How can you tell the difference between types of pink eye?

You can't, we might

Eyes
This can be very tricky. From our side, you may have other symptoms or findings on exam that give us clues-lymph nodes, etc. From your side, were there exposures to allergens or other people with pink eye? But they can look very similar. Best to assume it is contagious.

How can you tell the difference between fat and loose skin?

Pinch test

Skin
We all need some subcutaneous fat or we would look really gross. If you want to know if you have excess fat amenable to liposuction, grab the area of concern and lightly pinch it between thumb and forefinger. If there is less than an inch between the two, then it is mostly skin and lipo is unlikely to work. Also if skin is hanging over, lipo alone is unlikely to work.

How can you tell the difference between razor burn and herpes?

Razor Burn & Herpes

Sunburn
Razor burns are initially caused by the act of hair being pushed back into the follicle during the process of shaving. As a result, the follicles become inflamed and the skin turns red - may develop an ingrown hair and/or larger bumps. Herpes, however, forms small painful blisters. They usually appear as small fluid-filled painful blisters on the skin and mucous membrane of the body.

How can you tell the difference between joint and muscle pain?

Location

Simple joint and muscle pain location are restricted to their own structures. And tenderness is as well. Push on a joint and joint pain will hurt. Complex pains are more difficult because a painful joint can cause tightness and pain in the adjacent muscles, and stiff painful muscles can lead to joint pain. In that case, both will be painful and sore, with the primary source usually more painful,
