Avatar m tn I have a 3 month old son and he has a small pea shapped "object" under his skin on the back of his head. Almost where his head and neck meet. When we touch it, it appears to move around. We are thinking this could be a cyst and non-harmful, but on the other hand we are concerned it may not be. Any thoughts?!! Thank you!
722369 tn?1230681074 It is like a small ball under the skin. The doctor said it was a fatty cyct and my daughter's was removed as an infant because it was by her eyebrow. My son has one on his neck and is only noticable when he looks to the side and turns his head. The doctor said it is fine and not in a bad place. If your childs is growing or changing colord you defenitally need to take him to the doctor. Hope this helps.
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 Im 16 years old and discovered a lump on the shaft of the penis just under the skin ( a long time ago (about a year) so i went to the doctor to check it out. He said that i most likely was´nt anything of concern but a few month later the lump came closer to the surface and started to come out from the bottom shaft of the penis. It had a oval form with about 3-4mm diamiter. This was almost painless and also the first one of these i ever had.
Avatar n tn I can find it with a bit of searching when I'm flaccid, but when I’m erect, it pushes to the surface and becomes much more noticeable. It’s hard, I can move it around under the skin, it’s completely painless, and not at all sensitive. I can even pinch it. I want to say it feels like a cyst but I’ve never really had one before and can’t be certain. It’s on the bottom-right, near the head, between the scar-ring from my circumcision (I was circumcised as an infant) and the glans.
Avatar n tn The soreness and swelling has already subsided, now it just looks like a flattened red lump. She said the cyst will return to normal size and will remain under the skin, so this could happen again. If so, I may need minor surgery to remove it. But overall, nothing serious.
Avatar m tn i forgot to say he is 20 months now and it is still there.
393893 tn?1283554830 Last night, my husband found a lump on the side of his neck. Took him to urgent care and the doctor there said he was pretty sure it was just an innocent swollen lymphnode but it needs to be closely monitored. Today we went back to the doctor and she said he actually has 2-3 swollen lymphnodes on his neck. She said the "c" word is not on her list but she is testing just to be safe. She is also testing for allergies etc. We will hopefully get the test results back tomorrow.
Avatar f tn Since a year ago, my armpit will sometimes swell up and become VERY painful to the point where I can't touch it. The lump always is deep under the skin. They usually last a few days at a time and cause sweating and mild fevers (though I was never known to have high fevers even when I'm very sick). No new lumps in my breasts. Could this have to do with my liver since I've had Hepatitis C my whole life?
251790 tn?1317316467 They will not have to take special care of it to make sure it doesn't get infected by n ot cleaning under the skin. To me, personally it is just sensable to get it done. It's not that big of a deal really, it heals up quickly. My son's did before his umbilical cord even came off and all I had to do was keep vaseline on it to keep it from sticking to his diaper.
Avatar n tn Tonight I noticed a lump that suddenly appeared under my skin -in my groin area again (it has been about 2 weeks since my last lump went away). I read up on ticks and do see that they tend to be found in the groin area on humans. One bit of inforamtion suggested that I dococument the lumps "stages" with a camera so as to make the description easier when I get to the doctor. I pulled out my camera and was shocked at what I saw...
Avatar f tn These symptoms slowly appeared and worsened after birthing an infant (who was also premature) and they present themselves more strongly alongside sporadic bouts of diarrhea: Mild weight gain even while dieting Extreme fatigue/napping GERD/Heartburn/chest pain Mostly constipation mixed with diarrhea Depression/anxiety/forgetfulness/brain fog Abdomen swells for no apparent reason Neck/jaw pain/swelling/pressure Scratchy voice Migraines, dizziness and back of neck/head pain Very cold feet and ha
Avatar f tn I would try the prednisone. Why not. It may stop the immune process in your breast. I agree antiobiotics only play a role as far as any secondary infection due to any area of the breast being open after a drain or biopsy, etc.
Avatar n tn The reasons I think this is a posiblity is that it often causes lumps under the skin (I have a smallish lumps under the skin of each thigh) and seems to be quite a common infection in Asia - which is where I was just before I started getting the initial symptoms. Do you think im going off the right path? Or is anyone familiar with this parasite?
Avatar n tn I still have a cold which includes thick yellow mucus (mostly in the morning), irritated throat, swollen lump in mouth on left top side below last tooth (no open sore but a lump under skin that was sore), that is going on week 4 now. I went to the doctor last week and he gave me Alegra D. Its been about 3 days with no change. Never had a cold last this long before.
