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.

Good morning, my daughter is 9 years old, she has always suffer of a lot of nose congestion, she has a lot of mucus at all times, i have taken her up to many doctors and all they do is give her antibiotics in excess, the mucus stops for a while but comes back, her teeth have some stains due to the antibiotics the dentist says.

I recently had one side of my nose cauterized. My doctor prescribed me aquaphor(petrolatum) ointment and neilmed sinus rinse. the second night after the cauterization, I rinsed my nose with the saline solution. it didn t work too well. i felt like a sponge absorving some of the saline solution although most of the solution did come out from the other nostril. But I spent the next three hours waking up because of a runny nose. but this mucus and blood secretion was very acidic or corrosive. almost like as if i had inhaled cayene powder. that same night i developed a flu like symptoms, with fever, headache, nasal congestion, sore throath, burned lips and tongue. then most of the syntoms vanished one day later except for the nasal congestion. i read somewhere else that i may have had a mucal purulent discharge from the mucus trapped since long time ago. yesterday i tried to do another sinus rinse but am afraid of getting the flu again. what should i do?

Hi, My daughter is 3 yrs 5 months old. she had adenoitis when she was 3 and was treated with anibiotics. However, since then, she is constantly having blocked nose, cough which at times is dry and other times productive. She was again suffering from blocked nose and snoring for the last 3 days so I gave her flomist spray. one puff in each nostril last night, which really helped to relieve the nose. For how many days can I give her the spray? Also is it safe?
