I have a small blackish bump on my leg, it has a red ring around it, and I am not sure if it is a mole or not. What is it and what should I do?

See a dermatologist!: Any time there is a pigmented lesion (one with color), and sometimes even a non-pigmented lesion, it is necessary to have them examined by a dermatologist. The red ring could simply indicate inflammation but the fact that it may be new to you or is a changing lesion is a real indication to have this examined by a professional. ...Read more

After I shave my legs I get these white dry bumps with small black hair sticking out sometimes all over my legs and it itches. What is this?

See dermatologist: I recommend getting new woman's razor with excellent reviews, changing your soap to a very moisturizing soap and using gentle cleanser for bathing. You have very sensitive skin and may need to consider alternative options for hair removal such as Laser Hair removal. If changing razor, soaps and moisturizers is not helpful, please consult a dermatologist. ...Read more

You: You can see a small fine red rash after a MMR vaccine but the rash you describe has occurred too long after receiving the vaccine. No need to fear the MMR vaccine. The rash you describe sounds like hives. The next time it happens, take a picture of it to show your pediatrician. Phone cameras are great for documenting short lived rashes like this since odds are your child may not have it at the time of the doctor visit. ...Read more

This: This is one of those situations where "a picture is worth a thousand words"--really needs to be seen by a medical professional. Eczema is common in children and can occur on trunk and extremities. Topical moisture with heavier, cream-type moisturizers is best for eczema. If it does not resolve, it may require topical prescription medication. But a quick "eyeball" visit will clarify the issue. ...Read more

Purpura: Purpura occurs when small blood vessels join together or leak blood under the skin.
When purpura spots are very small, they are called petechiae. Large purpura are called ecchymoses.
Platelets help the blood clot. A person with purpura may have normal platelet counts (nonthrombocytopenic purpuras) or low platelet counts (thrombocytopenic purpuras). See your doctor. ...Read more

Suspect these: I suspect that these may be either comedones (blackheads) or sebaceous cysts. However, it is possible that they could be abnormal moles or even a type of skin cancer called melanoma. It is impossible to tell for sure without seeing it in person or at least seeing a picture. Have your doctor give it a quick look. ...Read more

I have one small red bump on my leg and I don't know what it is?

I don't either: Bumps and lesions are very hard, if not impossible to diagnose over the computer. If the bump does not go away on its own in the next few days, than a physical exam by a health care provider would help determine what the bump might be and how to treat it. Good luck. ...Read more

Lump on skin: Hard to know exactly without seeing it, but possibly it's an ingrown hair, or a lipoma (small collection of fat). You cannot see a blood clot on the surface of the skin, so don't worry about that. If it doesn't hurt, and it's not red or inflamed, you can keep an eye on it. If it gets worse or becomes painful, have it checked out. ...Read more

I have this bump on my leg and it itches but there is a black thing in the middle of it and it kinda feels hot to touch to me but not others?

Get it checked: An itchy bump doesn't sound too worrisome, but anytime we hear there is pigmentation, "a black thing", we have more concern for skin cancer. For us a picture would help, but probably best to have your doctor take a look at it. Good luck! ...Read more

Seborrheic Keratosis: Seborrheic keratosis (seb-o-ree-ik care-uh-toe-sis) is a common skin growth. It may look worrisome, but it is benign (not cancer). These growths often appear in middle-aged and older adults. Some people get just one. It is, however, more common to have many. They are not contagious. ...Read more

I have this some kind of muscel bump in my upper left leg muscel, its not hurt, sometime it get big, sometime it get small, I have it for around 6 month?

Get it checked: Do not ignore any bump that shows any growth. It may flucctuate in size but the fact is if it is new (was not there last year), then it should be examined by your doctor and an imaging study (like ultrasound/ct scan or mri) be done to find out about its nature. A biopsy may be needed if it is suspicious for a muscle tumor (sarcoma). ...Read more
