What Is The Medicine Doctor?
Hello, I am 18 years old at the uluhati side I had a small lump at first it was really small like a pimple but when I pressed it but why did it get big
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Lumps on the skin around the gut that resemble pimples are not always caused by acne. It could also be, this lump appears because:
Other infections, for example:
Folliculitis (infection of the hair follicles)
Warts (viral infection)
Impetigo (bacterial infection)
Tinea corporis (fungal infection)
Skin tags (excess skin growth that is thought to be related to repeated friction or genetic factors)
Tumors, for example lipoma, cyst, melanoma
Contact dermatitis (skin inflammation that occurs as a result of contact with an irritating substance or an allergy to certain substances)
Hypertrophic scars, keloids (formation of excessive scar tissue after inflammation), and so on
Although rare, acne can grow on the skin around the gut. However, it is also possible for acne to arise due to other causes. And, if the lump appears to get bigger after squeezing, it is likely that the lump has a secondary infection. Or, the cause of the lump has not been resolved properly so that its size continues to increase.
You should check your complaint directly to the doctor. Physical examination is generally enough for doctors to do to detect possible dangerous conditions. If necessary, the doctor may also recommend a biopsy examination.
In the meantime, you should stop the habit of squeezing lumps without knowing the cause first. Take a shower regularly and wear clean clothes so that personal hygiene is maintained. Avoid giving any treatment before checking your complaint to the doctor.
Hope it helps ..
