Customer Question
Hi i am a...

Hi i am a 15 year old and i have small bumps on my fore head i have tried many things to get rid of them but they just get worse what should i do/

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that makes your head feel worse or better?

I have been dealing with this for about almost a year they started around last summer but they were not that bad but know they have gotten worse

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

I used a dandruff shampoo that they said was good for geting rid of them i saw many videos on youtube that it worked but it did nothing for me all it did was give me dry dead skin on my forehead

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

Susan O.USA

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

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!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

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.
