Small salt like bumps on my chin I am 55 years old and have never had an acne problem..Yay for that. However, i now have these salt like bumps on my chin that look like white heads. My skin is dry and very sensitive, what could they be and how can I rid

Hard : Hard to tell without a clinical examination so i would see a dermatologist, but perhaps these are milium, sebaceous hyperplasia, or other possibilities. Read more refissa and obagi at the link below. In combination, these treatments can help sun damaged skin and milium. Another option might be extraction if they are indeed milium. I hope that helps a little. ...Read more

I had a small hard painful bump under my chin and it has become larger over a few days. Is this something I should have checked out?

Possibly: Without knowing what else is going on it is difficult to diagnose. Since it occurred rapidly it is likely to be a lymph node reacting to some local inflammatory process, either in the oral cavity or surrounding areas. If it continues to enlarge and is tender or red it would not hurt to have a health care professional take a look. Good luck. ...Read more

Lymph node: It was probably a reactive lymph node after a recent infection , even if you did not recognize it as such. It it is gone, do not worry nothing to lose sleep over. Good luck and good health! ...Read more

Likely no problem: Sounds like a localized area of bruising, and unlikely to represent any severe complication. If he becomes irritable, stops eating and drinking, or exhibits vomiting, or becomes very drowsy, contact your pediatrician, but likely he will be fine. ...Read more
