My 5 year old daughter has a bruise on the lower left side of her abdomen. About two days ago it was the size of a pea now it is bigger with lump?

In: In general, if she is having pain, give her doctor a call. Without an examination, it's difficult to say what her painful lump is and how to treat it.

One of the more common possibilities for her symptoms is a skin infection with abscesses or "boils". These usually start out as tender, red areas which become hard and then eventually develop a "head" of white pus. Once this drains, the area usually heals on its own. Most of these are caused by staphylococcus aureas, a common bacteria found on the skin. Occasionally, however, the can be caused by mrsa, the antibiotic resistent kind of staph bacteria.

Next time she develops one of these infections, start out by applying warm compresses to the area to help draw the infection out. Then, you should take her to her doctor so that they can drain it, test for what bacteria is causing it and be able to treat her appropriately - sometimes with antibiotics, sometimes just with drainage. If she ever develops fever, chills, or feels ill with this infection, call her doctor immediately.

You can try and prevent these infections by practicing good hygiene and using anti-bacterial soaps. Her doctor may have other suggestions for prevention. ...Read more

I have 3 round hard lumps inside my lower stomach & feel bruised to the the touch when I feel them what could they be?

No idea!: Some ideas: do you inject anything (insulin, blood thinner) in that area? If so, you can develop hard lumps. Lipomas are fatty tumors under the skin but they are usually squishy, not hard. Lymph nodes can be enlarged and tender if you have an infection, but those would not be in the area you describe. Bruises can develop into hard knots. See a doctor to know for sure! ...Read more
