Small red patch below eyebrow, it's a little sore, skin flakes noticed in morning but washes off.?

Hydrocortisone: It sounds like mild eczema, and i'd use some over the counter Hydrocortisone cream on it for a few days. If it's clearing up, great! If not, i'd get it checked out by your family doctor. Sores on the face that scab or flake and don't heal by 2 weeks concern us for skin cancer. Good luck and always use sun protection! ...Read more

Concerned about 1mm sore beside eyebrow that hasn't healed over a month. No change in size no scab. Looks like red dot. Can this be skin cancer?

Concerned about 1mm sore beside eyebrow that hasn't healed over a month. No change in size no scab. Looks like red dot. Can this be skin cancer?

Not likely: A 1mm lesion is likely benign and represents either a blood blister, hemangioma or focal inflammatory/vascular extravasation from bug bite. Is it raised? Does it itch? It is very unlikely that a pinpoint red 1mm macule is cancerous. If you are worried, a visit to the dermatologist will give you the reassurance you need. ...Read more

Touched eye after handling raw chicken. Tear duct is sore almost a week later. No redness. Could this resolve on its own? Anything to watch for?

Touched eye after handling raw chicken. Tear duct is sore almost a week later. No redness. Could this resolve on its own? Anything to watch for?

Yes: The difficult problem is knowing what you mean by sore tear duct. The inner corner of your eyelid has a drainage hole (punctum) that allows tears to drain into your nose via nasolacrimal duct. If you had an infection from the chicken, I'd expect much more yellowish discharge from eyeball. However if you're very tender in the corner with eyelid redness/swelling, get it checked by Eye MD.? antibiotc ...Read more

Hi there, Just last week I has some small red circular areas break out on the head of my penis. The are not itchy or sore in any way they. Need Help.

Here are some. ..: Without a direct look after detailed Hx, it's hard to come up a right Dx. However, clinically, such skin change is highly likely related with poor hygiene with long foreskin, and sexual intercourse. A combo of Hx stressing the features & sequence of events over time + physical exam + tests (rarely needed for such) will bring about a right diagnosis for reasonable Rx/ care/ counseling.
