Conditions with symptom: 'raised spots'
i have about 8-10 small black spots raised on outer lips of my vagina. the fisrt one i got was quite raised and sore ,i seem to be getting more and more _ they are on both sides around my vigina on the outer lips. I've always been told I have a sexy p***y and its been looked at and treated well but now I'm so embarrassed and worried. Im so embarrased by what it looks like i dont want anyone looking there - where once i really enjoyed that. I don't even know what to say when I call the doctors office so I don't want to...it's really embarrassing.
When people talk about scars from spots, does that include red marks left from where you've had spots? Because the only scars I hear about are potholes. Because I'm 18 and I've suffered badly with spots since I was 15 on my face and upper back/shoulders and now I have loads of red marks everywhere but no potholes. So are these red marks scars or will these eventually clear? Also on my back/shoulders I have raised lumps which seem like scar tissue and I think these are from spots, will these clear up?
I have 3 small purple raised spots on my labia, there not painful or itchy, what could it be?
I had a large (12mm diameter) sore on my arm. It has now become 3 separate (one raised) darker spots. Should I get it checked?
Hi there. In the past couple of days I've been sleeping with my new girlfriend, spots have started to appear on the shaft of my penis and 2 on the pubic region. They aren't normall looking spots, they look like large black heads and are only raised at the edges not the black coloured centre. Slightly soar. Im normally pretty good on my sexual health information but this however is worrying me.
i also have this for the past few months now i would also like to know what it is its rather worrying!

I have eczema on my breats, especially my right one, and mostly from what you've described here it does sound like it. However, I recommend you see your GP or a sexual health clinic and get it checked out - I definitely would if it itches too much. Also, just in the meantime, try not using perfumed washes, and try baby shampoo and a shower gel called 'Double Base' in the shower/bath instead - it really helps. :)
hi, i have two raised moles; one on the left side of my stomach, and the other on my right armpit. they are raised by about 3-4mm. i've had them since birth, and they haven't changed in shape or colour. should i go to the doctors and get them checked out anyway?
