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

Seek evaluation.: Any neck soreness from a "lump" needs an evaluation. The timing of the evaluation is based on the speed at which the symptoms are developing. If the symptoms are new and progressing over a day or two, or if there is a fever or stiffness in the neck, please seek care asap. If the progression is slower, you can consider a primary care provider or pharmacy based nurse practitioner evaluation. ...Read more

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?
