Erythema nodosum: This sounds like it may be erythema nodosum and can be representative of numerous systemic diseases.

Could laser hair removal cause a long-term burning sensation on my shins? I don't have a rash, and it is worse when touched. Thanks!

Could laser hair removal cause  a long-term burning sensation on my shins? I don't have a rash, and it is worse when touched. Thanks!

Tough one: There is some post laser discomfort but it should not last for weeks on end. Did you have initial complications like burns or blisters? I worry about a nerve injury developing a complex pain syndrome in the shins. I would see a neurologist if this is going on for over 2 weeks possible a pain management specialist. Especially if the skin is getting tighter, shine and painful ...Read more

Scraped leg has a burning sensation I have tried a cool rag and ic pac?

Scraped leg has a burning sensation I have tried a cool rag and ic pac?

Likely nerve problem: Your skin has tons of nerve endings. When they get hurt, your nerves may get very inflamed causing the burning sensation. Ice and cool rag may make it feel cooler, but as long as the nerve is agitated and inflamed, it will continue to feel as if it is burning. It is hard to say when it will stop since nerves may take awhile to heal or improve if it is not permanently damaged. ...Read more

Burning: This kind of sensation can suggest some irritation of a nerve, but also sometimes referred pain from a joint or muscle that might irritate surrounding nerves. Can also be early infection like shingles, though usually that is episodic.
