589 – Having Skin Problems

Mother: Doctor, this is my son Danny. I brought him in so you could look at his rash.

Doctor: Okay, Danny. Have a seat on the exam table. How long have you had the rash?

Mother: My son has had that rash for about two weeks. It started out as a blister, and then it got really itchy and turned red. Could it be an infection?

Doctor: I’ll need to take a closer look at it first before I can tell you that.

Mother: I hope it’s not anything serious. I hope it’s not skin cancer!

Doctor: Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Okay, let’s take a look...

Mother: While you’re at it, could you look at this bump on Danny’s neck? I think it’s a mole.

Doctor: That looks like a birthmark, but I’ll take a look.

Mother: And could you look at this wart? If you remove it, will it leave a scar?

Doctor: I’m not sure it is a wart. Let me examine it first, and I’ll tell you what treatment I recommend.

Mother: Oh, and Doctor, could you look at Danny’s pimples? He just started getting them. I had really bad acne when I was his age.

Doctor: Is there anything else?

Mother: Well, since you asked..
