Glands: Hi
Sorry to hear you've been dealing with rash issues. There are glands under the arm pit that can commonly become clogged and become infected. We have larger glands there that you wouldn't find elsewhere, like say your forearm. If you shave, it is also common to get ingrown hairs. Usually these issues are self resolving.

Dry skin?: From your description, the problem appears to be what is called keratosis pilaris. Skin tags have a stem. I would suggest that you try applying a moisturizer on your body within 3 mins after bathing and perhaps another application with or without bathing 12 hrs later and see if you can see improvement after about a week. If not, consult a dermatologist. Avoid scented or anti-bacterial soap. ...Read more

Abscess/folliculitis: Most women shave their arm pits. Occasionally bacteria gets imbedded under the skin or in the hair follicules of the arm pits. Your description sounds like you may have an infected area with a blackhead on the surface. You may try hot compresses to the area and antibacterial soap and water wash 3 times per day. If no improvement in 2-3 days, see your MD for possible antibiotics or drain abscess. ...Read more

I have a small black dot on the skin of my penis. Do I have cancer?

Watch for two weeks: If it is not gone by two weeks, and it does not look like an ordinary benign pigmented lesion like you have elsewhere, then have it seen. The likelihood that this is cancer is very small, but it would need to be looked at. ...Read more

A small black dot on the bottom of my foot - looks like dried blood. Poked thru the top skin layer and it seems to flake off. Any reason to see a dr.?

Yes: Small hemorrhages under the thick skin on one's foot can present this way and "flake off" with time.

Black dot can also be a melanoma so I would see a doctor if it does not flake away completely. ...Read more

Raised 4mm mole on my neck got dry and flacky this week. Small black dot occured, I think blood clot. Last skin check by derm was one month ago. Melanoma?

Likely not.: It is unlikely that any significant change occurred in your skin lesion within one month since the last examination by a dermatologist; nevertheless, anything is possible. It is always wise to have all pigmented lesions evaluated regularly by a dermatologist; if there are changes, a visit or phone call also gives you the opportunity to discuss your concerns with the dermatologist who knows you. ...Read more

I have many small skin tags under my arms n back of my neck in recent months more so also on my inner tigh. Why and how do I remove these.

R/o Acanthosis: 30 year old woman with skin tags. It would be best in this situation to get an exam from your physician to rule out Acanthosis Nigricans and related diseases and endocrinopathies. Bring your family history and current health information. If simple skin tags can be cauterized or removed with cryotherapy. Please see your doctor for exam then cosmetic dermatology. Good luck. ...Read more

I just noticed a bite with 2 dots on my arm, one of them has a tiny black dot inside looks like a blackhead, I'm thinking spider bite, now what?

Doubt it: Spider bites worth worrying about don't leave tiny black dots. They leave significant black/dark holes measuring several mm across and often angry surrounding skin. It may be a bite, but unless it acts up I'd ignore it. ...Read more

Help, I have black dot on rim of penis head?

Likely, just a varix: Likely, the black dot is just an harmless varix, which requires no Rx as long as being painless and no change in size over time. Of course, without a detailed Hx with sequence of event and a direct look, it's hard to come up an accurate Dx as wished. So, see Doc timely if still in doubt. Best wish. .. ...Read more
