I have noticed that i have bumps on my scalp on the left side only that seem to be filled with fluid. its worrying me please tell me what it might be ? i also suffer from synus problem on the left side of my face and have head and eye aches too. i also suffered from infarcts in my brain last year and also had a infection in my left upper molars which went into my root canal and it was draining into my mouth. Plus I was told that my left side on my face the bone near the ear on my skull is pushing into the side of my ear. so as you can see there are lots of factors to consider

Dear Patient,
On the basis of information furnished by you, it is difficult to predict what you actually have on your scalp but it is unlikely to be realted with your sinus/dental or brain infarct problem.You have also not mentioned wheather there is pain or itching in scalp lesions. I would suggest you to consult with a Dermatologist. If possible you can send your photographs on this mail-

my husband has a small clear growth in his hair that has grown to size of a dime within 2 weeks. It is not soft nor hard but does seem to have a small amount of fluid. I do not see an ingrown area, nor any sign of a bite or infected tip on the growth. What could this possibly be?

My question is about my scalp. I just had a boil about the size of a quarter on the back of my head. It grew larger throughout today. I fell asleep and when I woke up I found myself sweating like I was sick. I was having lower back pain all day after my workout. I just popped the thing and I heard a burst noise. My whole thumb was covered with blood and puss. It continued to bleed for another 10 minutes. A smaller one started right next to it and I m waiting for that one to get bigger. But it was big the other day and then shrunk. Then the bigger one formed instead. I also have at least 3 soars on my head that won t seem to heal or heal very slowly. I ve had them now for about 3 months and I ve never had them before. The pimple/boils I ve had before. When I was in the military, after bootcamp I 3 of them form on my face. I popped them and instead of a little, tons of puss and blood shot out and practically covered the whole entire mirror and it was a big mirror. After that I stopped having them. I didn t start having them again until I started working out more heavily in the last 4 weeks. I smoked from 2006 until about 3 weeks ago when I quit smoking and embraced running. I haven t had any cigarettes since. What is this?

Hi, m having wisdom tooth pain, as it s not erupting fully and my dentist says it will never. Ideally it needs to be extracted, but as I am 30 weeks pregnant, I cannot afford to do that. So, he suggested me with novamox 500 3 tablets a day for 3 days to reduce the pain. But even after 3 days the pain remains the same. What m I supposed to do now?
