I hit the back of my head with the upper part of my car door about 5 hrs ago (5:00pm) I have a small welt n its really sore, should I worry?

Nope: It's a scalp hematoma and just needs ice and rest. God was smart when he made the skull....It is thick in the front and the back. If you have nausea, vomiting, or dizziness, you could have a concussion and you may need to see your doc.

I was bitten on holiday about 2 weeks ago, I'm allergic to mosquito saliva but the welts & itching went until a few days ago - and they're now worse!

I was bitten on holiday about 2 weeks ago, I'm allergic to mosquito saliva but the welts & itching went until a few days ago - and they're now worse!

What's the question?: If you are wondering why they are itching 2 weeks later? If is probable that you are having a delayed immune reaction the important thing is to take an antihistamine and apply cortisone cream to help it resolve sooner

???: What are you doing? This is very odd. Why would you do such a thing? Your bruise will last a while but you better stop this activity

I hit my head a week ago in my backyard on a steel trailer hitch. A golf ball sized welt formed and lasted 3 days. Now have sharp pain 2 the touch?

I hit my head a week ago in my backyard on a steel trailer hitch. A golf ball sized welt formed and lasted 3 days. Now have sharp pain 2 the touch?

Not surprising: This area is reacting to the hard hit you had with your head vs. Steel trailer hitch. It's still swollen, and you need to contact your doctor to report your trauma, and be evaluated in case it needs to be imaged. At this point, it may take weeks for the swelling to go down. You might benefit from having a 2nd opinion from an osteopathic doctor, who can do a musculoskeletal, crania osteopathic xm 2.

My 27 mo old has a walnut size welt by the crown of his head. His pupils aren't abnormal & he's acting fine. At what point should I have it checked?

My 27 mo old has a walnut size welt by the crown of his head. His pupils aren't abnormal & he's acting fine. At what point should I have it checked?

Progressive decline.: If he had no loss of consciousness and he is acting fine there is no need for him to be seen. On the other hand if he develops a progressive neurologic deficit - inability to use an extremity, or progressive sleepiness he should be seen immediately.

Hi, I have moved to malaysia recently with my girlfriend and she gets this rash that looks like welts on her neck stomach and head?

Welts: Welts or hives are known as urticaria in medicine. They could be due to allergic reaction to something she is exposed to in malaysia. She could try antihistamines such as diphenhydramine. But she should be seen by a doctor if there's no improvement.

Got hit in leg by dog mouth, have raised bruise with 10 little red dots for a week now?

Got hit in leg by dog mouth, have raised bruise with 10 little red dots for a week now?

Dog bite: Although it sounds like the dog didn't intentionally bite you, did the dog's teeth puncture the skin? Are the little red dots in the pattern of the dog's teeth? I suggest you consult a clinician and get examined. It has been a week since the incident so the likelihood of a serious infection is lower, but the only way to tell what the red dots are is to look at them. Have a doc examine you.

Hematoma is: Most likely. Boxers get this a lot but no lasting effects. Please check with your primary care doctor.

3 year old has a rash around mouth, bruise like in color (looks like she ate berries that stained), no other symptoms, doesn't bother her.?

Lip Licking: Lip licking is a common habit 3 year olds can get into which causes a red, chapped rash localized to the perioral region. Treat with Aquaphor or Vaseline. Kids usually grow out of this habit after a while. Try redirecting her if it is a common occurrence.

Randomly inside of lip (where bottom touches top) will sting, swell like a welt, and a red ring will form. Started a few mos ago, along with dryness?

Allergist or ENT: This symptom may be recurrent angioedema which may or may not be an allergic reaction to something internal like a medication, or external like toothpaste, lipstick, etc. Since the reaction is always at the same site, maybe an otolaryngologist should examine the site first; otherwise a consultation with an allergist may be worthwhile.

My husband breaks out in welts / hives on his upper body. Face and head swells really bad. Gets a fever with it. He's had blood/allergy tests.?

Don't know: Hives and swelling are common. With fever - can happen. Has this been happening for awhile? Does it itch? Do antihistamines (like benadryl) help? Test results? His case sounds unusual, but don't have enough details. Time to see a board certified allergist.

Red pin prickrash on both cheeks on face with small light blue bruise close to her mouth had itp below 3 as a toddler 4 years old now and on pinamox?

Red pin prickrash on both cheeks on face with small light blue bruise close to her mouth had itp below 3 as a toddler 4 years old now and on pinamox?

Umm, hard to say.: Heat rash. Viral rash. Allergy rash. Infectious rash. Eczema. Contact dermatitis. The best strategy is to determine the source of the rash then address that specifically. This should be an easy question to pose to your pediatrician during the 4-year old well visit. Without actually viewing the rash and "bruise" in person, any answer would be but a guess. Your daughter deserves better than a guess.

It: It sounds as though your daughter may have 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 your daughter 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.
