Rash Around Right Hip
I have rashes/blister on the majority side of my right hip. It possibly could have been from Epsom salt. Does not itch just burns.
I have discovered a bruise on my right hip (~2" long), don't know how it got there. Now it's turned into an itchy rash. Please help.
Get checked: Though one can bruise yourself from scratching, normally the itch comes first. Rarely but possible I have seen severe hives resolve leaving a bruise, thought due to an autoimmune phenomenom. Perhaps it's not quite a bruise. Early shingles? UP? DH? Recommend be examined and get it checked out. ...Read more
Rash developed on my right hip. Started as 3 red bumps that have turned a bit purple. Clear liquid when popped. Surrounded by a few red rash marks. ?
I have headache, body ache, hot flashes, chills, pain radiating from my right hip and a rash on my right buttock. I was thinking maybe shingles?
Low positive ana, dual pattern speckled, centromere. Positive aca and positive histone ab igg. After c/o skin rash and moderate right hip pain.
Need to be evaluated: A low titer (concentration) ANA test is not particularly helpful to make a diagnosis. Even with a particular pattern (speckled) and anti-centromere antibodies and anti-histone antibodies. Your rash and hip pain are more important as well as inflammatory markers like an ESR and a CBC if they are normal or not. See your doctor and ask for a referral to a rheumatologist if you are concerned. ...Read more

Painful lump on hip: This could be part of your normal anatomy from one of the "bumps" on your femur, the large leg bone that form part of your hip.

A few options: Strengthening the muscles around the hip will help a lot. You may want to consider some supplements like glucosamine, however recent research hasn't shown a lot of benefit. Other options include steroid injections, but these don't heal much. You can consider Synvisc (hylan g-f 20) or other joint fluid replacement injections and possible even platelet therapy injections or stem cell procedures. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Steroids can have many side effects, although less likely when injected vs. oral meds. Long term use can suppress the immune system, cause osteoporosis, affect the adrenal system, impair wound healing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
