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 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

I have a small black bump on my arm pits and another one on my inner thigh could it be a sign of cancer it's small and black in both places?
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.

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

I just observed the back of my thigh and felt a hard small rounded bump on my leg. I'm unsure what this is?
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

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
Start with a photo: The majority of childrens rashes are viral. A quick visit to your child's doctor could certainly prevent a lot of worry. Rashes with fevers should be seen.
