Possible: The nipple and breast tissue is very sensitive and may experience pain if manipulated during sexual intimacy as there is a heightened sensitivity during this act. So, in short this may be normal. If there is any bloody discharge of redness or pain of the breast or skin changes, it would be a good idea to be physically seen by a medical provider

Diet: Any constipation can be treated in many ways. I typically recommend enacting dietary measures such as increasing dietary fiber and decreasing fat. For example, green leafy vegetables and beans are good sources of fiber that may permit stool to be passed. Increasing water and some light exercise is a treatment with little side effect. Exercise is a default therapy for almost any condition.

Probably not: Any dentist will use a topical numbing agent before injection of another numbing agent. While the recovery pain may be great, the actual procedure should be relatively painless.

Unlikely: Toxic shock syndrome is caused by a bacteria. The symptoms include chills, pain, and fever. It is not impossible, but unlikely that a period of a few hours of leaving a tampon in place will cause toxic shock. If you experience any fever or chills or if you continue to be worried, speak with your primary medical provider.

Yes: Accutane is very effective for cystic acne. It has the potential to adversely effect the growth and development of an unborn child if you become pregnant, so it is very very important that if you are sexually active that two forms of birth control are used.

Urticaria: You may be experiencing temperature induced urticaria. Some people have a similar rash in extremes of temperature. If it does not resolve try a little Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or cetiruzibe over the counter.

Side effect: Low white blood count (leukopenia) is a side effect that has been associated with taking depakote. I would continue to follow the white blood count and have a conversation with the physician prescribing the Depakote if you are worried. This is a not uncommon side effect.
