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. Read more about these conditions at the link below. I hope that helps a little! ...Read more

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

I have severe left, low back pain with spasms, tender to touch, numb skin over this area. No rash but limited ROM upon flex/ext. What can cause this?

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

Wife had MRI with contrast dye yesterday. Has blotchey rash predominantly on chest, low back, and abdomen. Skin is warm. Face was swollen, has subsided. Took allegra (fexofenadine) yesterday & today. Worry?

Wife had MRI with contrast dye yesterday.  Has blotchey rash predominantly on chest, low back, and abdomen.  Skin is warm.  Face was swollen, has subsided.  Took allegra (fexofenadine) yesterday & today. Worry?

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

I suffer with mild wear and tear in lower back but lately as the pain has got worse i e started to get a rash all over my back, arms. And chest.?

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

I have rashes on my lower back, shoulders, abs and inside of my thighs, also ring worm on hand, what does this mean?(the rashes aren't visable)

Rash: I think the rash would dissipate when your ringworm is treated. Often an infection or irritation in one area of the body will stimulate you to have a rash elsewhere. Get the ringworm treated and the rash should resolve. ...Read more

29f few bumps in nose. Have grown into large white masses over a week. Swollen lymph, small patchy rashes, lower back pain. Should I be seen?

Nasal polyps?: I'm having some trouble visualizing your description, but maybe you have nasal polyps? Regardless, a physician needs to evaluate you and examine the nose. Enlarging mass in the nasal cavity should be seen, particularly in the context of changing lymph nodes, should be seen. I suspect nasal polyps and/or infection may be the cause and both require treatment. ...Read more

I have a flat, reddish rash that started on one side of my chest then moved to the other, and then to my lower back. Is it common rosea? If not, what?

Many possibilities: If you mean rosacea, that would be an uncommon distribution for it. Possibilities include eczema (if it itches), ringworm (if it doesn't), an allergic response to something you came in contact with, and many other less common things. A dermatologist can give you a precise diagnosis after directly examining the rash. ...Read more

I am achy and run a slight fever, and noticed a rash on my lower back. What could this be?

Fever with rash: Without a picture, it would be really hard to diagnose this. If you have had immunizations for measles, mumps and rubella — that's NOT what you have. But there are many other diseases that are associated with a fever — chicken pox, Lyme disease, exotic illnesses if you have traveled, etc. Because you have a fever with this rash, I would recommend that you actually go in to see a doctor. ...Read more
