Question: Long descriptive question. I have dense body hair and several regular looking brown and red moles on my chest and body. About a week ago, I felt a burst sensation, like a pimple popping, under my right breast area. The spot appears to scab and bleed periodically....but is not healing. Every time I shower, the scab comes off. Center of the spot looks like one of the red moles and around the edge it is pink, like a scab area after the crust falls off. I'm honestly not sure if this is a pimple I did not notice or if one of the red moles somehow popped. Have an appointment with primary care Dr. soon but am concerned about what this might be.

Hi again,
The details provided by you point towards either haemangioma or sinus formation.However the possibility of squamous cell carcinoma cannot be ruled out.As the images are not available further narrowing down on possibilities is not possible.
Upload the photographs and we can continue the discussion.

Recent questions on  Nasal congestion

doctor1 MD

For the past month or so my right hand side nostril leaks 2-3 drops of clear fluid (no taste/smell) whenever I lower my head e.g. bend over, lie face down. No obvious inflamation/obstruction or recent cold, flu, or nasal/head/eye injury. I am male, mid 50's with no allergies, headaches, etc. and occassionally snore if lying on my right side (so I am told!) Septum has always been slightly 'curved' towards right hand side so nasal lining will touch sides during a cold. Non smoker. My partner cannot see any obvious nasal obstruction/swelling/lump but cannot see as far up the right nostril.

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...My 12 year old daughter has a red burning sensation under her left eye and on her cheek. This happens on and off for her and symptoms go away. She has regular issues with stuffy nose and recently has acquired a cold complicating her stuffiness. Are these symptoms indicative of an sinus infection? Should she seek medical attention? Might she need antibiotics?
