My baby is 7 months. She has a white spot below her chest since she was 4 months I think she also has oral candidiasis. Plz advise?

Thrush and spot?: Ask her pediatrician to get a look at the white spot at her next visit. Do any family members have such a "spot" does she have any other areas like this? How large is it? What shape is it? How is the baby's growth? This may or may not be related to the thrush. Thrush is a thick white coating on her tongue which you cannot scrape off. This will require a prescription anti fungal treatment. ...Read more

5 month old baby has a circular red spot about the size of a pea on his chest for about 4 days. Not getting larger or fading. Should it be reviewed?

Red mark: Is it flat or raised, does it fade with pressure? It could be a hemangioma flat or strawberry, they are benign vacular skin conditions, flat hemangiona fade away with time, strawberry hemangioma tend to get bigger then they start to shrink. It is best if you show it to your pediatrician during the next well visit. It can also be an insect bite, or pressure mark from a button or a snap. Good luck ...Read more

Is dtr an infant?: If your daughter is an infant, it is most common to have breast buds that are noticeable after delivery, triggered somewhat by your elevated female hormones during pregnancy. Typically these can be m&m-sized and mobile. Unless painful, red, swollen, or oozing pus, most likely this is a normal variant.
She must be certainly due a checkup sometime soon. Call and schedule her checkup soon. ...Read more

I have a spot on my nipple which I've had for a while now when I try squeeze it white puss comes out I'm wondering if anyone could tell me what it is?

Possible Abscess: It could be an abcess or possibly benign nipple discharge. Without an exam or seeing what the discharge looks like it is hard to say. Nipple discharge in a woman who is not pregnant or breast-feeding isn't necessarily abnormal, you should be evaluated by a doctor to be safe. ...Read more

I have a blood red colored spot in the center of my chest, two inches above my nipples about 3/8 of an inch round the area itches

This: This could be a cherry angioma, irritated nevus, psoriatic patch, etc. There are multiple possibilities. The only way to be sure is to have it checked out by your doctor or dermatologist.
You may even need a biopsy if the doctor deems it necessary. If the itching bothers you try over the counter Hydrocortisone cream or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) as directed.

I have a cafe au lait spot the size of a pea next to my nipple sometimes it hurts and sometimes just my nipple hurts. What does that mean?

Tender cafe au lait: These as small flat pigmented birthmarks. They are sometimes (if more than 6 and larger than 5 mm before puberty) a sign of neurofibromatosis and needs to be checked. Assuming this isn't the case - I think its benign and nothing to worry about - I suspect your pain may be coming from the nipple - perhaps from excessive irritation from your bra. Cafe au lait are usually benign. Good luck ...Read more

I have a spot in my areola and it's itchy also my nipple itch and it seemms my areola is bigger than the other side I hae this for 2 months?

Dry Skin: Areolas can get dry in the winter just like other skin. Use a scent-free lotion or ointment like eucerin calming cream. If you notice anything else with that breast: discharge that is red or greenish, red tender or swollen areas, palpable lumps, or if the skin starts to look like an orange, see your physician. Also, women's breasts are rarely symmetrical, so having a larger areola is normal. ...Read more

A few mths ago I got a small but painful bump on areola below nipple. Went away after a week. Today I woke up with the exact same bump in same spot.

A few mths ago I got a small but painful bump on areola below nipple. Went away after a week. Today I woke up with the exact same bump in same spot.

Infected milk duct: This bump can represent a blocked milk duct. The areola has 17-19 milk ducts which get larger with pregnancy but can get infected. I would try putting heat on it and see if it decreases in size. If not, or if it keeps recurring, I would see your health care provider to determine whether you need antibiotics for a smoldering infection in the duct. Sometimes it spontaneously resolves. ...Read more
