Rectal : Rectal hernias are very rare. They are often confused with hemorrhoids. Rectal prolapse is a possibility (rectum protruding through the anus). Regardless. You need to see your doctor right away for an evaluation. If you still have the pain and pressure and you are unable to see your doctor present to your local urgent care or er. ...Read more

I have a spot on my spine that is very sore and along my right side from my back to my stomach my skin is painful to touch on the surface. No rashes or signs of other symptom. A little dizzy.

Checkup: Not sure what the spot is due to. The peripheral nerves run in a linear pattern along the back. The area you are describing corresponds to the Thoraic or mid back vertebra. The dizzy part is most concerning. Could be getting shingles, herniated disc. vestibular involvement due to a URI. See a Doctor for checkup. ...Read more

Skin issues: Not sure what is causing that but suggest potential exposure to certain environmental allergens if that comes in cycles at the same time each year. Nerve irritation is another explanation but what would cause it - remains unclear based on your presentation. ...Read more

What do you suggest if i'm uncircumsiced and wen i pull my skin back it's painful can you have sex without it pulled back?

Yes: Often partners will try to pull back your foreskin because they don't understand and/or are only familiar with circumcised men. You need to be assertive and let them know that's uncomfortable. Uncircumcised men have the advantage of not requiring lubrication if they keep it inside the foreskin. ...Read more

getting pimple on my labia or around labia regularly, showed to doc she said its normal but I am worried wat is the reason is it bout my skin ?painful

Pimple: Pimples are normal on the labia as well. As long as it's not bleeding, growing in size, or changin in color. If it doesn't go away in a couple of weeks and is growing in size, I suggest you get a biopsy of this or viewed again by your ob/gyn. ...Read more

I have a hard lump under my skin in inner thigh, it's painful it appears and disappears. I have not noticed what triggers it to appear or vise versa.

Cyst or lymph node: It is possible to be a simple sebaceous cyst under the skin or, depending on location , a lymph node. It looks like it is not associated with any other skin lesions at all or rashes . I think it would be best to see your physician for this when it actually happens, for a better evaluation. ...Read more

Pubic lice could be another possibility as well and this can be transmitted via sexual contact. A medical evaluation is warranted and treatment will be based on the finding. ...Read more

A dermatologist...: ...Will be happy to snip them off for you. (well, maybe not happy, but he or she will do it.) the fact that yours are symptomatic often means that your insurance will cover the procedure - although that is not always true. But if they are itchy and painful, you really should have them removed, either way. ...Read more
