Neuropathy: Sounds like a nerve problem, so we'd call it neuropathy. It can be caused by anything damaging a nerve. Shingles or herpes can do this, but if it has been going on for 2 weeks I'd expect there to be spots or bumps or something showing on the skin by now. It can also be caused by your immune system attacking the nerve or by the nerve being pinched in your spine or elsewhere. See your doc for help. ...Read more

After 5 days of suspected shingles symptoms without a rash and pain under shoulder blade around to breast area. What else could it be?

After 5 days of suspected shingles symptoms without a rash and pain under shoulder blade around to breast area. What else could it be?

Shingle v. skeletal: Even in the absence of a rash, if you have had shingles in the past, you can still have "herpetic neuralgia, " which is simply nerve pain due to the inflammation of the nerves. Alternatively, this type of pain could occur due to "costochondritis, " which is essentially a pulled muscle between your rib spaces. Could have happened during exercise, sudden twist or even because of wire from a tight bra. ...Read more

Screen autoimmune: There are multiple joints involved which are painful. This complaint may indicate arthritis and/or autoimmune disease. I would recommend screening tests for autoimmune disease and having an evaluation of your renal function. Your doctor will discuss these possibilities with you further. I hope that this helps. ...Read more

Woke up with puffy swollen ear, chin to clavicle rash, and puffy swollen eyelids and under eyes? First time this has ever happened. No pain, only itch

Allergic reaction: You need to see if physician. Because of the swollen ear this may be an early reaction to an infection. It can also be an allergic reaction to medication or perhaps a insect bite. Treatment will probably consist of a steroid cream and even an injection of steroid. In the meantime take an anti-histamine tablet that you can purchase over-the-counter. ...Read more

I am suffering from red rashes on my shoulder. What cream should I apply ?

I am suffering from red rashes on my shoulder. What cream should I apply ?

Depends: One has to know what the diagnosis is. If it's an allergic reaction to clothing(contact dermatitis) a cortisone type cream would help. If it's a fungus infection an antifungal cream is indicated. If it's a bacterial infection(cellulitis) an antibacterial cream like bacitracin is needed. See your physician or dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment if your rash persists. ...Read more

7 yr s of unexpland body pain rashes misscarraiges fatigue lung nodules. Now for 6 mos  strait hip shoulder + chest pain.  And a + ANA lab. Lupus?

Maybe: Lupus is a complex autoimmune disease in which the body is attacking its own tissue. Lupus is famous for affecting different people in different ways. The effects can be so different from person to person that it does not even look like they have the same diagnosis. ANA is only a screening test that tells us more tests are needed. See a rheumatologist! ...Read more
