Red skin lump

Common Questions and Answers about Red skin lump


Avatar n tn My 6 1/2-year-old daughter got a bug bite about 8 weeks ago that appeared to heal on the outside but not on the inside. It is still red, and I feel a lump under the skin. She says it doesn't hurt when I touch it. But it is not changing. One of our pediatricians has seen it three times over the last 8 weeks, and he advised leaving it alone and applying heat occasionally. But I'm concerned about it, since it's been such a long time. Advice? Thank you.

Avatar f tn Hi two weeks ago I had a red itchy lump close to behind ear area on the bones I was painful when I touch it after one day.
Avatar n tn I have a small (about the size of a pea) red hard lump on the top of my thigh. I went to the doctors and he said it was inflammation of the hair follicle. however that 8 weeks ago and its still a redish hard lump and im really worried its cancerous or something. im wondering whether if anyone has had something similar or whether an ingrown hair can cause that?
Avatar n tn I developed a red slightly raised rough skin lump just underneath my nipple about a week ago. It does not itch or hurt and is not getting any bigger. Do you know what this might be ?
Avatar n tn Hi there, Ive had this one spot near the upper base of my penis for a few years which is a lump that is most often red. I also get other red bumps around the area and at the base of my penis which sometimes are painful and i can pop. It is the main red lump im concerned about because its been years and has not gone away, I do not shave so its not razor burn or ingrown hairs I dont think. Ive been sexually active for about 8 years and have not used protection with some women.
Avatar n tn I found a lump under my armpit about a week ago, it is inflammed, red and hurts.
Avatar f tn I by chance this morning found a small (approx 3-4mm) lump on the skin of the labia major. The skin was smooth all over, slightly red with no pain. I actually picked in and surprisingly it came off easily, there was no puss, it did bleed a little bit but again did not cause pain. In my hand I held the tiny firm piece of tissue. When I squeezed, it stayed together and did not change form. There is no reddening around the skin where I picked it off from and barely a scab to be notice now.
Avatar f tn Yeah it does hurt a little , I think it's swollen a little but, it's not really red. It is near my left pant line.
Avatar m tn Hi, The lump may be limited to the skin which got infected when you tried to pop it, or it contained some pus in the first place (though this would generally be quite painful). It would be best to see a doctor. A review of your dressing habits, personal care products particularly for washing would be important. If you feel it is separate from the testicle, then odds are it is limited to the skin.
Avatar f tn However, this is usually not recommended in that these procedures may be too aggressive and cause further damage to the skin. It might sound painful, but if its a hair that's growing beneath the lump it could alleviate the pain almost right away....once removed make sure to apply alcohol or peroxide to disinfect the area...
Avatar n tn Took awhile for it to heal, now the skin is dark around the lump. Don't know if I bruised the skin or not. Is this something I should be worried about. Anyway I was wondering should I see my doctor or wait and see if it goes away.
Avatar f tn I am very confused at this point. I have always had this lump on the side of my right nipple. Lately it has been getting bigger. At one point last month, my nipple swelled up huge, and was extremley red. It had bumps on it and hurt soo bad. It went away after 2 weeks. Now i have it again. Same exact symptoms. They told me it was a sist and it will drain out or something. Strangley, i have it everytime i get my period. Is this something serious.. or is it just unblanced hormones? Please help.
Avatar f tn hello i have this lump above my vagina and at first it's just a little bump now it's red and looks like a boil. i think it showed up sometime after I shave. I usually shave before I get my period. Could the lump result from the shaving? how could i get rid of it? it's starting to like swell and it's a bit stingy when touched. HELP ME PLEASE!
Avatar n tn the lump seems to be getting smaller and it barely is tender to the touch. the lump has a light red shading on it and there is a very small but of dead skin on it. last night it was a little painful, but today it seems to be getting smaller and hurting less. i dont know if this would have to do with anything, but i used to masturbate. i dont masturbate anymorre. i am not sexually active at all, so it shouldnt be an STD/STI.
Avatar m tn I recently felt a small lump under my skin, and figuring it was a cyst that I could drain myself (dumb move), I poked at it with a needle. The area on the outside of my arm above the lump I poked out let out a small amount of dark blood, then became red and hard around the site where I poked the needle in. Will this go away on its own, or are there any ways to treat this?
Avatar f tn I have had a hard red lump on my leg for about 2 yrs now. It doesn't get bigger or smaller, it doesn't hurt either. Also, it doesn't move under the skin or anything. It appears to be a spider bite or something but its been there for almost 2 years. There is no white head, etc. Its about the size of a pencil eraser or just a bit bigger. Should this be looked at by a professional?
Avatar n tn I've one red lump on the right groin (it is a lump in the right hand side near panties) this lump appears during menstuation, after menstruation it decreases please help me!
Avatar n tn sometimes its nothing serious, it just gets irritated. could the red bumps appear from sweating? like being skin to skin?
Avatar n tn Around two weeks ago i found a big lump under my skin its on the inner side of my upper leg and has what looks like a white spot on the surface and round it the skin is red and purple , it doesn't cause any pain unless i touch it.

Avatar f tn hi, i have suddenly got a red lump on my penis shaft. its not painful but looks very scary. Should I visit a doctor ? Can someone recommend a good doctor in Gurgaon for this ?
Avatar f tn When i woke up this morning i noticed a red lump on my left breast. Its not raised on the skin but when i touch it i can feel a kind of ball shaped lump, just bigger than a pea i'd say. on the surface it's just smaller than the size of a 2p. one side of it is kind of blue looking,and the majority of it is red. its located to the left of my nipple. not directly on it, but about a cm away. before i jump to conclusions i just wanted to check someones opinion.
Avatar n tn hi,I have been having a little lump under the skin just on the left side of my cheeks next to the nose for last 2 started as a big infected pimple and I popped it and a big hole stayed in the skin.since then this lump like underskin 'pimple' is under the skin but still you can see the difference in skin colour over it on the surface- it is a light red- especially when I touch stands out from the rest of the skin as finacee is worried it could be cancer.
Avatar f tn It is also not very painful, however, there is definitely a red lump and the skin is peeling on it. Underneath the skin it looks slightly white ish. What do you think? Do you think I need to back to my docs? Is there anything I can do to help it? Thank you all so much in advance for taking the time to reply, I spend a lot of my time trying to pretend it's not bothering me but it really is.
Avatar m tn hi, i'm 19 and i've recently noticed a lump between my pubic region and my leg, it's about 2cm in diameter and it has a red spot on top of the skin, it just appeared about a month ago and it's got me worried, any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn I am something of a hypocondriac, so wanted your opinion on this. On my right underarm, I have noticed a smallish (about 3 or 4 mm) pinky red lump. It is circular, and smooth edged, but bumpy texture, like it is stuck onto the skin. Adjoined onto it, is a very tiny pink pimple like spot. It is fleshy coloured, but seems to fluctuate between light pink and red. If I touch it, it goes more pale.
