Brief Answer:
Moles not worrisome, elaborate on bumps on chin please

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. I do not think moles should be cause for concern at her age, but I would like to visually examine both the bumps on her chin and the wart on her finger.

If you do not mind, could you please attach clear images of the spoken regions to our discussion or email them to me at:


But honestly, the wart could be from a virus like HPV (human papilloma virus) which in majority of cases can be totally innocent. There are many variants of the virus, and the less worrisome variants usually cause warts in regions other than the genitalia. You can still choose to visit a dermatologist just to make sure all is well, but I honestly feel there is nothing to worry about.

I look forward to helping you further, so please do not hesitate to write to me about anything, and of course with those clear images as well.

Best wishes.

Brief Answer:
These are quite clearly blisters and not simple bumps

Detailed Answer:
Hello once again.

Thank you for the image.

These are quite clearly blisters which could be due to causes like:

+Hot fluid contact
+Hot temperatures
+Allergic reaction/hypersensitivity reaction
+Reaction to substances like poison ivy, metal allergies, powders, detergents, deodorant, etc.
+Impetigo (less likely from the images)

I would request you to take her to a child specialist who can help prescribe medication and also look into causes like the ones listed above an a few others. I can see from the images that she is happy and comfortable, and hope she continues to be the same. But please do take some time out and visit the pediatrician.

I look forward to hearing from you after the doctors visit, and hope this is a simple issue that can be very easily solved. Please feel free to write to me anytime, I am always here to help you.

Best wishes.

My mom is suffering from Hypersensitivity pneumonitis, she was diagnosed with this disease 5 years back and got complete recovery however recently she started getting same symptoms and the CT is more severe than before...her pulmonologist has put her on prednisone and asked us to wait for 2-3 months to see how much she recovers. He hasn't asked for any other test except WBC count check.

I am very much worried and wants to know the severity this time, Since her lower lungs show some honey combing (slight) + some amount of intralobular nodules and septal thickening, i am more worried. Though after studying many cases i have found that such CT images are present in HP patient. I just want to know what is the difference between Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and hypersensitivity pneumonitis. What kind of pathological tests determines the difference?

I had severe hypersensitivity pneumonitis in 2005, my chest swelled within minutes and my ribs cracked. Scar tissue on bottom 1/3 of lungs, IPF. Occasionally my chest will swell up within minutes, I have no idea why.
Age 60, weight 200, asthma, RA, pulmonary fibrosis, hypersensitivity pneumonitis.

Now I have rattles, per my GP, and my chest has expanded 4 inches. What causes this swelling, and is it an emergency with the rattles? No pneumonia on chest x-ray.
