The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 18-year-old female asked:
Viral Infection: Your symptoms indicate you may have a viral infection. Viruses are frequently implicated in the symptoms you're describing. Viral gastritis means a virus affecting your stomach, also known as a "stomach flu". If over-the-counter relief isn't achieved in 3 days, it is important to present to a primary care physician (or urgent care physician) for further evaluation!
A 28-year-old female asked:
Watch for symptoms!: Herpes simplex virus (HSV) is an extremely contagious infection that does not require sexual contact to be passed from one person to another. If you notice any symptoms of herpes including tingling and burning followed by development of vesicular then ulcerative lesion, please see a doctor!
A 33-year-old male asked:
See a dermatologist: It is difficult to answer this question without performing a physical exam to determine the extent of the burn. You should see your primary care doctor or dermatologist to evaluate the burn and determine the most appropriate treatment. Otherwise, find your local urgent care center to have a physician evaluate the burn. Topical silver sulfadiazine would be a more appropriate treatment for burns.

This was very helpful. Thanks! Thanks I did ask, all they said was that it's because the BP was lower before. It was a nuclear stress test so they did the imagining.
