I am experiencing skin pain on my right flank that hurts even when my shirt touches it. I do not have a rash that I can see. What's the cause?

Early shingles??: Not certain, but it does sound like local nerve irritation, especially because of the super-sensitivity. If a rash breaks out from here, see MD right away, I would be concerned you might be immune-suppressed. Of course other ailments could cause, and be very benign. Also, if it is shingles, earlier the treatment, the better. This is always perplexing. Get well. Happy New Year. ...Read more

Hi I just noticed that before the head of the penis I have these red small rashes. They are not bumps, you can't feel a bump when you touch it?

Hi I just noticed that before the head of the penis I have these red small rashes. They are not bumps, you can't feel a bump when you touch it?

Most likely, ok...: As long as no local discomfort, such rashes may suggest mild balanitis (inflammation of glans penis), which is usually related with redundant foreskin with poor local hygiene. Without detailed history and inspection, it's hard to make a firm statement.

If any doubt, go to see an expert in the field.

Best luck... ...Read more

I have a spot on my spine that is very sore and along my right side from my back to my stomach my skin is painful to touch on the surface. No rashes or signs of other symptom. A little dizzy.

Checkup: Not sure what the spot is due to. The peripheral nerves run in a linear pattern along the back. The area you are describing corresponds to the Thoraic or mid back vertebra.

The skin on my back has been tingly (feels like needles and pins) when my shirt touches it. I do NOT have a rash.

You may not: See a rash but one may be "in your future" since sometimes SHINGLES (Herpes Zoster) begins this way.

You should discuss these symptoms with your PCP (Primary Care Provider) since early use of ANTI-VIRAL medication may limit the disease if "caught early"

Just a thought!

Skin hurts with no signs of a rash, on chest and back?

Shingles: If you have one sided skin pain in a wrap-around band from chest to back, this is early shingles. Perhaps you've been under stress lately to cause it to come out.

Why is the skin on my shoulder sensitive to touch (feels burnt)? There is no rash or trauma, and this area was not exposed to a large amount of sun.

Why is the skin on my shoulder sensitive to touch (feels burnt)? There is no rash or trauma, and this area was not exposed to a large amount of sun.

Neuritis?: A very common cause is neuritis or nerve inflammation of the nerves supplying sensation to your shoulders, where nothing shows but it can itch, burn or hurt for short or long term. Steroids don't usually help much. Topical doxepin cream or capsaicin creams often help with relief. May be due to trauma or other causes including referred pain from the cervical or upper thoracic spine. PCP can help. ...Read more

My 18 month old son has a rash on the right side of his head/forehead. It's a little itchy to him but it doesn't hurt. I'm not sure what it is?

A localized rash on: One side of the head is most consistent with a contact allergic rash or dermatitis, especially if it is itchy. To confirm, a photo or exam is most helpful. Those usually clear in a week or so, but in the meantime, topical creams for itching, which can include hydrocortisone cream, may be helpful. A fungal infection, ringworm, is usually coin shaped, and impetigo is moist and crusty. ...Read more

Don't know: Rashes are really impossible to diagnose over the computer, so seeing a dr for a visual examination would be your best bet. In the bikini line though, you may have shaved and that can cause an irritation and folliculitis like rash. Groin areas commonly get fungal infections too. But as stated, these are guesses only, see a dr for the answer and tx, best wishes. ...Read more
