Is it eczema?: Check with a doctor to make sure its really eczema. The distribution you are describing is atypical for adult eczema. Eczema in adults usually is primarily on the flexor surfaces (under the neck, behind the ears, behind the knees and elbows, wrists, groin...). A doctor can help you diagnose the rash you're having and treat it.

See MD: See your doctor to confirm if this is eczema or another skin disorder like psoriasis. Either way, you physician can treat and or refer to a dermatologist.

A 25-year-old member asked:
After having low back surgery, is it normal to have unresolved nerve pain in feet and legs?

Yes: I assume you are talking of disc surgery, which the nerve involved.
We have to consider two things.
How chronic the painwas?
How much the nerve injury is?
It may take days?
It may have residual pain for long time?

A 38-year-old member asked:
I just had a sonogram at 6 weeks 2 days pregnant and the tech said I had a corpus luteum cyst on my ovary. What is this? Is it normal? Especially, if I have had a miscarriage (due to a partial molar pregnancy) and one healthy baby.?

Normal: The corpus luteum is the cyst in the ovary where ovulation occurred. It is an important source of hormonal support to the early pregnancy. This is a normal, healthy finding.

Pain in legs & hips head aches and indigestion lack of energy all started since I quit drinking are these normal symtoms?

Temporarily: (obviously more information needed) how long ago did you quit drinking, and how much were you drinking? Overall stopping drinking is good for your health, but there are acute withdrawal symptoms, as your body adjusts. Think back how you felt any given morning after a drunk night. Not so good probably, symptoms would be relieved by alcohol's putting you back in semi-stupor. Break that cycle!

I had back surgery 2 years ago and have pain in right leg only. Could this be sciatic nerve damage?

Could be..: If you have had previous surgery, follow up imaging and neurosurgical consultation are important steps to pursuing an accurate diagnosis.