Avatar n tn Just wanted to provide a little further update: It's been a little over a month since my last post above. In that time I have had some good luck and some bad luck, but have learned quite a bit. First, I have narrowed down the root cause of the red bumps around my eyes. It's clearly related to a reaction to food (in my case, it seems to be mainly anything having to do with milk). It also seems to relate to sugar and/or coffee.
Avatar n tn I had chills on one side of the body for a few days and then the rash appeared and the associated burning pain under the skin. Now around a month back, I started getting the chills and burning pain again so I went to my doctor and asked for Valtrex. There was no rash. He gave me a prescription and I took it for 2 weeks. There are still days when I feel significant burning pain. But no rash has appeared. I had a small surgery and was stressed out going into it. May be that triggered the virus.
Avatar n tn About 2 months I woke up with an itchy corner of my left eye lid, I thought I had been bitten by something in the night as there seemed to be a bit of lump under the eyelid. Anyway as the days went on the redness, itchyness and soreness grew and spread on that eyelid. And then it went to the other eyelid. All the time I was putting some pure aloe vera gelly on it and also some vitamin E oil.
499534 tn?1328707778 This can be a tough one..... How to test for deficiency... scratch skin test and or hair analysis is best What are the many many health benefits of Iodine? MANY! There are soooo many benefits to Iodine.....did you know that if you take Lugols at the first sign of infection it can help to destroy viruses, bacteria, etc.? How about at the first signs of food poisoning to neutralize toxins? Lets roll on this one with everyone joining in.
Avatar n tn Since then, I have continued to experience the discharge with some regularity (this has continued for over a year), and the discharge has remained the same - still think and white, and still needs to be extracted even though I can see it underneath the skin or it may begin to protrude on it's own. Also, a month or two after the first one started, I began to check out the other nipple. If I poked around at it - I could get similar results.
748543 tn?1463449675 In fact, it is my strong belief that TMD/TMJ should really be classified as a Craniocervical Disease and hence fall under the umbrella of medical coverage rather than treated strictly as a dental problem. To the Neuromuscular-minded dentist, "Occlusion" is an extension of general Postural Consideration. In other words it is a part of a complete system of interrelated bones, muscles and joints that ultimately relate to the Trigeminal System.
Avatar n tn The dizziness and vibrations have calmed down but some days I will notice my legs are quivering or see the muscles moving under the skin. The arch on my left foot was affected by the foot drop and it is now higher than my right foot. That affects my walking as I am down on one side. I can walk about five steps and then I have to stop as I go sideways. I have left sided weakness, which affects my balance and coordination. The numbness in my fingers and hands affects my fine motor skills.
Avatar n tn I too was experiencing severe pain near my belly button. I could also feel a small lump underneath the skin which was extremely tender. There was very little swelling and redness. I went to the ER and they said it was a small umbilical hernia. I wasn't satisfied with the diagnoses because the pain was to persistent. I went back three days later and managed to get a competent doctor. Come to find out after a catscan it was Cellulitis. Repeat CELLULITIS was the cause.
Avatar m tn Shell, did you know Tysabri and other human antagonistic monoclonal antibody drugs were developed by companies under the direction of the Department of Defense. Now WHY would the DoD want to have a drug made? They are stockpiling these drugs and Inhalation Anthrax drugs under something called Project Biosheild 1. Soldiers are being used as test bed subjects for these medications without their consent. I met a woman who was AI ill as was her Husband (a soldier).
Avatar f tn There is no lump or indication of any foreign body under the skin. I'll post the diagnosis if I get any joy from the NHS. Kenny make sure to do the same if you find out what it is.
Avatar f tn Burning skin feeling and a hot feeling at bottom of back. Get hot red sunburn like rash on buttocks and thighs with a flushed very hot face and sometimes shivers - but this is lessening each time it happens. No further blister on my mouth but often have red raw patches then peel skin a bit and eventually dry up and heal.. Lips feel burny and itchy too when this happens. Also get raw sore throat which turns into mucus chesty cough.
Avatar n tn Just because you have a soft spot, and get headaches, does not mean that the soft spot has cause headaches. The skin overlying the skull can be indented to give the impression of a soft spot although the bones themselves may remain strong. Tumours are rare.
