I had this extremely small what I thought was a skin tag or flesh colored mole. After biopsy, turned out to be a very small basal cell carcinoma. They are going to do a ED& C procedure on it. I have a few questions. Wouldn't the biopsy have already taken it off since it was so minute? Also how long does this procedure take? Do they go really deep? She told me they do it 3 times. If I were to do nothing, would it be dangerous to let it go?

I had molluscum on my pubic region which the doctor treated, and said cleared up about two months ago. Today i noticed a bump there, which is very small, maybe 1mm or less, is pinkish, and has a hair which i'm not sure if it's coming out of the bump, or is sort of next to it. Can i send pictures and get an opinion?

My daughter has tiny scattered specks on some of her

My daughter has tiny brown scattered specks on some of her fingers. They are the size of teeny tiny pepper. She is 13JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?Customer: No, she cut her finger on a kitchen knife but I must say that it was a very clean cut that almost 100% healed. She wanted me to mention that . I don't think it has to do with it as her cut is almost healed. But she said the specks were on the cut finger and now they are on other fingers. Have not seen a doctor. We don't have insurance. Just moved and are not set up yet. It doesn't hurt or itch.JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?Customer: It's not painful at allJA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: http://www.justanswer.com/dermatology/8atkq-recently-noticed-tiny-grey-black-dots-fingertips.htmlJA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Dermatologist about your situation and then connect you two.Customer: It is similar to that link but not clustered. I'd say only 2 -3 specs on each finger.

33 year old female. 3-4 weeks ago starts to experience itch

33 year old female. 3-4 weeks ago starts to experience itch on both forearms. Thought it was due mainly to my anxiety about other life events. Itch still has persisted. Some redness and/or botch on arms. Getting in my head now and I feel itchy all over at random times. Itch level can be ignored for most part and not itchy all the time. Do have some itch in genital region. Went to a dermatologist today and she prescribed /clindamycin-topical and Triamcinolone. Said take 2x daily for 2 weeks and if not better we will explore other possibilities.I have not changed anything I have done, bathed or washed in. No change in diet.No fevers, weight loss or other obvious health issues. No noticeable or large lumps in groin, armpits or neck, though I thought I felt a moveable lymph node In posterior triangle.I do have cervical ribs and neck issues.Will these even work for this? I read about acne and pharmacist was surprised these were prescribed for this.What other issues could this be? Father and law recently died of esophageal cancer so I am worried it would be lymphoma??

I am wondering why my face looks worse than it ever has

I am wondering why my face looks worse than it ever has because I'm in Esthetician school and we perform facials on each other at least 3 times a week. I'm wondering why the pigmentation is there. Is it possible it's from birth control or from using retinal 3 times a week thank you
