Raised pink bumps, some crusty in center on my sides. Was on vacay in WI dells, didn't appear until we got home. Not where swimsuit touched.

Raised bumps: It maybe a bug bite or a reaction to sun tan lotion. Either way if the bumps itch use some topical or oral Benadryl (diphenhydramine). You can use some topical over the counter cortisone 1% and use it for 4 to 7 days. If it does not resolve see your primary care doctor or your local dermatologist. Good luck and feel better! ...Read more

I I have some kind of bug bite. I just noticed it today. It keeps getting bigger. Its red around the center with a dark red dot in the center.?

Not unusual: Chemicals, foreign proteins, toxins, and enzymes are introduced from a bug bite and thus it is not uncommon that the reaction may get larger in the first 72 hrs. If pus develops, then the infection will need to be treated. If it itches, try topical hydrocortisone cream. If not, just leave it alone for a few days and see what develops. ...Read more

Yes: This could be implantation bleeding. Are you desiring pregnancy? Your depot shot typically lasts for 12 weeks as far as pregnancy prevention is concerned, but no birth control is 100% effective (other than abstinence), so women definitely get pregnant on the depot. Take a home pregnancy test if you're worried. If you aren't ready to have a child, consider a 2nd form of birth control. ...Read more

Can a anal boil after heal leaves it hy bottom or fistula? After healing start my itch and a pink mark in center, on coxis like a fistula by scratch

Anal abscess: A true anal abscess arises from anal glands up inside the anus. The gland gets blocked and infection makes it way to the outside via tract or fistula. When the abscess drains, the fistula tract dries up in 50% of cases. In the other 50%, one of two things happens. You either get a chronic draining sinus or another abscess. Both indicate a fistula remains. ...Read more

Implanation bleed: Implantation bleeding is much more common on the internet than in real life. It occurs rarely and exclusively in someone who is pregnant.

If it is negative then it is just irregular menstrual bleeding. ...Read more
