Instant appointment Lumps on tum
With Doctor Arabella Onslow
Will diabetes go?
QI’m pregnant and have been diagnosed with diabetes. They say it’ll get better after pregnancy. But what if
I get pregnant again?
AThere’s an increased risk of developing gestational diabetes in further pregnancies or developing diabetes in later life. A good diet reduces this risk. Monitoring can help control diabetes if you get it.
QI have tiny red lumps on my tummy. Should I get them removed? Becky, Enfield
AThese are called cherry angiomas and are common skin growths that can develop on most parts of the body. They’re entirely benign and usually range in size from a pinpoint to about ¼in diameter.
Removal causes scarring and, as the lesions don’t tend to grow, treatment isn’t recommended or necessary.
Dandruff in ears!
QMy ears are always itchy and sometimes there’s stuff on my pillow. It looks like dandruff, but is that even possible?! Sprays do help, but then it comes back. What can I do? Caroline, Waltham Cross
ARecurrent outer ear infections can be a sign of developing diabetes, so have a check. If you are diabetic and start treatment, your ears should improve.
