By: By the date of this post almost a week has passed. I hope you have visited your daughter's pediatrician for this problem, as well as your doctor. It is difficult to say without actually seeing the lesions what the problem is. Common causes of rashes like this are coxsackie virus, herpes virus, varicella virus, etc. Your daughter's pediatrician should be able to make a diagnosis and give you a treatment plan.
I hope all is well. ...Read more

I spilled very hot coffee on my upper thigh and it's very red and now has a few blisters. Should I see a doctor?

Water: Use lots of cool water. Second degree burn will be painful but will heal in 2 weeks. A bioclusive or tegaderm membrane on it will stop the pain and promote healing. Avoid antibiotics on the burn or by mouth. Do not bother with a Dr unless you know one with experience treating burns. Very few Drs do. ...Read more

Upper thigh throbs and is in pain, what should I do?

Upper thigh throbs and is in pain, what should I do?

If pain were in back of thigh likely sciatica caused by radiation of pain from nerves next to lumbar spine or pelvic girdle joints. Since pain goes not to foot is probably not lumbar disk problem. See osteopath for diagnosis. ...Read more
