3 days ago i noticed tiny blisters and redness in 1 area of my buttocks. The redness and swelling has expanded across my hip and into the groin area. What is this?

3 days ago i noticed tiny blisters and redness in 1 area of my buttocks. The redness and swelling has expanded across my hip and into the groin area. What is this?

This : This sounds like a possible cellulitis (skin infection). You will need to be examined by a doctor and get treated. Antibiotics will clear this up if it is in fact bacterial in nature, other possibilities are herpetic lesions, allergic reaction, or even bug bites. If the issue has not resolved please seek medical attention. Best of luck and happy new year. ...Read more

I have chikungunya and a swelling nude in the left buttock is that common?

I have chikungunya and a swelling nude in the left buttock is that common?

Not chikungunya: This is totally unrelated to chikungunya and is a separate problem. It's a bit hard to tell from the pic but it could be a 'Staph boil' or possibly an STD if you've been having unsafe sex. Sometimes the condom doesn't cover the 'whole area' so what's not covered could, in theory, get infected. Best to get a doc to see it and CULTURE that so you know exactly what it is, and therefore the best Rx. ...Read more

Buttock pain so bad, left hip and knee pain severe with swelling i can't take much more! feel like i'm coming to the end of being able to handle it?

More than 1 problem: Sorry about your pain. Sounds like there are at least 2 problems superimposing on each other. The buttock and hip pain could be from sciatica or a pinched nerve in your back. Severe knee swelling is not seen with these and likely due to an isolated problem that needs to be investigated and treated. You need an exam by a doctor, mri, +/- injections to get you out of pain. ...Read more
