Brief Answer: Possibility of submandibular lymph nodes Detailed Answer: Greetings They are possibly submandibular lymph nodes. There is no cause for concern if there are firm in consistency, less than 2 cm in size and not painful to touch. In many of normal individual these nodes are present and are likely to be due to oral pathology like carries tooth, gingivitis. I would suggest you a routine check up by dentist to rule it out.

Brief Answer: Cetrizine will be helpful Detailed Answer: Greetings Blanches means if you apply pressure with the finger and release it, it becomes lighter. It just goes to say the rash is not due to multiple tiny blood spots known as petechia which do not lighten up on pressure. Severe itching is usually seen in rash due to allergic reaction. Little itching can be managed by local application of Calamine lotion and antihistaminic like Cetrizine. Get back if you need further assistance Take Care Regards Dr T Shobha

Brief Answer: Blanching is good Detailed Answer: Hi Greetings of the day Blanching on pressure is a good sign. If the rash is due to bleeding it will not blanch. If you had a cut on the hand and you hit someone following which there is no pain ir bleeding from it then there seems to be no need for concern. Local application of framycetin ointment, keeping the area clean and dry will be helpful. In case you require any further assistance, will be glad to assist you. Take care Best Regards Dr T Shobha Deepak MBBS, MD
