Sore: There is no way to know what it is without being evaluated. Pilar cysts are very common on the scalp, are harmless, but generally do not hurt alhough can be sensitive. I recommend that you have a board-certified Dermatologist evaluate the spot. ...Read more

Nevus?: sounds llike a brown nevus, or what people call a "birthmark". It sounds like it is flat, small and does not have discoloration or different colors or dark colors in it. These are all good characteristics and you should not worry about this lesion too much. However if it grows over time, if color changes, if it becomes raised, then consult physician. ...Read more

Take a deep breath: I can tell you not to worry about it, but I know that will not work. These symptoms do not seem consistent with either of the diagnoses you fear. Regardless, make an appointment to see your physician. It may be something simple like dehydration (it has been getting hotter in Chatham, no?). Your doctor is the best person to discuss your concerns. ...Read more

If the symptoms are new and progressing over a day or two, or if there is a fever or stiffness in the neck, please seek care asap. If the progression is slower, you can consider a primary care provider or pharmacy based nurse practitioner evaluation. ...Read more
