I've had too little scabs on my arm that won't heal up I shave my arms they've been there for a couple of months?
Scabs: A "scab" would typically be considered an healing coagulated blood material with epithelialization occurring under the material. When it "falls off" the skin has healed under the scab. With chronic wounds (over weeks old) do not heal, then the material is a necrotic (dead) material. In wound care some form of removal (debridement) would be required prior to resolution. Antibiotics also used. ...Read more

My daughter 6months old, 3months premature has a hemangioma near her left arm pit and it's starting to form scab already. Is this bad?
Infantile Hemangioma: This sounds likely to be an infantile hemangioma (ih) and the scab is probably from ulceration due to stretching of the skin by the ih. If it is still growing, or if it is painful due to ulceration, and a pediatric dermatologist agrees that this is ih, then I strongly recommend that the child be started on oral propranolol. This is now known to be a safe and very effective treatment for ih. ...Read more

That's a lymph node: Whatever injury occurred to the breast is 'known' to your immune system - as evidenced by the 'activation' of the lymph node. That is a garrison of your immunity- and it likely is responding. I would show this to a doctor who can make sure it's nothing more serious. Primarily we need to know 'what' happened - to understand the disease process more fully. A full family history is also necessary. ...Read more
A small bump/rash has formed on arm at the site of her HPV shot in Oct. It looks like a scab but it’s raised w/some tiny bumps around it?
Doctor can check: The routine vaccinations we use in the US do not leave a scab at the injection site. Her doctor will want to examine the shot site, and want to know whether any skin breakdown happened spontaneously or was due to her scratching at the shot site. Her doctor will try to decide if there was an allergic reaction, a chemical reaction, or an infection at the shot site. ...Read more
