Hive & rash: you have urticaria or allergic dermatitis, it is best if you see your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment, at the mean time try an antihistamine such as Zyrtec or Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) hydrocortisone cream, but you need to find out what you are allergic to.

Why do my veins burn in my right arm?

Right arm kind of achs/numb ,heart burn?

No: Heart burn will not cause right (or left) arm numbness. This is a nerve (as in neurology) symptom. If it goes away with change in position, then it's a trivial symptom you can ignore.

Cervical nerve root: More likely a pinched nerve in the neck. (Cervical radiculopathy). Viral infection can do this too (shingles) Do you have a skin rash? Did you injure your neck? There is an easy way to check for blood flow issues (does your radial pulse go away when you lift your arm up? If when you tilt your head toward your shoulder do you get pain or electrical like sensation on the same side ? (pinched nerve) ...Read more

What should I do when herpes in my arm burns?

What should I do when herpes in my arm burns?

Ice for the pain: If the herpes infection is gone and this is just the residual pain and burning after shingles, then applying an ice pack tends to give some relief. Sarna lotion may also help, and topical Lidocaine can be soothing as well. There are also stronger prescription medications that can help too.

Nurse had hard time on my iv.Hurt like hell.When she took out the catheter it looked split in half.Arm burns ever since.could a piece be in my arm?

It is possible but: not very likely. Once the swelling and inflammation resolves you will be able to feel it if a piece is still imbedded. The plastic is pretty inert so it is unlikely to cause any trouble. Infection would be the main thing to watch for. Pus, swelling, redness and continued pain would be signs of this. ...Read more
