Customer Question
What looks to be...

What looks to be a red spot (blood vessel like) on my 11 year old daughter's bridge of nose for about a year. Has not changed in shape or size. Sometimes looks like whitehead and yields stuff like a pimple. Color lightens every once in a while. Does not hurt or itch.

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

Have derm appt in 45 min, hoping to skip that. Great health

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

Nothing at all. She is a healthy, active, 11 year old

You didn't answer my question about my daughter's nose - an hour plus later....
Dermatologist: DocPhilMD, Doctor replied 6 months ago

That actually looks like a small precancerous lesion called an actinic keratois

her skin type is highly susceptible to this

she needs to see a dermatologist and have that frozen

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.

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.
