    Do I have a bacterial infection?

    Hello! So I recently was sunburned and peeled off my skin in the sunburn. Now I have a red bump where I started peeling and I'm scared I got a bacterial infection, more specifically the flesh eating disease and septic shock. I don't think I have any symptoms, I don't think I have a fever, I don't have any nausea or vomiting, The area that's red did burn a little earlier, but not more than any normal cut would. The only "symptom" I have (I don't really think this....

    Dye under skin?

    hello! so starting off, I decided to tint my eyebrow using "just for men's mustashe color". It worked great, however I decided I messed up and decided to rub it off and restart. However when starting again, my right eye brow was burning a tad bit, but I removed it and decided to reapply(smart I know), therefore after removing the dye I noticed that there was brown dye that seemed to be under my eyebrow skin. I'm guessing there was a wound created by the harsh scrubbing of the product....

    Brown Spot on Foot

    My wife has the following flat, brown spot on her foot. She thinks it may have gotten bigger. Doesn't hurt, isn't raised at all, it seems to be a discoloration. It's been there over a year. Any ideas as to what this is and whether it's a cause for concern?

    Reattached Fingertip

    I accidentally sliced off the top 3mm of a finger, (completely severed,) went to the emergency room, and they sewed it back on. The finger tip is now grey. I can't be sure exactly what is normal in a healing process with this type of injury. I don't expect it to be pretty, and I am aware of keeping my eye out for pus, and a bad, or even sweet smell. It isn't black, so I assume that is a good thing, but it has been about 56 hours since it happened.

    Eczema on difference parts of body

    About 4 years ago, I started to get eczema around my eyes, like a full circle that would cover all my eyelid, then go all the way round to underneath my eye, I've had it ever since and it only goes away when I use a small amount of hydrocortisone cream on it, I've tried using moisturisers for months at a time, but all it ever did was make it not itch for a few hours, never made it any less dry, the hydrocortisone will make it go for months at a time, and after 4 years, It will return as bad....

    I have 5 years and just kinda put it off

    I have had a bump on my thumb for about 5 years. I thought it would eventually go away, but it has not. I am not sure if it is a cyst or a wart.

    Hole in back

    I had a cyst for a few years on my upper back. Recently (3-4 months ago), it popped and drained on its own. However, since then, it has left a rather large, unsightly hole on my back. There was a "black rock" looking scab covering it for a month or so but that fell out after swimming. Now, it is back to just a hole. It just doesn't seem to be healing at all. I am a bit nervous about it. It doesn't hurt much unless I take a hot shower and water gets in it. Any advice or info would....

    Can anyone ID this bite/sting rash/wound? Doc's don't know

    A week and a half a go, I was in the backyard, and I vaguely remember a slight pain on my left leg. Later, the mark was noticeable and became worse and larger. It has even had white pimple-like bumps on it. The doctor has no idea, and wants all sorts of tests which will be very pricey. At first thought, I was thinking maybe brown recluse spider bite? But I have no idea at this point. Anyone have an idea of what this mark is? The 1st pic (less red) is from a today 6/14, the 2nd is from a week and....
