    I am a senior gal and I was having problems with some itchy tiny bumps that were bothering my eye lids. I would rub my eye lids until they would get swollen.
    So I went to see a specialist doctor to get the growths removed. They are not cancerous.
    I then decided that I wanted for the doctor to remove all the brown bumps that were marking my face as I have gotten older.

    Now I have red marks all over my face. The doc says it will take two weeks for the skin to heal. The tiny skin marks have to scab and then fall off. I have never had this type of procedure done on my face.
    I get the feeling I will heal a lot faster before the two weeks are up.

    I am supposed to see the doctor again for a check up on the day before Thanksgiving. I already made plans to be in Vegas on Nov. 25-28th. I am thinking of not canceling VEGAS. I think my skin will be healed by then and the doctor will just say that I am okay. So I have decided to not cancel VEGAS.

    Has anyone had this type of skin surgery where simple bumps are removed
    just to look better? LucyR.

    If it was removed via laser then it will heal very quickly.

    If it was a traditional scalpel, then it will take some time.

    I had a bump on my balls once and I though it was an STD. Doctor said it wasn't (i forget what he called it) and froze it off with some liquid nitrogen. It hurt but I'm all better now.

    Ihave news for all of you.....

    I believe it really happened to DFALK....because I had the same problem a few years ago. I showed the small growth to my family doctor and it was located on my female private part. He said it was nothing to worry about.

    Two years later I needed hernia surgery so I had the surgeon remove the small
    bump. It was not cancerous and it didn't hurt because it was cut out during my hernia surgery. I never had a problem again.

    I am the type of person that worries about small growth because they look so innocent and could later become larger or cancerous.

    My grandson had a small growth on his neck. The doctor said not to worry about it.
    But then it started to grow months later and he needed surgery to have it taken out
    by a surgeon. It should have been taken out as soon as the doctor saw it while it
    was tiny.

    DFALK does like to joke around and it could be a joke or not. But, I believe him.

    Glad yours was nothing serious either.

    I do like to joke, but that was a true story. It was back when I was 21, in college, and a giant whore so I was a little freaked out at the time.

    We are all adults here so we can laugh at stuff

    Hey DFALK, When I was young and dating a guy and then we broke up I noticed
    some tiny bumps on my inner thighs. I went to the internet web and I looked
    at one some photos of warts. So I thought I had warts. When the doctor looked at
    them she said it was just a rash and gave me some ointment to put on them.
    WHEW! I have never had warts but I have heard of people getting them on their
    private parts and is considered a social disease.
    I am one of those people that worries about catching stuff.

    My face is full of red marks from the surgery. I look like I have chicken pox. I hope
    the red color leaves my face soon. I worry that the airline will think I have some
    type of disease and will not allow me on the airplane.
    My alternative will be to hide the red marks by putting on lots of make-up on my face to hide the marks. Nervous Nelly!

    This is rapidly becoming my favorite thread.

    Those chafing rashes can be a brute! Along with the bowleggedness of course.

    Social disease? Wow. What year is it, again?

    Yes, HPV cause genital warts. That virus also causes cervical cancer. And there's a vaccine for young people (male or female):peace:

    In the useful department, I had a couple of things zapped on my face with liquid nitrogen - took about a week for them to look okay. They were pretty red.

    I'm sure you will be okay Nellie.

    Wow, liquid nitrogen on your coconuts?

    Sounds like that would be as much fun as sticking 'em in a wood chipper. You are one tough SOB.

    Did the doctor test for shingles?

    If it looks like chicken pox, is itchy, and seems to appear out of nowhere, that's what I'd guess. Although shingles are very painful on the face, so I'm not sure.

    My grandma had shingles on her right eye and face, if we had known it was shingles we would have gotten that anti-viral drug that cures it immediately.
