What damage?: You don't give your age or history, without which no one could guess what this is. If you have a hole, you need to be seen by a clinician, especially if it is painful or red or hot or if it is changing rapidly. ...Read more
Saw PCP for shingles, right side of face. No rash. prescription Valtrex (valacyclovir). Asked to watch for rash on tip of nose. "Bump" today, but on left side of tip. ER?
Antiviral treatment: There is 'one level higher' in terms of antiviral treatment for shingles -& that's intravenous acyclovir. It's heavy duty stuff and you would need to go to the ER to get that going. The real question is though, is that 'bump' at all related to shingles Y/N. Given that this can be serious - affecting the face and possibly the eye, I think you should get it seen today. If there's an ID doc, ask 'em ...Read more

I've had a sore on the top left nostril... the sore is a little on the inside too... very sore to touch.... it's like on the rim of my nose.... ??
Hard to say: without seeing the lesion(s). It could be a form of bacterial vestibulitis(inflammation of the nasal vestibule) and a trial of over-the-counter antibiotic ointment like Neosporin may not be unreasonable. Remember it could also, but less like, be herpes related. If it's getting progressively more painful or spreading seek an inperson evaluation. ...Read more
No sore throat just neck ache. runny nose. tiny white spots on back of uvula. one on tip of tongue went away with salt water. Looks like herpangina?
Please stop: Please stop trying to diagnose yourself. If you have Herpangina you would probably also have an acute fever. You can't see the back of your Uvula without putting a mirror behind it. Your symptoms suggest an infection, so go see your Family Physician. Let him/her do the diagnosis and treatment plan. You'll be glad you did. ...Read more

I have a purple/blackish small \u0026#40;size of the tip of a pen tip on the inside of my mouth the side of my cheek has a riddged feel.
BothCould be normal.: A small dot on purple / blacklist dot on the inside of your mouth could be as innocent as a petechiae blood vessel break from cheek bite. Though way less likely, it could be a very serious issue. The ridge you feel in the inside of your mouth could represent a positive "impression" left from where your upper and lower teeth meet. Watch the "dot" if it isn't gone a week or to see your dentist. ...Read more
I've got a rash on my forehead between my eyes and on my nose. Is that a typical symptom of herpes simplex?
No: The most common condition affecting these areas in the way you describe is rosacea. You could also have shingles (zoster) . Check with your ophthalmologist to rule out or treat these conditions. H simplex usually causes a very localized wet blistery lesion on the skin rather than a rash. ...Read more

Sinuses free but pain on bridge of nose and under eyes can barely touch
my nose skin tight on bridge of nose lots of pain
Not : Not enough information without an exam to fully answer your question. What do you mean that your sinuses are "free"? Do you have nasal congestion? Did you have an injury to your nose? Are your eyes involved in any way? There are multiple sinuses in your skull, above the nose and eyes, below the eyes, and between the eyes. They all drain into the nose. Any one or more of these sinuses can be affected with either sinusitis or an infection leading to pain and tenderness to touch. I recommend that you schedule an appointment with your physician for evaluation. ...Read more
