Yes: When something hits a small child on the head or when she falls on her head from a distance of less than 5 feet, cries right away, the chances of any internal brain injury are very very small, as shown by a study at the er of a boston hospital some years ago. So you can be reassured and go on loving her. ...Read more

No: but you are "close" It's most likely an INTERNAL hemorrhoid which has clotted and is shrinking... It will slowly go away! if it does not your PCP can look with an "anoscope" Sitz baths might help! Hope this helps! DR Z ...Read more

Cyst or skin tumor: Most likely (statistically) to be an epidermal cyst, but it could be one of several types of skin tumor. If it really is "rock hard", let a dermatologist have a look at it and give you a precise diagnosis. ...Read more

Bumps in nose: sounds like tiny sebaceous cysts that are forming - and if "popped" drain. You might try some topical over the counter antibiotic cream. However, MRSA can be colonized in the nose and requires a prescription antibiotic cream to erradicate. I would make an appointment with your doctor just to be safe. ...Read more

My 13 yearold can noteat most foods with reaction itchy mouth, bumps that sometimes bleed, tightness , hard to swollow test says no reaction to food?

Allergens not known?: Itchy mouth, is a common symptom of allergic or irritant reaction to a food allergen. Bumps that bleed is not a frequent sign of an allergy; rather, it is due to viruses causing blisters (herpes of mouth). This can make it hard to swallow tightness could be real or perceived because of the fear of a reaction. It appears more likely that food is acting as an irritant (rather than an allergen). ...Read more

Head Injury: You do need to be vigilant tonight. Once 24 hours have passed without any worsening then you can breathe a bit easier. If your child is not throwing up and can be aroused from sleep a couple of times tonight then things will be fine. If he begins to vomit this is an emergency. ...Read more

I have two different small bumps on my head the dont itch or anything. But i pick and then they bleed profusely. Whats up?

Scalps bleed: The scalp has a large blood supply to help the body cool down. So if it's injured, say by picking at it, it will bleed more than might be expected. As for what might the bumps might be, it's anyone's guess without a good photo. Have them looked at by a doctor preferably a dermatologist. ...Read more

So this morning i woke up with a bump on my head, i picked at it and it started bleeding. It has stopped after 5 minutes. Could someone help me?

No need to panic: Minor cuts on the head often bleed heavily because the face and scalp have many blood vessels close to the surface of the skin. Although this amount of bleeding may be alarming, many times the injury is not severe and the bleeding will stop with treatment you can do at home. Apply steady pressure for 15 minutes, this should stop it. ...Read more

Not sure if that head bump/bleeding warrants a trip to the er?

Maybe: If you have trouble with persistent headaches, any instability, behavioral abnormalities or are getting worse you may have a concussion or worse. If the bleeding is controlled you need to decide if the cut is large enough to need sutures. ...Read more

Have tiny skin colour bump on side of nose wont go away thought was white head used strip n made it bleed didnt go away what is this bump?

Have tiny skin colour bump on side of nose wont go away thought was white head used strip n made it bleed didnt go away what is this bump?

It could be nothing: That being said, it could be a basal cell carcinoma, although you are very young to have one. The nose is a common place for one to appear. You should see a dermatologist and have it removed/biopsied. Removal at this stage is generally the cure if it is a carcinoma. It is, however, at your age, most likely just a cyst of some kind. ...Read more

Skin infection: This sounds like a skin infection which is common in that area of the head. Don't scratch or peel the skin eruptions. Clean it with soap and water, apply Some antiseptic cream on it (no hydrocortisone !) and see your PCP soon. This infection can be very resistant and can rapidly spread. ...Read more
