I have a hard, non-motile, tender, but not red circular bump, 0.25" - 0.5" wide, under my skin, 2 -2.5" above my left temple. Im 35 and F. Thoughts?

A few things: There are various things that can look like this on the skin. The two most common lesions are a lipoma or a cyst (typically a pilar cyst). While these are normally mobile, they can also be non-mobile. There are rarer lesions, such as other soft tissue and bony tumors or cysts. If it is bothersome or growing, I'd recommend having it evaluated by a dermatologist and getting it removed. ...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.

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

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

Hard knot on top of vagina had white head and I popped it and now it's sore and red. What could this be???? It's not near my vagina opening or my clit

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?

Big red bump out of no where on the left side of my neck its like a big pimple but no head white head or anything and its sore any answers?

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
