Calf pain: Does it come on when you walk and stop when you stop. If so then consider intermittent claudication. If smoking stop now. Happy to do 2nd opinion to help.
I have extreme skin pain/sensitivity on my left rib cage, at times extending around to my back x 2 mos. There are no visible lesions or redness.
PHN: Is this the place you had Shingle? If it is Unilateral (only on one side of the back) most likely Post Herpetic Neuralgia. Can be treated with Topical Capsaicin (OTC) by mouth Antiinflammatory like Advil and Aleve (naproxen). Rx strength Lidocaine Patch may help and in worse case you may need Stronger pain medicine.See 1 more doctor answer
Biopsy: You probably need a biopsy to diagnosis this lesion. See a physician.

Several things: Unfortunately with skin conditions, it is always best for us to see and feel the lesions to help make a proper diagnosis. Best to see your doctor for an appropriate evaluation. Could try posting picture of the spots, that may give a little more info to us. But really, best is to see your doctor. Sorry this was not more helpful. Best of luck. Dr R

I have small tattoo on my left rib cage from 2 years ago. It's raised, scarring, bumpy, and red. I have very sensitive skin - should it be removed?
Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you. You should see a doctor for an evaluation. Chronic infections are known to have occurred from tattoos. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.
