Vert red sunburnt skin very warm to touch and I have had brief chills.... Can I just treat at home with slow and ibuprofen? What do chills mean?

Ice & nsai: As long as you do not have blistering it is a superfuical sunburn if you have been out in the sun. You have chills because your internal body temperature is catching up with the outside. Ice to the area and a non-steroidal antiinflamatory like ibuprofen will help. ...Read more

What could cause an occasional hot sensation with redness & warm to touch on back of head and neck that lasts minutes hours or days?

Most hot and cold: sensations involve misfiring or some sort of dysfunction of the sensory nerves of the skin. The sensations of redness and warmth to the touch suggest dilation of blood vessels...it almost sounds like a type of "hot flash." How old are you? Sometimes menopausal hot flashes are perceived in a localized part of the body vs generalized over the entire body. Review with your doctor to decide on tests ...Read more

Fracture of (R) radial head (c) 8 wks. Above elbow still red, inflamed, sore, warm to touch stiff joint.  Normal recovery or cause for concern?

Hard to know: The orthopedist/physician that has seen you previously and that has performed physical examination will know better; but infection of the joint or misalignment would need to be considered. Perhaps more likely that this is normal progression of healing (depending on severity of findings you mention). Have it checked out to be sure. ...Read more

With a metatarsal stress fracture, is it normal to have redness and swelling after 9 week (boot, crutches), and for the area to feel warm to touch?

With a metatarsal stress fracture, is it normal to have redness and swelling after 9 week (boot, crutches), and for the area to feel warm to touch?

Don't be so stressed: Interesting that you mentioned nothing about pain. Some swelling may be acceptable at this point, but the redness and associated warmth may need to be looked into. Suggest you have the foot evaluated soon to quantify objectively, the degree of heat and redness. Sometimes stress fractures can seem more healed than they really are. This tends to make one not be as strict in following through. ...Read more

Red smooth splotch on foot no pain , just warm to touch been there for over a week ?

Red blotch: This may be a remnant of an insect bite or irritation from footwear. The warmth persisting for a week is unusual. Infection of the skin does cause warmth and spreading redness but I doubt that you have an untreated infection for that long. Definitely see your physician if burning,warmth and worsening redness occurs. ...Read more

The past 2 days I've been feeling really hot even my skin is warm to touch but when taking temperature it's 36.9. I'm scared it's something really bad?

Overworked emotions?: I think you are anxious about something. You need to relax a bit and do not worry as you have no evidence of high temperature of your body. You can cool down your systems with light exercise like a daily walk(morning & evening both is even better).
Take shower twice a day and goswiming(indoors) if you like swimming and it is convenient.
Practice relaxation with Yogic breathing(deep and slow breath ...Read more
