I have a pea sized red bump on the underside of my penis near the base of the shaft. It's now leaking puss and has a yellow tip at the center. Herpes?

Doubt herpes: Herpes doesn't behave like this - it doesn't cause a "red bump" that would "leak pus". This sounds like a pimple or infected skin cyst. See a doctor to be safe, but I don't think you need to be worried about herpes or any other STD. Good luck. ...Read more

Synovial cyst: Sometimes a small channel can develop between the deeper levels in the skin which can communicate with an adjacent joint. As the joint moves it can "pump" synovial (joint) fluid into a cyst under the skin. It can wax and wane in size; sometimes is can be re absorbed completely. If, however, it were to become progressively larger and painful it might be useful to check with an Orthopedic MD ...Read more

Small itchy bumps on my knuckle?

Itchy bumps: Small bumps can occur on the skin for a variety of reasons, but when they are "ichy" it is usually an indication that they are a "reaction" to something - an "allergy". You may be allergic to something that your skin is coming in contact with like a soap or lotion - could also be clothing. Try to find out what is causing the reaction, eliminate it, and see if it gets better. Steroid cream may help. ...Read more

I was in a wreck a month ago. 3in facial laseration its healing but around it is numb and its leaking yellow fluid. What could cause this?

I was in a wreck a month ago. 3in facial laseration its healing but around it is numb and its leaking yellow fluid. What could cause this?

Complications: Since the laceration was deep enough to require suturing, most likely it was deep enough to cut some of the tiny nerves that provide sensation to the injured area. These tiny nerves eventually heal in most cases but can take several months. The leaking of fluid concerns me more and might indicate that part of the laceration isn't healing properly. Get it checked out. ...Read more

Recently I saw a small red bump on my inner thigh then today it was now 3 small yellow colored bumps. I scratched them off but should I be worried?

Probably not, but: Stop scratching off 'bumps' unless you then disinfect them and bandage to prevent infection or irritation. You may be tough, and it may not 'hurt' but it can still get infected and lead to bigger problems than you want to invite. If it returns, go for an exam. Also, if you know of a possible risky source, have lab testing. ...Read more

Ok so I have bump on my iner thighs, Arm pit and butt they start of small then bust out with some yellow and bloold tissue and end up leaving marks?

Hydradenitis supp: Urativa or severe acne inversus which is a disease of the hair follicles. It can be VERY severe and is strongly associated with both smoking and obesity. You may need to have these small abscesses drained/ packed and be put on antibiotics, but really need to see a dermatologist to see if anything can be done to stop them from coming. Good luck! ...Read more
