Nodule that appeared on lip in third trimester
Nodule that appeared on lip in third trimesterAt her regular OB appointment, a 31-year-old woman pregnant with her first child expressed concern about a nodule that had appeared on her lip in the past two weeks. Currently in her third trimester, she had only been taking prenatal vitamins since the beginning of her pregnancy. The red, friable papule had a well-defined rim of skin at the base and would bleed spontaneously if accidentally brushed against.
Multiple skin lesions on his cheeks
Multiple skin lesions on his cheeksA 7-year-old boy went with his mother to the dermatologist for evaluation of multiple skin lesions on his cheeks, nose and upper lip. They had developed over the last six months and hadn’t been bothering him, except that he didn’t like the way they looked. His mother had encouraged the visit because she had similar firm, smooth papules in the same facial area when she was an adolescent and had them treated.
Multiple painful skin lesions
