I have a burning/stinging sensation on the skin of my upper lip, I have been out in the sun a lot lately, should I be concerned?

Happens: Funny enough, after a significant amount of sun exposure, I developed the same sensation on my right upper lip 2-3 weeks ago. Now I am of Latin-American origin, so my skin tolerates sun better than Caucasian skin, but sun damage, stress, dryness can all contribute to these areas of burning on your lip

Cleanse immediately.: If you have not already cleansed with a gentle cleanser such as cetaphil and rinsed several times with water, please do so now. Next, place some over the counter Cortaid (hydrocortisone) on the site. Lastly, get a great sunscreen that has physical blockers such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. It is important that an inflamed area on the face not get sun exposure to worsen the discoloration!

I've got stinging burning itchy red skin on my joint areas for 2 days now?? I have no allergies and it just started randomly. Any ideas what's wrong?

I've got stinging burning itchy red skin on my joint areas for 2 days now?? I have no allergies and it just started randomly. Any ideas what's wrong?

Which joint areas: Are you referring to? And are the burning itchy red skin areas associated with prolonged sunlight exposure? Or have they been through friction or some rubbing action recently? Any medications or new substances that you may have ingested within the last 2-3 days? These are clues to help figure out the problem. Otherwise you would need direct hands-on examination for diagnosis.

Nerve: Sounds like the first branch of the fifth cranial nerve which exits your skull just in front of your ear. Go see your doc and if he can't help see a good neurologist. Good luck!

Should I be worried if I have burning and stinging pains in my head after chiari surgery?

Talk to your surgeon: You may have a pinched nerve or a healing nerve ending causing the pain, but your surgeon should be aware of any unusual symptoms after a procedure.

I am experiencing pain with urination (quality: stinging or burning sensation) and skin rash (quality: itchiness).

I am experiencing pain with urination (quality: stinging or burning sensation) and skin rash (quality: itchiness).

Few things here: For the urinary symptoms you will need to see your doctor for testing the urine to see if you have an infection. Remember to drink your water. For the rah you need to give a good description of the rash like how does it look, does it spread, when did it come. So ask doctor to look at it when you go fir your urine

Many possibilities: Without being able to see this and examine the lesion it is very difficult if not impossible to diagnose. Suggest you show this to your family doctor or to a dermatologist and have it diagnosed appropriately. Good luck.

Headache &neuropathy: Can have similar symptoms and often are comorbid diseases. Neurologists or pain management specialists can help to identify and manage these conditions. At this point, you need to be evaluated, imaged and diagnosed. Then the treatment could be applied. Good luck.

Burning head of penis but all STD testing came back neg, had blood at top where foreskin attacth to head and stinging mostly if sweating, went to doc and determined it'd not a STD so what could it be if it's not a std?

Burning head of penis but all STD testing came back neg, had blood at top where foreskin attacth to head and stinging mostly if sweating, went to doc and determined it'd not a STD so what could it be if it's not a std?

Inflammation...: Can cause stinging and bleeding. This could be from mechanical irritation of that region on clothing. Certain bacterial and fungal infections can cause burning and itching, and do not show up on standard std or UTI tests. There are inflammatory conditions of the skin, or types of dermatitis, such as lichen sclerosis that are problematic. I recommend seeing a dermatologist or urologist.

Diagnosis: This may be a neuroma, might be shingles, or several other possibilities. Would need to see it in order to diagnose. Suggest that if you are not confident in the doctor's diagnosis that you get a second opinion.
