Bumps under skin near ear

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps under skin near ear


125112 tn?1217277462 These last few years, I have developed another firm, non movable lump just under it but oddly, it seems to reduce in size a little. They are near perfectly round. They do not hurt and no discoloration of the skin. Occasionally my ear aches just a little on that side. The reason I now question it, is: 1) occasionally I have tongue discomfort on the right side and underneath it 2) occasionally my thyroid is tender on that very same side.
Avatar n tn Hard painful bumps under my scalp, near the ear...what are they? i am 16 years old.? okay so the first bump i got last friday..it went away after 2-3 days...it was right under my right ear lobe...then it was all fine...i woke up on thursday i got another bump/lump which is really hard it is on my right occipital bone its as big as a dime ..then i woke up on friday and got another bump near my left ear..which was hurting a bit when i pressed it(size of a pea)..
Avatar m tn The metallic smell and taste eventually passed, but the bumps kept emerging all over my body. I feel a lot of small lumps under the skin of the arch of my right foot. When I squeeze them, they itch terribly, but the skin is too thick to allow them emerge, but I can feel something "run" under the skin. Gravity seems to play a role, as well.
210459 tn?1197085792 ok on the right side about an inch under my ear and an inch from my jaw i have a hard lump under my skin that feels like its attatched to muscle thats there. there is a masquito bite on top of it but they dont seem to be related to each other. does anything know what the possibilities are of it being cancer? i am 15 turning 16 in September.
Avatar m tn A new symptom is that my throught is soar and more bumps have appeared. I have new bumps on the larger bumps on the back of my head.
Avatar f tn 4 days ago I noticed a painful swelling in front of my right ear (near my jawbone). After some investigation, I noticed what appeared to be a pimple just inside the part of my ear next to my cheek. This also was very painful. At times, the pain would shoot up my head. 2 days after I noticed this lump, I went to see my PCP. He looked inside my ear and said I had a blind pimple that was causing the lump. He said it was best to leave it alone and it could take 7-10 days to go away.
Avatar n tn to them like zits and are not open sores. They are just little lumps attached under the skin. . really weird. It might just be my imagination, or wishful thinking, but I believe the first set of bumps is starting to recede. I can't be sure. I just became sexually active again after a 3 year hiatous. I've never had these symptoms before. I've only had one other sexual partner and that was when we were both virgins, the girl I am with now was a virgin before me.
Avatar m tn ( Funny thing is I'm not depressed, my life was quite good until this bug showed up. I can feel them crawling under my skin, they hang out in my ear (not sure if under the skin or just in the canal) all day, it's gross. No one in the house (my wife and 3 kids) can feel them. My wife has bites all up and down her legs and even a protruded ring looking this on her forearm. As you might have imagined I'm loosing my mind and life, nothing is the same.
Avatar f tn I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again. i can't find ANYTHING online that looks like it.
Avatar n tn Also, nine days before this all started i was taking Augmentin for an ear infection. However, once these red bumps started to appear i discontinued use of the drug. But now it is still getting worse. it has been 24 hours since i quit taking the drug.
Avatar n tn they are on my forhead, my eyebrows, behind one ear and also get these sore bumps on my scalp that turn into a crusty itchy patch. I did show it to my husband's Dr. who said it was an allergic reaction or else sebborhea. I am doubting the allergic reaction because I am now using a medicated shampoo, no hairspray and only dove soap and have this three months. I searched the net for info on seborhea and other types of dermitis and everything says red, mine is not red.
Avatar n tn i have i dimeish size lump behind my left ear near the middle back and 2 smaller size ones in my right ear...i have a cartalidge peircing in my right ear but im pretty sure thats not the cause. it kind of hurts to touch them...it like a bruise thats benn healing for a while. they are a little soft to touch..a little. they are not hard or soft...kind of inbetween . they dont move around....what are they?
Avatar n tn I have a two bumps. One behind my ear and one under my armpit. What does it mean? I ask my doctor about the one behind my ear he told my it had something to do with fine hairs, I asked anther doctor about it and she told me it could be assist and that i couldn't remove it because it was attach to one of my mane glands. I recently just discover another bump under my armpit, both on my major glands i havn't seen a doctor yet, but i don't have to know something is wrong with me.
Avatar n tn hi, i have a small lump under the skin behind my left ear, it changes shape every so often and now there is another smaller one further up, it doesnt hurt and i cant feel it. its near a birth mark, should i be worrried?
