Shingles: The best way to diagnosis a rash is to actually see the rash and/or feel it, so it is difficult to provide information based on this question. The rash of shingles usually starts as a red itchy (often painful) area, and then develops blisters. Shingles rash usually occurs on only one side of the body, and stops abruptly at the spine when it is on the back.

What can I do for the painful red blisters filled with water all over my lower back from cellulitis?

What can I do for the painful red blisters filled with water all over my lower back from cellulitis?

Depends on cause: If the blisters don't cross the midline, consider shingles (tx: acyclovir). With cellulitis present, if the area of blistering is also very edematous (swollen), then mobilization of fluid from this area (e.g. Diuresis) can also help, along with abx. If the pt looks ill, has a fever, and the blisters are looking more violaceous, then go to the ed- the infection may be getting worse.

Sounds like shingles: If your "rash" on you lower back follows a dermatome-- sounds like you may have "shingles". Which is re activation of chickenpox (varicella zoster virus). Very painful. You should get seen to make sure what this is. If it's shingles, you can get an anti viral which will help aid in healing. Go to an urgent care if you don't have a doc.

Get checked: Your description could be the beginnings of shingles. The pains you describe could be a prodrome (symtoms that occur before blisters occur)- in either case see a physician for a checkup, .

I want to know if I have a cyst or not I have been having lower back pains, gotten a little sick, its been buring around my vagina and itching plus I have a blister on my vagina walls, it hurts when I walk, do stuff and sleep and I've been have a thick di

Hello.: Hello. Can't determine if your lesion is a cyst just by this description alone. I am going to assume (tell me if I am wrong) that you are a sexually active female. Between thick vaginal discharge, vaginal itching and burning, vaginal lesion and back pain - this is suggestive of an infection. You really need a complete sexually transmitted disease work up. Please see your gynecologist for evaluation. Take care.

Topical HC cream: There many potential answers but if you had this for more than a week, you should consult a dermatologist. In the meanwhile try otc Hydrocortisone cream to see if this helps. This is the time of the year people tend to itch more from dry skin. Start applying a skin moisturizer immediately after bathing and see if this reduces the itch.

Would lower back/spine pain be due to shingles as have blister rash on stomach?

Would lower back/spine pain be due to shingles as have blister rash on stomach?

Could be: With a painful rash following a specific nerve distribution pattern, you likely have shingles outbreak. If you have an outbreak, please stay away from anyone who has never had chicken pox, until rash resolves. Go see your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. Your back pain may be related to the rash, or might be unrelated.

Oral sex??: There are several conditions that can cause the symptoms that you described. Although some may be benign, there are others that should be treated. I suggest you see your primary care doctor as soon as these symptoms appear.

Mild dyspnea-increases on exertion, lower back pain, fatigue, difficult to concentrate, cold hands/feet, painless blisters on end of tongue. Help!

Need more info: This constellation of symptoms could be unrelated and appear rather non-specific. A thorough history and physical examination should be performed by your doctor to elicit a diagnosis or multiple diagnoses. He may want to check your thyroid, blood levels and heart function. Go to er if shortness of breath worsens, you develop chest pain, or dizziness.

Sore coccyx every day?

Sore coccyx every day?

Rare but could: Happen, it use to be excision of the coccyex very common operation about 20 years ago, we found out this not the only solution, we have to find out if you have any rectal problem if this was okay, I would suggest the following sites bath daily, be sure the bowel is soft take medication like motrin, use air daunt to set on, if all this did not help, I would suggest to see orthopedic surgeon.

Will a broken coccyx bone ever be healed?

Will a broken coccyx bone ever be healed?

Heal? Prob not: Most r due 2 a fall on ur butt. The fracture displaces the coccyx inward. We all sit have bms which pushes or try's 2 so it is constantly being moved. Not good way to heal a fx. So u end up with a painful nonunion. More inward deformity more painful. They r rx with nsaids, donuts etc results r +/- & many need resection. I = 45 excisions all better fast no returns & all happy. Pik surg, expert.
