I have this flare up on my skin affecting the right side of right buttock it is like little raised bumps that look like mosquito bites it itches bad I have tried anti iitch creams nothing is working?

A few possibilities: If you have been exposed to new substances, this could be plain old contact dermatitis; try to find what might be irritating your skin. Shingles would be a bad case scenario to maybe get checked out. The worst case scenario would be a recurrent rash like that which could represent herpes on your rear end that keep coming on over and over: Valtrex (valacyclovir) would be the treatment for that or the shingles. ...Read more

Worms: Because of the anal itching, I presume that you're experiencing pinworms. These usually clear easily in adults simply from good hygiene after bowel movements so that you don't keep reinfecting your self by ingesting worm eggs. To relieve anal itching, apply a cortisone type cream to the anus without letting your fingers touch the anus. See your MD if nausea and fatigue continue. ?pregnancy possibl ...Read more

Rear ended 8 days ago, hurt my back today (history of back probs) could it be from being hit didn't damage car.

Rear ended 8 days ago, hurt my back today (history of back probs) could it be from being hit didn't damage car.

Unlikely: Pain 8 days after an accident is not likely to be related. Typical muscle symptoms may take a day or two to worsen (think muscle sore after a workout). With a history of some back problems and spontaneous onset today, suspect it is your usual problem revisited. For episodic back pain, nsaids/tylenol, ice/heat, salonpas hot patches helpful. Pilates/yoga/piyo great preventative exercises. ...Read more

Maybe you have a rash you cannot see? ...Read more
