I got hit with a life jacket they swung it and now I have a small bump on my head?

Bump: If it was just a blunt trauma from the blow and no other symptoms were present like change in vision, passing out, major headache, etc, I'd only observe it and would apply an ice pack and if there is some local pain, take Ibuprofen or Tylenol (acetaminophen). Typically, this should be enough to get over it. ...Read more

I have 2 small bumps on my head, they hurt when I push them in or touch them. Do you know what it could be???

Bumps on head: Two things come mind right off: 1) shingles. If they are little blisters, and your skin feels tingly, go see a doctor right away for anti-viral medicine, which has to be started within 48 hrs of seeing the shingles rash. Or 2) Sebaceous cysts. Blocked oil glands that fill, can get infected, often need to be drained in the office. See a dr if they get worse or seem like something else entirely. ...Read more

I have two different small bumps on my head the dont itch or anything. But i pick and then they bleed profusely. Whats up?

Scalps bleed: The scalp has a large blood supply to help the body cool down. So if it's injured, say by picking at it, it will bleed more than might be expected. As for what might the bumps might be, it's anyone's guess without a good photo. Have them looked at by a doctor preferably a dermatologist. ...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
