Dr. P Jyoti :

Customer: by my elbow I scratched it off
Dr. P Jyoti :

well, then that wasnt a lymph node

Dr. P Jyoti :

you cant scratch off a lymph node

Customer: ok good
Dr. P Jyoti :

that would be a wart

Dr. P Jyoti :

a wart is a viral infection

Customer: a wart?
Dr. P Jyoti :

a wart is most likely

Dr. P Jyoti :

also a skin tag

Dr. P Jyoti :

nothing to worry about here

Customer: or maybe a bruise?
Dr. P Jyoti :

you do not have to do anything but do just keep a watch on that area

Dr. P Jyoti :

yes, it could have been just a scab also

Dr. P Jyoti :

a scab forms over a minor cut

Dr. P Jyoti :

this can be scratched off easily

Dr. P Jyoti :

so dont worry about this

Dr. P Jyoti :

keep a watch on the area

Customer: Ok it was a lump like a boil
Dr. P Jyoti :

if you see something else again, have it seen to by a doctor this time

Customer: i scratched it off.
Dr. P Jyoti :

a wart seems likely then

Dr. P Jyoti :

ok

Dr. P Jyoti :

if it was a wart there is a chance it could recur again

Customer: i have swollen nodes in my neck with other symtoms
Dr. P Jyoti :

so if you see something in the area again, show your doctor for this

Dr. P Jyoti :

but no other cause to worry for this
