The Doctors are addressing some medical conditions that might have you asking, "What is this? What happened? And, could this happen to me?"
Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra discusses Eczema Herpeticum, which is a condition that happens to people with pre-existing eczema but is caused by the herpes virus. She explains that when someone with eczema comes in contact with herpes it can cause itchy and painful bumps on various parts of their body. She says this condition can be quite serious and requires urgent care.
She also discusses a patient, who developed large tumors on her tongue. The Doctors explain in this case the tumors were not cancerous and are called Hamartomas. Dr. Batra explains this condition is most often a genetic issue and occurs usually in families who are genetically predisposed to it. She says, in this case, the bumps on the tongue were harmless and unless you have the genes for this condition it is unlikely to occur.
Lastly, Dr. Batra discusses purpura, a common condition that can occur for people who have clotting issues or a history of heart attack or stroke and appears as a red or purple blotch under the skin. She says this can occur when older people bump or knock into things. She says this is concerning if it occurs out of the blue in people who are not taking a blood thinning medication.
