Intertrigo: The peri-rectal area is a common area for a rash known as intertrigo. This starts off as an irritation and then secondarily becomes colonized by yeast usually. Avoid using wet wipes to wipe the area. It can be treated with a combination of topical steroid and topical anti-yeast creams and often takes a few weeks to resolve. Zeasorb powder is useful to prevent recurrence. See a dermatologist. ...Read more

I have a sharp shooting pain in the top/middle of my back on the left hand side. I have had it for about a week, is it anything serious?

Probably not: Pretty vague symptoms - difficult to know for sure what is wrong. Minor things like an inflamed muscle or joint can cause temporary sharp pain.

I have a recurring sharp shooting pain on the back of my left hand just above my index finger. What could that be dr.?

Sharp shooting pain: This area on the back of your hand contains the tendon to extend your wrist, an area of skin supplied by the radial nerve, and the joint that connects your finger to your hand. You could have an injury to the joint or the tendon, causing a pain in that area, or you could have irritation of the radial nerve. The last of these should also cause tingling or numbness in that area. ...Read more
