Strap sprain: Your pain does sound like it comes from the back due to a disc or nerve, however it could also be from a strain of the strap muscles inside the leg that attach to the pubis (bony part of the pelvis in the front) and is referred to the back. I would definitely have it rechecked by your physician to see if a referral is necessary. ...Read more
Chronic leg pain sciatic n thigh/butt. Had 2 cortisone shots. Pain is gone. Been 3 wks. Dr said I had bursitis. What does this mean if shot helped?
Cortisone works!: Cortico-steroids are life saving drugs that are used to reduce acute inflammation. It can truly be a miracle drug, but unfortunately riddled with side effects and uncomfortable long term signs and symptoms: the fact that it worked may not be diagnostic for bursitis, though very possible. Prolonged use shuts your adrenals from working and weight gain, facial swelling, insomnia & many probs ensue. ...Read more

What will a Dr prescribe for herpes on the face legs and butt cheeks to heal faster or get rid of?
Doubt it's herpes: Your description of such a WIDESPREAD infection which seems to cover BOTH SIDES of the body at the same time is not the usual way that HERPES infections appear. Usually people will have an infection over ONE SIDE of the body only and it is unusual to be on the face AND on a leg at the same time. Do you have pictures you wish to upload for review?

Sometimes, a simple outpatient procedure called an Incision and Drainage is the only way to clear up the problem. However, do not try this at home! ...Read more

Hello,: Hello, I want to start by telling you that I cannot diagnose the cause of your lump. It might be a pilonidal cyst. It is a cyst that usually contains hair and skin debris which is found at the tailbone at the top of the crack on your buttocks. It may be swollen, hard and painful because it could be infected. I would definately see your doctor. Your doctor may refer you to see a general surgeon if this is a pilonidal cyst. Even this isn't the cause, you should get a new mass evaluated. If you see your doctor you can hit two birds with one stone: 1. Get the people who love you off your back and 2.) get this mass diagnosed and treated. God bless. Take good care of yourself. ...Read more

Drink plenty of water, and also stay away from sodas, sweet or diet sodas too. Get some rest, reduce your stress level, and let your body work on it's own healing.
