Hey, everytime i strach my skin a lump and a bump comes?

Hey, everytime i strach my skin a lump and a bump comes?

Sounds like hives: There is a form of hives (urticaria) called dermatographism or dermatographia, literally "skin writing." it is hives that are induced due to pressure on the skin. So any time the skin is scratched, a very itchy linear hive will come up for a few minutes then go away.

Is it normal to form lumps or bumps under the skin after lipo?

Is it normal to form lumps or bumps under the skin after lipo?

Yes: Lumps commonly form under the skin following liposuction. This is due to the collection of blood and serum in the multiple tunnels that are created during the procedure. Scar tissue will also form causing some lumpiness. These lumps can last several months before they disappear. Massage, heat, and ultrasound therapy will make these lumps go away faster. ...Read more

Itchy lumps on head without injury. One has tiny white bump and the other does not but hurts very bad. What is this?

Hard to say : Without actually looking at the rash. Since the bumps are itchy, they may be insect bites of some type, but since one hurts, infection must be ruled out. See you doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

My son was born on the 12th June 2018. He was born with this bump/lump on his head.  I think is Cephalohematoma.  What does need to do.

Monitor: True cephalohematomas will usually dissipate over the first weeks. Occasionally the blood collection under the involved scalp will leave a residual lump that represents a calcium deposit. It can last for months. These are monitored during regular checkups but left alone. Normal skull growth will eventually incorporate/resolve any bump. ...Read more

I knocked my fore head about 4 weeks ago and had a small bump. Today I felt a tingling burning sensation and the long bump dropped to become a lump ?

Hematoma: The lump and bump is a blood clot under the skin. This slowly resolves as it breaks up gradually. Black and blue skin color usually follows. The tingling sensation is an irritation of a superficial nerve in the skin and is not within the brain. As long as you're not experiencing ongoing headaches,dizziness,visual difficulties or vomiting, you don't require a physicians examination at this time. ...Read more
