Burning sensation on skin of upper arm/shoulder for 2 weeks, but nothing there, skin looks completely normal. No rashes or other symptoms. What is it?

Neuropathy: Sounds like a nerve problem, so we'd call it neuropathy. It can be caused by anything damaging a nerve. Shingles or herpes can do this, but if it has been going on for 2 weeks I'd expect there to be spots or bumps or something showing on the skin by now. It can also be caused by your immune system attacking the nerve or by the nerve being pinched in your spine or elsewhere. See your doc for help. ...Read more

I have a rash on my buttock that looks like a burn. Hurts when I touch it. Have tried several things. Nothing is working. What might it be?

Burning rash: Painful rashes with small blisters on one side of the buttock, trunk or face should always be considered for shingles and treated within 72 hours to reduce risk of permanent nerve damage. Fungal rashes of the skin are best treated with otc terbinafine, and covering with zinc oxide ointment like desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) to protect. If the steroid/antifungal cream isn't working, best to see a dermatologist. ...Read more
