Abscess: You may have inadvertently contaminated the area; apply warm compresses and seek medical attention to rule out an abscess that may need treatment.

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.

Two weeks: Sounds like you have subconjunctival hemorrhage which is due to bleeding trapped between the white or sclera and clear membrane or conjunctiva of the eye. It usually takes two weeks to clear. If it does not clear see a board certified ophthalmologist near you or on health tap healthtap. Com/rebeccamammo CKKMCR

Sty?: This could be a sty or a chalazion. Consult me or another local doc on HealthTap Concierge and I would be happy to help. In the mean time, try placing a warm wet compress (wash cloth) over the area to encourage it to open and drain.

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

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.

The lymph node on the left side of my neck is swollen and sore and I have red painful bumps in patches on my scalp on the left side of my head help me?

Likely not related: Scalp patches likely not related. After sinus infection ex. Or sore throat (viral, bacterial) lymph nodes may grow. If they persist after a few weeks consider evaluation for ex. Lymphoma.

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

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.

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

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.
