There are bumps on my leg that seems like pimples but they don't pop and they're warmer than other parts of my skin. Is it kp or something else?

Folliculitis?

this should be examined by a physician to be sure, but commonly is bacterial in nature, often in healthy people can occur after shaving.

I have a little white pimple on the right outer corner of my eye I've had it years but recently it's started to send a warming sensation down my face?

Milia

Milia are tiny epidermal cysts that typically form around the eyes or nose (or both). They do not cause "warming sensations", however. A dermatologist may be able to help you figure out what is going on.

I have a pimple like bump on the top area of my vagina can it be from being warm and moist?

See your doctor

This is one of those problems where a visit to your doctor is necessary to figure out what's going on. Only after a thorough evaluation, including examination and possibly labs and other tests, can your doctor correctly diagnose you and treat you effectively.

I have large pores on my nose and cheeks. I dont have pimples and i unclog my pores regularly, then apply cold compress. Help?

Pores

Acne
A warm or hot washcloth will clear the pores better than a cold washcloth.

I have random clusters of pimples on my left buttock cheak and a painful lymph noid near my groin. The infected area is quite warm.

Genital herpes

Acne
This sounds like a classic case of genital herpes. You should see your doctor to confirm the diagnosis. There is treatment if you get to your doctor quickly. You should also take your sex partner for testing to see if s/he has it and for advice on how to avoid getting it if they don't.

Scratch on face Hello, I scratched my face by squeezing and rubbing an ingrown pimple with a warm face cloth. I have been applying neosporin, viatmin e and now maderma and still have a dark mark on my face. It has been 2 weeks now. Please help.

Leave It Alone

Pimples
Sometimes less is more. It started because you irritated it and now continues to be irritated because you can't leave it alone. Don't do anything for the next few weeks and it will probably get better on its own. Sometimes we do too much trying to help the body do what it does best on its own.

How does heat help pimples?

Chemotaxis

Pimples
It tends to bring in more white blood cells to fight the bacteria. You'd do much better to use topical benzoyl peroxide to prevent / treat acne lesions, and if this is not sufficient, to get with your physician.

Pimple on the nose has grown. Does applying heat cook the germs and dry it up?

Um, no.

Nose
Heat may "bring it to a head" and allow it to drain, however. But please don't burn yourself, and please don't squeeze it! If it doesn't go away within a reasonable period, see your doctor, because there are other causes for bumps on the nose, and some need to be treated promptly.
