Cluster of 4 small blisters on wrist, no pain or itching, nothing ever around genitals, could it be genital herpes?
Very unlikely: Neither HSV2 (the usual cause of genital herpes) nor HSV1 (almost all oral herpes) is likely to involve the wrist. Herpes zoster (shingles) is the only herpes infection that would do this. See your doctor if more lesions appear or if it becomes painful, or if you otherwise remain concerned. ...Read more
Sudden Recurrent wound by upper lip. Itches, tingles, swells. Forms blister, crusts over, bleeds. Blood work & swab neg for hsv. What else could it be?
Still maybe herpes: This still sounds like herpes despite the negative test results. Up to 30% of people with HSV1 have negative blood tests for it, so that result doesn't mean much. Try another swab test when you have a fresh blister (within 2 days of onset), and make sure they do a PCR test, not culture. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Mri-large disc bulge L5 s1. Pain (hip/lower leg) some numbness to lower leg/foot & toes. Suffering 10 weeks. Will it heal on its own or need surgery?
Enough time passed: 8 to 12 weeks is an adequate time to allow non-surgical treatments, as you already received, to work. After that, it is unlikely that you will improve without surgery. Other important factors are your neurological exam, the size of the disc herniation, your pain level. At some point, the risk/benefit ratio tilts in favor of surgical treatment for immediate pain relief. See your spine specialist. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Can't figure out these symptoms Non-exertional chest pain, cold hands, unilateral swollen interphalangeal thumb joint w/o trauma, dyspnea on awakening?
Think rheumatic dz: Definitely confusing! Nontraumatic IP joint swelling, especially in the thumb, brings to mind rheumatoid arthritis (RA). A common complication of RA is costochondritis which affects the rib joints (chest pain) & a variant called Caplan's Syndrome leads to lung nodules. Other autoimmune diseases may mimic RA (lupus?) but testing by a Rheumatologist may sort things out for u. Good Luck! Thanx 4 ur Q ...Read more

If you're talking about more chronic or persistent, ongoing pain, and not associated with herpes outbreaks, then almost certainly it's an entirely separate problem. ...Read more
