I have strange “bites” or “rash”, please advise?

Trying to find out what these strange “bites” or “rash” places are. Small red bumps in nearly a “V” shape. They do NOT itch. Not really any pain or anything. Maybe something viral? I have had something going on with RUQ abdomen into lower area toward hip, intermittent pain and bouts of nausea. Not sure if it could be related. The area on back of upper left arm appeared 1 day ago (a few random spots on other areas of left arm, maybe 4 other spots), area on mid/upper left back appeared today. Thought possibly shingles but again, no itching or pain. Any ideas?

I’m worried that this mole could be skin cancer?

Hello. I’m worried that this mole could be skin cancer??? My dad is the one that has this. He says that when he pushes down on it, it feels like a nail going through. I’m also not sure if the mole has gotten bigger over the years. This mole, however, is hard & doesn’t feel fleshy at all. Please send me your opinion on this mole. Thank you.

I’ve had a skin infection for a month now, doctors have not been able to help?

I’ve had a skin infection for a month now as well as hives. First put on antibiotics but taken off after a few days and put on steroids as they believed hives were the issue and not an infection. The steroids helped the hives however the infection got worse. I’m now off the steroids after 5 day course, I have infected wounds all over my legs and arms and ear lobes, they have a yellow crust and red border, they are also very itchy. One on my arm has developed a red streak coming out of it over the last couple of hours, is this a sign it’s spreading? I have seen so many doctors over the past few weeks for this issue and I feel like theirs no point in going back as no one has truly helped me. Should I go back, or will this pass? Is it even a bacterial infection?

My granddaughter has an awful sore, doctor doesn’t know what it was?

My granddaughter came over for the weekend with this awful sore on her side. Her parents said they took her to the doctor and were told that they didn’t know what it was to put antibiotic cream on it. You should be able to see the small red dot next to the big sore. That red dot is starting to look like the other one. Any ideas on what it could be?

I was recently diagnosed with an Atypical Mole (Dysplastic Nevi), please advise?

Questions about atypical moles

I was wondering if you can help me with some (mostly neurotic) questions pertaining to some dysplastic nevi which I was recently diagnosed with. I’m currently suffering from health anxiety and tend to make the mistake of googling these health conditions as well. My dermatologist recently removed three nevi at my request, primarily for cosmetic reasons but also because I didn’t want to obsess over them changing anymore. She did shave biopsies, one came back as mild dysplasia and the other two as mild/moderate dysplasia. She indicated that no further treatment is needed. Last year, I had two other larger moles removed which were biopsied and normal, and I had about five larger (but no bigger than a pencil eraser) removed by my primary care doctor seventeen years ago (a dermatologist had actually clinically diagnosed them as normal a year prior to that). Unfortunately, he had used electrodessication and currettage without biopsies after saying they were normal clinically (not sure if they were moles anyways, possibly seborrheic keratosis?); all that are left now, seventeen years later, are flat white hypopigmented areas and no reoccurrence of pigment or other changes has taken place where they were removed ( I would think if they had been dangerous I would have seen major changes by now and perhaps wouldn’t even be here). Given the above, that is a total of about ten larger -sized moles which I’ve had; any other pigmented spots which I have are sun spots, freckles, etc. There is no history of diagnosed melanoma in my family — my father did have some strange pigmented lesions on his back, but I know for a fact that he had them for over twenty years (he would’t go to a dermatologist) and he died from cardiac arrest — I’m thinking that perhaps they were seborrheic keratosis, which I understand can resemble melanoma. I am vigilant about having professional skin cancer screenings done, and as a matter of fact just had a free one which a local cancer hospital sponsored…all was fine.

Based upon all of that information, do you feel that there is any need for me to be concerned about FAMMM
(familial atypical mole malignant melanoma syndrome)

I also see that there is an atypical mole syndrome which increases your chance of melanoma. So far I’ve only had ten larger moles (about the size of pencil erasers), all of which have been removed– two were normal on biopsy, three mildly dysplastic, and the five removed by my primary care doctor 17 years ago were not biopsied. Other than that I have about 35 other smaller freckles/moles (I’m not sure how to distinguish them), the largest of which look like the ones in the attached image of my arm. Is it safe to say that I don’t appear to have atypical mole syndrome (I understand that usually has HUNDREDS of moles)?

I’m attaching an image of my back; you may see some hypopigmented areas from where my doctor removed lesions seventeen years ago and red spots, which are areas which my dermatologist just treated with cryosurgery and some with electrocautery. The second image is of my upper arm, just to show you the other types of freckles and sunspots which i have in other locations. Age:50 Female

My 14 1/2 year old daughter has been getting a little bruise looking purplish rash on her earlobe for about a year?

Hello all. I am very worried. My 14 1/2 year old daughter has been getting a little bruise looking purplish rash on her earlobe for about a year. It lasts a few days then goes away completely. It returns every other week, sometimes once a month. I mentioned it to her doctor last year, and he did a cbc, and said it was normal, no need to worry. This week, she had a small one on her face, so I took her to the doctor. They ran a bunch of blood tests. CBC w/diffential, Metabolic panel, Bleeding time, PTT, antinuclear. The doctor said everything looks good, that it is idiopathic, but not ITP because her platelets are NOT low. I was worried about lieukemia. That is why I took her. I want to believe that these things just happen, can you please shed light on this? Please help me, I am so scared. during visit before bloodwork , doctors called it petechiae or purpura, on the internet it was all bad and scary reasons for these. Can these really happen for no reason? They told me no treatment needed.



My daughter developed a rash on legs, may have been bug bites?

My daughter (24yo caucasian) recently had an overnight layover in Xianmen China and noticed the next day what looked like bug bites over much of her body. The bites are not itchy, but there is a growing irregular shaped dark red rash around most of them. The attached photo shows the progression from mild redness on day 2 to dark red irregular rash on day 4. She doesn’t think she has a fever, but has felt some perhaps unrelated instances of nausea and headache. She’s currently in Japan for an extended stay.