Avatar n tn I recently felt what feels like a lump under my sternum, it feels like its connected to my sternum and only way i even relized he was there was because i was feeling around my stomach area one day. It really doesnt bother me but lately ive been noticing it more and more. I dunno if its all in my head just because i found it. Im just wondering if I should go see a doctor, ive read of the xiphoid process and im not sure if thats what it is.
Avatar n tn i hope i'm not offending u but what if there is no discharge. i have absolutely none.my problem is the itching, especially on my right side of my "lip". it feels as if bugs are scurrying under my skin.
Avatar f tn The right side is more sparse (which is weird) and they are the most prominent on the skin near my nose. The bumps are quite small and more my natural skin color than red. They give my skin a rough bumpy appearance under the light and I have no idea what it is. It's not particularly itchy either, but my skin feels like sandpaper and is quite dry. I'm not sure if it's because I'm allergic to my facial wash, or it was because of my diet, but this sort of thing has never happened before.
Avatar f tn My problem in the left side of my head has come back after being silent for a short time in summer. I have pain sometimes under the ear, sometimes in or behind the ear. Temple pain has not occurred recently. The pain comes most often in early morning hours. I had also some congestion up in my nose, when I was in bed. Very viscous postnasal drip has slightly increeased. I have had postnasal drip for more than ten years. In the autumn I have had red flecks in mouth mucosa and sticky saliva.
Avatar f tn My skin sometimes gets really red and blotchy on my neck, upper arms and upper chest. Not sure what causes it. It seems to come and goes whenever it wants...It's never itchy or raised, but does feel slightly warm to the touch. It gets annoying and embarrasing at times, people think I have a sunburn or rash. Does anyone know what is going on & how to stop it?
Avatar n tn It is a sort of itching sensation and then a sensation that there is something crawling under my skin. When I rub it with my fingers it disappears for a while but inevitably it returns within a few minutes. There is no pain involved. Would be interested to find out if there is a medical explanation for this!
Avatar n tn and it is very very common on the chest and back. easily treatable. you'll need a prescription. skin cancer comes by way of scaly sores, weird bumps , lesions etc. the abcd's of melanoma should be known to you. look for a=assymmetry(if you divide a spot down the middle one side looks different than the other, like one side is much bigger or shaped different. b=border, most lesions should be typically uniform around the edge, sorta rounded.
Avatar n tn they are not connected and i have a skin tag on my neck and under my armpit. but these are in my anal area and one on my labia. Im confused.
Avatar m tn actually it has been 2 and half months ago i got two bumps on near to both side of my nose (upper the mastard area) and suddenly after two , three days later at night i found that i have so many hard small lumps under my skin all over near to forhead and near to both eyes ...
Avatar f tn On Aug. 29th, I noticed 2 large bumps under the skin near my anus. They were not itching, but were painful only when I pressed on them. On Aug. 31st, I saw a doctor. She wasn't sure what it was, but she took a culture for yeast and did a test for STDs. Both came back negative, BUT the STD test would have been done too soon to detect herpes -- it takes 2-3 months for antibodies to appear in a blood test.
Avatar n tn I have had dry, swollen, cracked, peeling skin on my eyelids which has become progressively worse over 7 years. Have been prescribed cortisone but only is an overnight cure. Is this exceme? or psoriasis? or allergies? How can I get over this??? HELP!!!
Avatar n tn It was more like it kept them at bay, but they seemed to remain under the skin. It's hard to explain exactly, but it was sort of like the Mupirocin kept new bumps from developing as rapidly, but couldn't really clear up the ones that seemed to be deep in the skin near the folds of my eyes (at the corners). I used it 3 times a day for about 10 days. After about 7 days, a new batch of bumps showed up, so I discontinued its use.
Avatar n tn Besides for the blister style bumps, I have traditional dry skin eczema on my thighs and back of arms. These are bumps and itchy with major dry patches but without liquid.That problem Eucerin or any fragrance-free, potent, extreme dry skin or itch relief lotion helps. You do have to be diligent in applying often and it helps to apply RIGHT out of the shower so that your body does not dry out and absorbs the moisture while your pores are still open.
Avatar n tn I have had Red bumps mostly on my chest and upper Arms, while they are not itchy, they look like small lumps of blood trapped under the skin, i have had these lumps for at least the last ten years...
Avatar n tn If they are bumps in the vaginal area UNDERNEATH the skin then they could be Bartholin cysts. They're caused when fluid is blocked in the gland either by infection or a physiological problem. The cysts are not caused by diet and you can't get them from others. Also can't be prevented. They're really nothing to be alarmed about (they're actually somewhat common for women) For most part they go away on their own but if they become painful or warm to the touch they are infected.
