I just noticed what looks like an insect bite on my face. A small dot, a white patch surrounding it then a big red ring around it. What is it?

I just noticed what looks like an insect bite on my face. A small dot, a white patch surrounding it then a big red ring around it. What is it?

Insect bite: Sounds like an insect bite. Get it looked at ASAP, as it may be a deer tic bite and you would be at risk for Lyme disease. Go to the nearest urgent care facility or your family MD or the ER for evaluation and tx options. Take a picture of it now for comparison later. The red ring is a concern and makes it more urgent. Good Luck.

Get checked.: Strep throat does not always present with painful swallowing or a fever. In fact it only presents classically in about 60% of kids and 30% of adults. There are lots of atypical presentations for this disease. So with a white patch, it is worth getting a culture. If it does not go away in a week or so, get checked for other possibilities.

Pain between toe, which is also red, was a bump between, now just white patch?

Pain between toe, which is also red, was a bump between, now just white patch?

Between toe: The most common condition you are talking about could be referring to hammertoe with a soft corn. And irritation that causes the soft corn may also produce a bursitis condition that turns the toe red and swollen. Soft tissue corns between the toe can break down and form an abscess. Your podiatrist can evaluate this condition properly and advise you for the best care.

The white patch on my tonsils has gone now but there is a red patch, a little bit like a scab is this bad?

Still healing...: It is hard to answer your question completely without more information. If you are recovering from strep throat, it may take a week or more for the red inflammation to fully resolve.

My son has deep pigmentation around mouth and red rash when the rash gets better the white patch gets bigger. What can I do to help him?

My son has deep pigmentation around mouth and red rash when the rash gets better the white patch gets bigger. What can I do to help him?

? Atopic dermatitis: Without examining your son it is not possible to be sure. However, could he have atopic dermatitis and is getting pigment loss at the sites of his rash? This can happen in atopic patients. I would suggest you see a consultant in dermatology to be sure.

For years I've had this little white patch on my hand with 3 red pin dots in it, now there must be around 7dots, I also have some appearing on my arms?

You have a case: That really needs to be check out. It will be a good idea to go see a doctor. It's very difficult to help patients with dermatological issues without seeing the lesions, and the amount of information you gave us is very limited.

Slight sore throat, had white patch on soft pallet, now they are red & on roof, mouth dry, sore, feels like something in back of mouth weird taste wha?

Dr. Can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). Throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin can help decrease throat pain.

I have a red sore under my tongue, near my back tooth. It hurts to swallow and talk as well. There is also a white patch in my throat near it.?

You get them often?: Aphateous ulcer or canker sore almost always starts as a red spot then white patchy or develops a tingling or burning sensation before any other symptoms are obvious. If you have a canker sore, your mouth will feel painful. Usually heals on its own within 10 to 14 days. To be sure see your doctor or dentist.

I have small red dots on my arms, legs and hands. Some have white rings around them and 3 have brown patches of skin. Help please! Could be petechiae?

I have small red dots on my arms, legs and hands. Some have white rings around them and 3 have brown patches of skin. Help please! Could be petechiae?

Maybe: Petecchiae should not lighten if the skin is gently stretched. Usually rashes like you are describing are associated with a viral process. Recent cold or recent vaccinations may be associated. A good physical exam and basic CBC blood est would be helpful. Good luck!

Strep?!: Often when we are checking someone with a sore throat we take notice of white patches which suggest "exudate" or pus associated with the infection. This is the hallmark of a strep throat which needs antibiotic treatment. Your Urgent Care or doctor's office should be able to do a Rapid Strep test, confirm the diagnosis, and get you started on antibiotics TODAY. Please go in NOW! Best wishes:)

I've been having a recurring redness around the mouth, swelling of the lips in the morning, every thing red iches, cracked skin in the corners of the mouth, it's like a red ring around the mouth to my nose and to the bottom of my chin I've tried many thin

Sensitive skin: It may help to discuss with a physician because a lot of questions come to mind that would help differentiate possible causes. A common situation is contact sensitivity often to cosmetics or lip products, especially if there are fragrances or plant extracts contained in the products. Try avoiding these and take care to moisturize to promote healing (using frangrance/additive free product).

I have a white patch on lip but I bite my lip could this be from that or leukoplakia and should I be concerned?

I have a white patch on lip but I bite my lip could this be from that or leukoplakia and should I be concerned?

I would: Be a little concerned for the very reasons you mentioned. If you smoke or chew tobacco, I would be even more concerned! It may just be some post traumatic changes in your lip from biting it, although since I cannot see the patch, I cannot make that call. It is best to see your Dr or Dentist to verify the cause. Try to avoid biting your lip also!
