Night! I have a small, mole-like lump on my back and thighs, sometimes itchy, if I scratch it hurts. Ask for an explanation
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A mole (nevus) can appear as a small, blackish or brownish lump. A mole normally won't cause any uncomfortable sensations, be it itching or pain. Therefore, it is possible that the complaints you experience occur due to other causes.
Often times, several other conditions can cause a mole-like lump that is accompanied by itching and pain, for example:
Acne vulgaris (acne, inflammation of the pilosebaceous glands) Folliculitis (infection of the hair follicles) Impetigo (bacterial infection) Milia (deposition of keratin in the pilosebaceous glands) Contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin due to contact with irritating substances, or due to allergies to certain substances that come into contact with the skin ) Sebaceous cysts (fluid-filled sacs that form in the oil glands) Cutaneous candidiasis (Candida sp. Yeast infection) Miliaria (prickly heat, inflammation of the sweat glands) Benign or malignant tumors on the skin, etc. Identifying the origin of a lump requires direct physical evaluation by a doctor. In addition, in some conditions additional examinations are also required, for example a skin biopsy to determine the type of cells that make up the lump. Therefore, don't delay to check with your doctor or skin specialist.
The initial treatment you should do:
Not scratching and pressing on the bumps Wear clean, loose clothing and pants. Bathe diligently, use an antiseptic soap suitable for your skin type. Do not exchange clothes, pants, or towels with other people. Do not apply anything to the bumps unless recommended directly by a doctor Hope it helps yes..
