I cant figure out how to do this...but...you can't actually see anything on the skin...I can feel it when I run my hand across my forehead. It feels like a round bump. Not painful

Since when is the bump?

How big is it?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I've noticed it for the past few months. Not sure exactly when. The entire circumference fits under the tip of my forefinger, so less than 1/2 inch in diameter

This lump is likely to be;

1) Lipoma

2) Dermoid.

These are the two commonest lumps on the forehead.

These are benign and if they are acceptable cosmetically, no treatment is required. Otherwise a surgical excision may be done, which is an outpatient procedure.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

it's not necessary to consult my physician, correct?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I have one other issue, which is separate, is it ok to ask that?

There is not emergency, but when you go for your annual check up, you may consult about it.

Please ask the other question too.

1 1/2 months ago, I took an antibiotic for a si us infection. Since then, I have had problems with cracking at the corners of my mouth, recurring yeast infection, and red rash in my underarms. The rash has abated but comes back episodically, and the cracking by my mouth is not noticeable but is uncomfortable. Are these things related to the antibiotic and what is the treatment?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
You have been super helpful and I will fill out the questionaire when we are done

This may be due to antibiotic. There is cause and effect relationship. Following may help you;

1) Probiotics; over the counter.

2) Zinc supplement; no prescription is required.

3) Application of hydrocortisone cream 0.5% at corners of mouth and rash at underarms. This is ialos without prescription.

These are likely to resolve it.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
