Cold, ear infection, alternative dry cough and wet cough for a month. Chest Xray showed clear lungs, chronic appearing lung scarring but no Pnuemonia. Smoker. Urgent care doctor suggested to see Pulmonary specialist. What does this mean? Is scar a problem?

Nothing specific: The x-ray is really just a good screening tool and sometimes picks up old issues with little if any importance but if never seen before lead to more testing to make sure no treatment is needed. Smokers can have "dirty lungs" as can asthmatics. The term "scar" is a gestimate. It might be an old calcified lymph node or something worrisome.Urgent care is not the venue to pursue a head scratcher. ...Read more

One day last year it was cold and I was out with a wet shirt and my left nipple hurted. Now it kinda hurts when ipress on it but nothing looks bad.?

Gynecomastia: It's very unlikely that your now painful nipple is related to what happened a year ago. Instead, it may represent early or mild gynecomastia or male breast development which is often due to excess estrogen from belly fat. Go see your family doc to be sure it's nothing worse, like an infection, to confirm your diagnosis, and to discuss treatment options. ...Read more

Itchy patch: Dryness certainly can cause itchiness. If moisturizing lotion doesn't afford any relief, try a mild cortisone type cream sparingly. Perhaps a soft gauze will protect the nipple skin from being affected by your bra. Discuss this symptom with your physician if symptoms persist. ...Read more

My armpits feel sore. Skin clear. Also left breast throbbing for several months. Nipple feels cold & wet sometimes, but when checked, nothing?

My armpits feel sore. Skin clear. Also left breast throbbing for several months. Nipple feels cold & wet sometimes, but when checked, nothing?

Can check the...: A primary care doctor can check the whole area of the chest, back, and breasts, to see if there is a problem in that area that is "referring" soreness to the armpits. Sometimes pain sensations in a problem area travel to other nerves, and make a person "feel" the pain in another part of the body. This may be the case, if the armpits "feel" soreness but are normal on exam. ...Read more

In cold air try to keep a scarf handy to cover your nose and mouth to warm the air before breathing it in. If your symptoms don't go away fairly quickly seek out help from your healthcare provider. ...Read more

Possibilities...: You may have bronchitis as a complication of your recent cold. Acute bronchitis is an infection of the airways and, if there is no significant fever, it is likely of viral origin so antibiotics will be ineffective. Another possibility is you may have developed bronchospasm from inflammation in the airways caused by coughing. See your doctor so the correct diagnosis can be made and treatment given. ...Read more

It: It is possible that it is the same infection as your daughter, that has affected your lungs. That would commonly be called a "chest cold", so the answer on that is it could certainly be. Since you are having pain and cough, please make an appointment with your doctor.

I'm having a dry cough, and runny nose and it feels like my chest is congested. Is this a common cold? Will OTC medicine work?

Common Cold: If your dry cough persists for a while (4-6 weeks) this could be secondary to inflammation in your upper airway or lungs subsequent to the common cold viruses or post nasal drip syndrome, in both these cases a short course of inhaled broncho dilators like albuterol might be useful (this is not OTC). Try steam inhalation, it provides symptomatic relief. ...Read more
