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 a more rough/red sensitive rash, could be soaps or irritants baby's cheeks are coming into contact with. ...Read more

Facial rash: This could be folliculitis which is infected hair follicles. It could be cystic acne, pimples under the skin. Either of these would best be treated with prescriptions medicines. Try to get checked by a doctor to get the right diagnosis and treatment. Early treatment can help prevent scarring later on. ...Read more

Acne Nodules: Acne cysts are soft, pus-filled and inflamed lesions that occur deep in the dermis. They are also referred to as acne nodules, and are notoriously difficult to treat with common acne medications such as benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. Due to the fact that acne cysts occur deep inside the skin, they must be treated by a skincare professional in order to minimize scarring. ...Read more

Molluscum: This is likely molluscum contagiosum, a viral infection of the skin. Once the immune system starts attacking the virus, they may inflame, and appear to be infected, but this is actually a good sign, and they disappear in a few months after this occurs. It can be frustrating for parents, as I have seen mc last for a couple of years. There are many treatments available, though. ...Read more

Probably : In all likelihood it probably is, particularly if there are no significant areas of redness or fever which is present would suggest you would be best served with a visit to your physician.

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.

My illness started with a bad headache and a sore throat. After two days of taking Advil, my headache went away but my sore throat stayed and red, pimple-like bumps were forming all over my hands, feet, and face. Is there a way to cure this?

My illness started with a bad headache and a sore throat. After two days of taking Advil, my headache went away but my sore throat stayed and red, pimple-like bumps were forming all over my hands, feet, and face. Is there a way to cure this?

Doctor can check: A sore throat can be evaluated by a primary care doctor to see what the cause might be. Sometimes it is a strep throat bacterial infection (antibiotics would be needed to treat strep). Other possibilities include viral infections such as Hand-Foot-Mouth disease or Mononucleosis (mono), a tonsillar abcess, throat ulcers, etc... The doctor has to look at the throat and rash to figure things out. ...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

As with most rashes.: 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.

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

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

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

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
