Hi, I have had a hard lump on my inner thigh for about 6 months if not longer now, it has always been about the size of a small pea untill a couple of days when I woke up and it was slightly swollen and sore. I ve just checked it again and it s now about the size of a grape and is getting sorer. I went to the doctors about it ages ago and they couldn t really diagnose anything and said to go back if it changes. I m booking an appointment tomorrow but I m sick with worry and could really do with some sleep tonight.... Could you help me please? I m a 20 year old male.

my daughter is 3 years old, soon to be 4. Tonight when I was putting her to bed, I noticed small bumps on the outer side of her palms, almost to the outer side of her hand. It wasn t there earlier today and I m not sure what could be causing it. I have dermatitis on the palm off my right had, so I asked if the bumps were itchy, and she said no. So, what could be causing this. She has no other symptoms, so I m stunned.
