My husband just said he has a burning sensation on his forehead? What could this be?

More info needed: We can't be sure without more information and an examination, but if the burning is on one side of the forehead only, it could be related to the onset of shingles (herpes zoster) before the rash is apparent. Shingles in that area could affect the eye, so see a doctor right away. ...Read more

My wide has had stomach ache, diarrhea, soft stools, and a burning sensation on her forehead on and off for two weeks.  what could this be?

See a Dr. GI or PCP: These are nonspecific no diagnostic symptoms. If there is a change in bowel movement to diarrhea maybe an acute gastroenterologist is by virus, toxins from bacteria, toxin from antibiotic use (c. Difficile toxin). Burning on forehead maybe because of fever orvasodilator on.2 weeks is too long to wait for acute diarrhea to disappear. Needs workup with stool tests, lab tests, keep good hydration. ...Read more

Got to ER or Urgent: Care and get an x-ray done asap. Head trauma can lead to all sorts of problems that can cause issues later on that you may not be aware of. You could easily have a fracture or other trauma and should be seen by a doctor for evaluation. Often symptoms may not appear for another 24-72 hours that are important to evaluate at the onset. So don't delay. Also, have your neck and back evaluated too. ...Read more

After havin pain in forehead, behind eyes& heaviness &burning sensation in head for 2weeks, CT shows acute sinusitis. I took zinoximor but still pain?

May take time: It may take some time for the sinusitis to clear. Thus you may have the pain for awhile. Sometimes, if the antibiotics are not sufficient, it may be necessary to see an ENT specialist who may be able to drain out some of the mucus via endoscopy. This may help to decrease the sinusitis and make the antibiotics more effect. ...Read more
