    Weird lump

    A few days ago I found a random lump that just appeared near my vagina but no where close to the opening or the clitorus. It’s slowly going away but I’m still worried about what it is. It’s like a lump under my skin and it’s barely starting to form a pimple like bump.

    Rash around armpits now spreading to leg/crotch area

I visited a dermatologist who gave me something that says "triamcinolone acetonide ointment usp 0.1%" on the tube. When applied to the affected area, it seems to make the rash clear up pretty quickly, but only temporarily, then it comes back again within a couple....

    1 year old baby girl finger tip cut off help

    Dear All, My 1 year old baby girl index finger tip (half of her nail) was cut off completely by scissors when she reached in by accident 3 days ago. A small chunk of finger tip and about half of her tiny nail came off and we rushed her to ER to stop the bleeding. No bone was showing and it was about 1/8 of an inch of her finger tip. We are very concerned parents not to mention the guilt we have. The pediatrician recommended a plastic surgeon clinic to get an opinion for the wound and recovery which....

    Found in hair (was told it’s not lice)

    What is this? Found in my hair. I’ve had lice before and sent pic to the lice professional who said this had too many legs to be lice (looks like 7 or 8). I have a huge bug phobia and I can’t handle the anxiety of all this.

    Raised dry sore on scalp

    Hi. So I have a dry, flaky, raised sore on my scalp. It hasn’t grown in size, but it won’t heal. I’m certain it’s not psoriasis. What is it? I have a bad habit of touching if, but I just want it to go away. I also notice that some hairs in that area of the area grow in very thick and wirey looking. Is that a completely type of scalp condition? These issues truly drive me crazy.

    Doctor questions

    Seriously people? Some of the questions you have on this, direct them to the doctor. The community, most part are not a doctor, can only give suggestions. But smart people would ask a doctor. Not some random person on a community blog. I want to believe everybody is smart, but some of these questions are definitely not.
