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.

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
