This : This is very challenging to answer without a clinical examination so i would recommend you see a dermatologist. It could be many possibilities, including tinea versicolor (common on the back), eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, folliculitis, fungal infection, or other possibilities.

Could be shingles:(: Even though herpes zoster/shingles is uncommon in younger people your age, it can happen. The pain comes first; then the blistering rash can occur a few days later. The burning nature of your pain raises suspicion for this. See your doctor ASAP; anti-viral medications may be useful to shorten the course/reduce your symptoms. Best wishes:) ...Read more

Everything or: nothing. Literally everyone gets back pain. If it is localized to the back, then, you're in the 90% where it is the muscles and NOT a disk http://www.nerdpocalypse.net/back%20pain.html ...Read more

Improving: If her symptoms are improving on Allegra (fexofenadine) there should be no permanent harm. It is important that you report this allergic reaction to the radiology department and to your physician so that this contrast agent will not be used on you in the future. In addition see to it that this allergy is listed in your records. ...Read more

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?

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

You have 2 issues: I don't think the 2 issues are related. The back issues is super common and just requires heat, massage, stretching, a chiro, acupuncture and pt. See my other pain answers. The rash will have to be seen my your doc to id. A rash requires the "eyeball" test. One has to see it to make any assumptions as to what it might be. ...Read more
