Customer Question
I have an itchy...

I have an itchy raised bump on my fore arm about the size of a dime, it is pinkish red in color

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

About two days now, and i haven't been trying to treat it.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I just got over a cold this past week, and i'm still feeling a little weak from that

my girlfriend got a puppy a few weeks ago and he's had some issues with fleas
although i don't believe i'm allergic to dogs as i grew up with a dog
Dermatologist: Dr. Chip, General pratice replied 11 months ago

OK

Just asking since this could be an allergic dermatitis

I don't think it's fungal like ringworm

But it's nothing at all serious

For now I'd suggest over the counter 1% hydrocorisone cream twice a day for a week and some oral Claritin or Zyrtec

That should clear it up

Please let me know if you need any more information

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
