Anxiety vs....: Something! It is often hard to understand how feeling stress or anxious could cause skin symptoms such as these, but in a young person your age, that is the most likely cause. HOWEVER, the significant disease causes of this are in the connective tissue disease realm: lupus, scleroderma, dematomyositis, cryoglobulinemia, rheumatoid arthritis. Reduce stress, observe, see doc in 2 weeks if persists ...Read more

Neck pain, sleeping most of the day, no interest in eating/drinking, feel feverish, headaches, red rash not raised, blistered or open skin just skin is red rash, went away but now experiencing symptoms.

Meningitis: is a potentially serious infection which commonly causes neck pain, fever, and headache; rash can be associated. The symptoms you describe warrant immediately evaluation, to ensure that there is nothing serious going on. I recommend immediate medical evaluation, consider going to Urgent Care or emergency room. Good luck! ...Read more

Have small painful and itchy red bumps starting in middle of my spine. Nauseous, chills, night sweats. Bumps starting to go towards right side of back?

Have small painful and itchy red bumps starting in middle of my spine. Nauseous, chills, night sweats. Bumps starting to go towards right side of back?

See dr: Sounds like an unpleasant infection. You are a bit young for shingles, which would give bumps to blisters on one side like you describe. I suggest you visit an urgent care center, your PCP, or if high fever or vomiting, perhaps the ER. Night sweats, chills, and nausea alone indicate an infection such as influenza or even tuberculosis. Please seek help ASAP. ...Read more

Sandpaper rash: see your doctor if you develop a rash with strep throat especially if the person is not on antibiotics. In some people this is a sign that the antibiotics should be used longer or that additional studies should be done. (I included a picture of another strep related finding - tongue that looks like a strawberry.) ...Read more

Shingles rash fading. areas of numbness,,at times painful and pinching feeling and itching on side and stomach where rash is. will these subside?

Yes: If you are in significant distress, a prescription for 5% doxepin cream will stop the pain. You forgot to include the most important thing: when did the shingles first appear? The skin will heal in about a month, faster if treated correctly. The burning neuropathic pain may persist long after the skin heals. ...Read more

Feeling of a rock at bottom of breastbone/dull pain, can be all day + jaw ache & light tingling in lower face maybe on exertion. Heart tests ok Ideas?

If your heart tests: are all OK it is probably related to the GI system or the bones and muscles of your chest. Anxiety can also mimic a number of organic disease processes. Ask your health care provider to refer you to a GI doctor for evaluation and perhaps physical therapy for strengthening. If all else is OK then consider counseling. ...Read more

1 week into having shingles. Rash only 7 spots bottom cheek and starting to fade. Throat now inflamed and neck glands swollen. Is this still shingles?

Pharyngitis: You're describing a pharyngitis which is unrelated to shingles. I wonder "why" at your young age you're under attack from shingles followed by a nasty throat infection. I hope u can get yourself checked to find out "why" this happened to u. There could be something wrong with your immune system or you're under way too much stress. Hope u feel better soon! ...Read more

I had an unprocted sex 3 days later I had rashes on my face n chest , 2 weeks later I'm down with a sorethroat ,can it be a symptom of HIV?

Probably not: HIV takes time to alter your immune system. These would not be apparent in this short amount of time. However I would see a physician to find out what is causing these symptom. In all likelihood its a simple virus not HIV ...Read more

Had unprotected vaginal , did HIV combo, negative at 8 1/2 weeks , started to experience a rash on my chest at nine weeks is there any relation to have symptoms after that amount of time?

Had unprotected vaginal , did HIV combo,  negative at 8 1/2 weeks ,  started to experience a rash on my chest at nine weeks is there any relation to have symptoms after that amount of time?

For sure not HIV: Negative combo test at 8+ weeks proves you do not have HIV. And of course a hundred things other than HIV can cause skin rash. Also, rash is never the only symptom of an HIV infection; there would also be fever and a number of other symptoms. Finally, 9 weeks definitely is too late for onset of HIV symptoms. See a doctor if the rash continues, but for sure you don't have HIV. ...Read more

Child has faint red rash on cheeks and chest, does not itch, only other symptom is congestion which he has has for a month (allergies) should I worry?

Should be seen.: It is difficult to diagnose a rash without seeing it. There are many viruses which cause rashes, but strep can cause a rash as you have described also. I would recommend you call your child's doctor and have he or she take a look, so that your child can be diagnosed properly and receive any necessary treatment. ...Read more

Can there be only 1 symptom after 3 weeks hiv exposure? I have some pimple non patchy like rash on neck and chest

May be: There is no consistency to symptoms of HIV. None of the tests is 100% at three weeks. In about 12 weeks, you should get a test of HIV nucleic acids, if negative, it will essentially rule out HIV infection. ...Read more

My neck and chest feels sore to touch, similar sensation to sunburn (but  it's not). There is no rash, redness or other symptoms. What could this be?

Tenderness,dysthesia: Such tenderness, if it's the skin, without rash or redness, suggests a hypersensitivity of skin disorder. I would look for deficiencies of magnesium,calcium,iron,vitamin b12, and also check thyroid status. Anxiety is a possible cause also. Discuss this with your physician. ...Read more

Depends: Unlike solid tumor, there is differet stage, leukemia is usually disseminated disease at diagnosis. For someone without history of leukemia, rash usually is not caused by leukemia (although occasionally leukemia can present this way).

Two year old has pimple like bumps on chin and looks like a light rash on chest and back. No fever, no symptoms. What could it be?

Rash: Difficult to know without seeing it. 1 possibility is that it may be staph or strep on his chin, called impetigo with a more generalized rash that often accompanies it. If this is the case he requires antibiotics to protect particularly his kidneys. Have the rash examined and get a confirmed diagnosis to help with his care. All the best in getting this sorted out. ...Read more

Scarlet Fever: A sore red throat with or without white patches, fever, enlarged lymph nodes and fine red sandpaper like rash to the face or trunk is suggestive of Scarlet Fever (strep throat with a rash). Many viral infections can present similarly, so appropriate testing would be warranted prior to treating with antibiotics. ...Read more
