So I have these small red bumps right under my nail that's been there for a while and recently four smaller ones appeared right bellow the others. Once time I picked off them and then they came back. Could they be warts?

So I have these small red bumps right under my nail that's been there for a while and recently four smaller ones appeared right bellow the others. Once time I picked off them and then they came back. Could they be warts?

Probably: Pl get these checked out at an urgent care center to confirm the diagnosis, for which you can use wart removing medicine topically while keeping the area covered with a small band aid. Pl don't pick these as the warts are quite contagious and likely to spread to adjoining areas. Read more

Small red bumps that appeared out of nowhere today on the head on my penis and when I pull back the foreskin. They don't really hurt or itch?

Bumps on penis: It would be useful to know, if you have any other signs or symptoms along with these red dots like itching, fever, swelling of head of penis (glans penis). The shape and contour of the said red dots is also important. Also as per you description, you noticed them after having sex. This may indicated a sexually transmitted infection. If they are red rash like spots with itching and/or swelling of head, then it could be an yeast (candida) infection. Small blister like lesions with pain and fever may strongly indicate a herpes infection. Molluscum contagiosum infection can appear as small bumps with central depression. Also, genital warts due HPV (Human papilloma virus) infection can present as small pink/red bumps over penis. Read more

Hi, I have a question about little small, red bumps on my tongue back witch smells bad, also from the other side I have like wrats, is it normal?

Maybe normal: I'm guessing you are seeing normal circumvallate papillae -- a row of large bumps across the back of the tongue that can appear wart-like. They are entirely normal. Google it for photos to compare. If those photos don't match, best to see a doctor or your dentist. Whatever they are, I doubt they are the cause of the odor you have noticed. Read more

My 1 month old son has developed rashes in form of small red bumps all over his body including face neck chest and back. What should I do?

Baby acne?: It's likely to be baby acne at his age, assuming that he is otherwise well and feeding normally. Baby acne tends to occur right around this age and looks like red bumps that get redder and stand out more when baby is upset or just after a bath. This goes away on its own in a few weeks. It is caused by maternal hormones that crossed through the placenta. No treatment is needed. Read more
