Detailed Answer:
Brief Ans-Bump On the left Forehead ?Bug bite/Mosquito bite/Under Investigation

Hi,XXXX.Thanks for updated information.I understand Your worry.
I studied your updates.Dear You need not worry as it is a benign and Non-cancerous Lump,mostly from Insect Bite over night.

My Opinion/and Reasoning-
Based on the picture report and In My opinion,You seem to have a Bedbug bite / or mosquito bite or could be a boil in early stage.
Possibility of bedbug bite /or/ mosquito bite is more,as you had it overnight.
Itch,which has developed lately,confirms the bedbug bite/or/mosquito bite.
Suggested Treatment-
I would suggest following care for My patient in my clinic-
In any case, I would suggest You to apply Cortizone 10 -Cream Locally,which would regress this lump- in a day or 2.
IF no regression of the lump and the pain increases or lump grows,I would suggest you to -
-take Tab Motrin 400 mgm,and
Cap Mox-250 mgm 1 three times per day,which would control the growing lump,being a Acne / Boil in early stages.

Impression-Non-Cancerous Benign Lump-Either Insect Bite? or could be due to Acne / or Infective Boil on Left Forehead.
This would Regress in 3-5 days time with treatment above.
If no relief after 3-5 days time,Then I would suggest You to have Second Opinion from Dermatologist,who would work out other possibilities and would treat accordingly.

Suggestion-
So Don't Worry,as this lumps is benign and is not Cancerous.
Take Treatment under cover of your Family Doctor as suggested above.
IF no relief with suggested medicines above,Consult Dermatologist if need be.

Hope this reply would explain all your queries of this health issue and would resolve the worries with it.

Welcome for any further query in this regard,Which I would love to reply in next session.

If You are satisfied with this reply,Will appreciate YOU,to write excellent feedback review comments of your experience,only to help the needy patients like you,at HCM.
