I have an itchy feeling within the left side of my chest and pain but II don't exactly know where the pain, is occurring what should II do?

See your doctor: The symptoms you are describing could be a number of things but chest pain is one that needs further attention and evaluation by a doctor. An 'itchy feeling' with pain on only one side of the chest could be the initial symptoms of shingles(herpes zoster), and a red vesicular(pimple like)rash may or may not follow shortly. It is however impossible to be certain without going to see your doctor. ...Read more

Don't do both at the same time, otherwise you won't know what caused the itch :-). ...Read more

Hi i have this small itchy bumps with white top on my left cheeks scattering all over my face 2 days now.

Hi i have this small itchy bumps with white top on my left cheeks scattering all over my face 2 days now.

More details: Since only the left cheek is affected (or is the whole face involved?), I suspect that this may be from a sensitivity to sunlight. Have you recently introduced a new facial cosmetic which may lead to a photosensitive skin reaction after sun exposure? If both cheeks are involved, one needs to consider rosacea. You may well need to consult a dermatologist. ...Read more
