Baby acne, contact: Without knowing more about the age of your baby and exactly how the rash looks, is difficult to say for sure. If baby under 3 months old, is likely it is "baby acne", a normal newborn condition where the changes in hormone levels in the newborn cause the glands to secrete and cause pimples. If more a rough/red sensitive rash, could be soaps or irritants baby's cheeks are coming into contact with. ...Read more

My baby has red bumps all over face and body, they look like pimples. He is 8 weeks old. What could this be?

Newborn acne: Newborns develop baby acne around 2 weeks of age and it peaks around 6 weeks, usually gone by 12. If your baby is in this age group, it could be newborn acne. Your baby's pores are sensitive to changes in hormone levels (just like during the teen years) - so all those Estrogens they were exposed to during pregnancy are suddently gone - and boom - breakout! No treatment needed - be patient. ...Read more

Eat healthy: Eat a diet with at least 80 grams of complete (animal or soy) protein every day and lots of fresh vegetables and fruits with some whole grains and perform regular exercise for good health. Don't worry about being too skinny if you have good energy and eat right. Try over-the counter acne medicines such as benzoyle peroxide or the Proactive products. If this isn't enough, see your doctor. ...Read more

Probably Acne "Cyst": Arleen, This is probably an acne cyst, which is a ruptured, painful bump where an oil gland ruptured below the skin. The body walls this off and makes a filled cavity called a cyst. Often this is serious and can scar, so you should see a dermatologist for help. Possibly, an injection of the cyst with a dilute cortisone would help. ...Read more

Very big red bump in groin area. There is no head (like a pimple) been there for a week. What could it be and what should I do?

Very big red bump in groin area. There is no head (like a pimple) been there for a week. What could it be and what should I do?

Cyst: Assuming the bump is painful, it is likely a cyst which is a fluid filled bump below the skin. It could also be an early abcess, which is an infected collection of pus below the skin, like a pimple but more painful and larger. Either can be a consequence of shaving in the genital region. Don't squeeze or pop it! I recommend seeing your doctor asap to see if it needs to be drained. ...Read more

My daughter has red pimple like bump along her hairline on the forehead. And raw red patches on her head?

As with most rashes.: ...This could be a variety of things. This could be a virus, or this could be a bacterial infection that would respond to an antibiotic. This could even be tiny insects in the skin. It cannot be diagnosed online. You must see a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.

My chest starts hurting then it's a bit red with red bumps/pimple things on them. Happens sometimes on parts of my face as well?

My chest starts hurting then it's a bit red with red bumps/pimple things on them. Happens sometimes on parts of my face as well?

Hard to say?: We need to get more of a detailed history and physical exam to know this. Are the bumps itchy? Does chest and face flare at the same time? Is this a recurring event? Does anyone in your family have this rash? How long does it last when it flares? These are the kinds of things we need to know. ...Read more

Seldom have pimple/cystic acne. ONE cystic appeared 1mnth ago, no longer red but big bump remain & it won't come to a head. How do I treat it?

Let it be: Leaving it alone is the best option. You may try warm fomentation. Do not try to pop it as that will only lead to a scar. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

The pimples on my face are in clusters now, they don't heal as well as before. Some just look like red blood filled bumps. Should I be worried?

The pimples on my face are in clusters now, they don't heal as well as before. Some just look like red blood filled bumps. Should I be worried?

Manage your acne: Please forgive me. You're almost a grown woman. Acne in a teen may be a nuisance, but soon it will be a major liability. The question's not how they're arranged. You need to be rid of them. If topical benzoyl peroxide or retinoic acid hasn't cleared you in two weeks, your physician can add prescription-strength Rx. Don't let someone else's superstition or fear prevent effective treatment. ...Read more

What can I do about red bumps that aren't pimples on my face?

What can I do about red bumps that aren't pimples on my face?

Facial Examination: I wish I could see you in person but the first things that come to mind are seborrheic dermatitis or even heat rashes or freckles. I also suspect that these could be tiny capillary hemangiomas or spider nevi. See a cosmetic dermatologist if you are so concerned. ...Read more

Warm compresses: Probably a soft tissue infection. Young guys get these because bacteria are able to invade beard hairs. Put warm compresses on it. If it seems to be a deep infection interfering with breathing (and you will know) or you develop a fever, get seen. If it is not resolving within a week get with your physician. ...Read more

Rashes and bumps: Bumps are notoriously difficult to diagnose here. Consider reactions to sun, sunscreen, chlorine, sun-triggered reactions to things you are otherwise fine with. Any fever, sore throat, swollen glands? Try cool compresses, avoid lotions and stay out of the sun until better. Iced tea and shade? ...Read more

I have a small red bump on the side of my face and it looks like a pimple. It doesn't hurt or itch. I have acne (15 yrs old), but that bump won't leav?

Consider other dx: Sometimes there are skin conditions that co-exist with acne. For example, a condition known as pyogenic granuloma may appear at the site of an acne scar or blemish. This is handled differently than acne and must be diagnosed by the dermatologist. I suggest you don't pick or squeeze this bump and make an appointment with your PMD who may refer you to the dermatologist. ...Read more

I have a swollen painful bump on my nostril is it a cold sore? I've had it for 3 days and doesn't have a head like a pimple. It's very red and painful

A good history: A good social and medical history would be helpful to try to pinpoint what you may have. It is certainly likely that you have a cold sore, but I am more inclined to believe that you have a simple pimple in that area. I have seen several like this, they tend to get very red, no visible head on the skin surface, and very painful. ...Read more
