About a week ago I started to form a red tender bump next to my nipple on the areola. I have gotten these before and didn t worry at first. As time went by it never seemed to decrease in size, and is now showing a purple/black spot in the middle of it. If I run my fingers over it, it gives me a burning sensation. I m 22 years old and very worried it could be serious. Any feedback would be appreciated, I plan to go to my local clinic tomorrow, but would like a different opinion here. Thanks!

My daughter is 9 yrs old is developing her breasts early. Friday she noticed a bump on her areola and said that the area around her breast was itchy and then the bump started to burn . After her shower last night, she dried her body and the skin fell off the bump (like a scab I suppose). It now looks deep red like an open soar and it burns she says. What could this be?

Is it safe to take biotin while receiving laser hair removal treatments on the body? I m in between sessions of having the hair permanently removed on my arms and legs but am also trying to grow my hair longer and thicker on my head. I wanted to start taking biotin for hair growth however I do not know if this is counterproductive to the laser treatments and cause an increase in hair growth in places I do not want to see the hair (arms and legs).
