Insect bite?: It might be an insect bite and she might have a reaction to it. If it is painful or feverish and comforting cold compress does not help - go to a pharmacy or even urgent care so she can sleep well and not get frightened. It may be a simple OTC remedy will be all she needs. Good luck. ...Read more

I have a swollen painful bump on my nostril is it a cold sore? I've had it for 3 days and doesn't have a head like a pimple. It's very red and painful

A good history: A good social and medical history would be helpful to try to pinpoint what you may have. It is certainly likely that you have a cold sore, but I am more inclined to believe that you have a simple pimple in that area. I have seen several like this, they tend to get very red, no visible head on the skin surface, and very painful. ...Read more

Get that looked at: You need to see a doctor. If you have been sexually active, and that includes blow jobs, then this is undoubtedly an STD, or even more than one. If you have never had sex, then these symptoms are very unusual but most likely still represent some sort of infection. This is an appropriate problem to take to the ER if you can't get into a doctor or public health clinic right away ...Read more

See your doctor: Sounds like more than psoriasis. See your primary care doctor so she/he can run some tests on you to rule out infection and other causes of lymph node swelling. Psoriasis does not usually cause lymph nodes to swell unless the plaques get secondarily infected. ...Read more

Unilateral redness, irritation and itchiness down there. Not yeast. No bumps or anything just red and a bit red and swollen from itchiness.

Still yeast?: Several common conditions could do this. Even though you say not yeast, that still may be possible, the most common cause of such symptoms. It can be difficult to identify yeast to confirm the diagnosis, and some yeast infections are caused by Candida glabrata, often resistant to the usual treatments. If your primary care doc or gyn can't figure it out, consider seeing a dermatologist. ...Read more

What causes temporal pain on one side head. It doesn't hurt bad unless I touch it.should I be concerned? I am 60. No bumps or redness on area.

PainInTheTemple, Oy!: At your age it could be an inflamed temporal artery, which is a marker for inflammation to deeper arteries, some of which could affect your eye and eyesight. So best to go see your doctor right away. A blood test could give a fairly good answer. If it's not that (called "temporal arteritis) then your doctor could try and figure out something else with a sigh of relief that it wasn't arteritis. ...Read more

An expert physical examination and possibly some tests (plain skull x-ray or CT) will likely be helpful. Most fluid filled cysts are not hard, but there is a chance the lump could be aspirated.
