describe sounds like she is coughing so hard that she has what is called "peticheae" (tiny bleeds into skin) on her forehead. It needs to be evaluated by your doctor right away. Pertussis infection comes to mind, which would be concerning at her age. Seek medical attention and/or go to er. If she is breathing heavy, is not feeding well or "looks sick" you should go to er tonight. ...Read more

I have pcos and have had head ache for 2 days. Now I find thick clear mucus-like discharge with bright red blood drops...Very little though. Help?

Unrelated problems: Pcos is not related to headaches or vaginal discharge. Those problems would need separate evaluation. Pc os certainly does cause irregular periods though. Vaginal discharge could indicate yeast, bacterial vaginosis, or a sexually transmitted disease. ...Read more

Pressure & pain both sides of head & above eyes. Pressure at bridge of nose. Red blood in left upper nostril when insert tissue otherwise nose clear?

Sinusitis: Diagnosis is hard to be done without examination but possible sinusitis can cause all this. Some sinuses are closed in and do not drain so you will not see a colored nasal discharge. You would feel the pressure in the sinuses though and because of the nasal congestion can get the blood.
it seems severe enough that you should go see your physician ...Read more

Under the head of my circumcised penis there is like a swollen red lump it hurts when I touch it I have discharge and blood comes out after I peeing?

Under the head of my circumcised penis there is like a swollen red lump it hurts when I touch it I have discharge and blood comes out after I peeing?

Get that looked at: You need to see a doctor. If you have been sexually active, and that includes blow jobs, then this is undoubtedly an STD, or even more than one. If you have never had sex, then these symptoms, at your age (24yrs) are very unusual but most likely still represent some sort of infection. This is an appropriate problem to take to the ER if you can't get into a doctor or public health clinic right away ...Read more

Had small red bump with white head in pubic hair area. Shaved a few days ago. Popped and thickish white pus and a little blood no burning or itch. Sti?

Ingrown hair: Ingrown hairs are common in the pubic area, created by shaving or the friction from underwear. They can appear as pimple like bumps, occassionally with pus. Applying warm compresses and washing twice daily with a warm soapy washcloth should help the site drain and heal faster. See your doctor if symptoms do not improve with these measures. STI would be unlikely. ...Read more

Blood red, painful, burning, skin. Blurry eye sight, vomiting, extreme head ache. Are these severe symptoms of a reaction from niacin? How long will it last?

Possibly: Niacin commonly causes flushing (hot feeling, red skin, tingling) and headaches after taking, particularly doses greater than 1000 mg. The best thing to do is stop taking it for a couple days to see if the symptoms go away. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Exam: It is possible that your IUD has shifted but an exam would be necessary in order to know for sure and would be an opportunity to look for other causes if this isn't the reason you are having the bleeding and your partner had pain in his penis with intercourse. Hope this helps. ...Read more
