"Bumps" can have numerous causes, from insect bites to contact dermatitis, & more. Diagnosis of skin findings is challenging without visual inspection. Additionally, a detailed medical history is needed to assess all possible causes. See your doctor for the correct diagnosis and treatment ...Read more

Have three small bumps. Flesh colored around the anal area. One lower butt cheek. Rarely itch, they don't bother me but what could they be?

Fleshy Flags: These are likely skin tags versus warts. It is possible to contract a viral infection that causes warts, known as human papilloma virus (hpv), particularly if you engage in anogenital activities. Anal skin tags are also very common and typically completely harmless unless they are large. If irritated they can be removed. Anal warts should be monitored in the office especially if bleeding. ...Read more

Bit the inside of my cheek a couple times and now have a small bump that is dark red/black; is this just dried blood? Feels like a pimple

Bit the inside of my cheek a couple times and now have a small bump that is dark red/black; is this just dried blood? Feels like a pimple

Most likely: It's dried blood or a blood blister from repeated bites. It happens all the time with sores on our tongues & cheeks. We bite them once then keep biting them since they protrude slightly. Slow down when eating, be extra careful & it should heal in 2-3 days. If you keep biting it or it stays a problem see your dentist. They may be able to grind a small amount of 1-2 teeth to help you stop biting. ...Read more

I have a small bump of some sort on the inside of my cheek that burns when I drink some stuff and when I dip had dentist look 2 monthsagowasntworried?

Burning bump: First, whatever you do, stop dipping. That causes oral cancers, plain & simple. It might not mean anything to you now, but in coming years if you were told that you had cancer, it would! Secondly, without actually examining you personally, we can't diagnose lesions such as this. Obviously, something is just not right. If you can't get an answer that makes sense to you, consult with an oral surgeon. ...Read more
