Swollen shiny red lump on left side forehead? Origin. 24 hours later my left parotid lymph node became hard, tender & pea sized. Area around lump starting to get itchy. Afebrile & asymptomatic.

Don't Squeeze: It sounds like you may have a furuncle (small boil). Your lymph nodes are probably reacting to the infection. Many patients make the mistake of squeezing boils. This may cause further injury to the skin and make things worse! Apply a warm compress and be patient. Don't squeeze. ...Read more

Have a lump on back side of head and one more at the base of my neck. They are a little red and tender to the touch. Making neck sore also.

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.

Here are some. ..: Without further detail of the affected area and medical background, it's hard to offer an accurate assessment. At least, these sploches seem benign, non-urgent, and non- progressive. But for long term care, it's reasonable to get pro-evaluation and counseling so to decide if they're long-foreskin-related or not. If so, circumcision may be required. So, see urologist timely. ...Read more

Is a boil that is still forming contagious (just red and sore, no pus, discharge, or head etc)??

Is a boil that is still forming contagious (just red and sore, no pus, discharge, or head etc)??

Not contagious, but: A boil usually results from an infected sebaceous gland or cyst. Its mainstay of care is draining it; topical antibiotic use would not help and systemic antibiotics work better. Clinically, it is not contagious as long as not rupturing to contact micro-injured skin surface. To decide what you may need, seek evaluation timely. How? Follow steps in http://formefirst.

I have small cuts under my penis head. I'm uncircumcised and my skin gets red sore when pulling back foreskin. Usually after sex my wife is sore too?

Uncirc Problem: Patients who are not circumcised may develop balanoposthitis, a long word meaning inflammation or infection of the foreskin and/or head of the penis. When cuts develop, it is usually because the foreskin is too tight or there is chronic inflammation. Keeping the penis dry is essential to recovery. If the problem persists, patients need to see a urologist to treat the underlying cause. ...Read more
