I've been having a burning sensation from what feels like the inside of my head. I've also been having tingling sensations that are dull. Thoughts?

Need an examination: A symptom of "burning sensations inside my head " and tingling sensations is less likely to be due to a serious disease and more likely due to stress or anxiety. BUT it's not possible to diagnose these symptoms without knowing your medical history and without the ability to ask you specific questions and examining you.

I knocked my fore head about 4 weeks ago and had a small bump. Today I felt a tingling burning sensation and the long bump dropped to become a lump?

Hematoma: The lump and bump is a blood clot under the skin. This slowly resolves as it breaks up gradually. Black and blue skin color usually follows. The tingling sensation is an irritation of a superficial nerve in the skin and is not within the brain. As long as you're not experiencing ongoing headaches, dizziness, visual difficulties or vomiting, you don't require a physicians examination at this time. ...Read more

On and off tingling/burning/redness on lips, the sensation fluctuates from lips and chin. Hoping it is anxiety. Longest is 2 hours. No blistering?

On and off tingling/burning/redness on lips, the sensation fluctuates from lips and chin. Hoping it is anxiety. Longest is 2 hours. No blistering?

So, there's something: Anxiety is not the cause of. I was beginning to think one could blame the '08 financial crisis on it and Climate Change too! Actually, anxiety may have a role, but not in the way that means you should ignore it. It's possibly a type of hives and in the mouth area, you probably need to watch it for spreading or getting worse - if it even begins to, get to an ER. Take a benadryl (diphenhydramine) and pay attention. ...Read more

Penis head is burning/tingling for past 72 hours. If herpes how long before sore appears? 13 days since unprotected blowjob.

Not herpes: If this were herpes, blisters and then open sores would appear within 3-5 days, and would always occur before burning or tingling, not afterward. At 13 days, you can be sure herpes isn't the cause. I doubt this is any STD at all. See a doctor if symptoms continue and/or you remain concerned. Good luck! ...Read more
