Small red line coming from a sore on left arm. Is it time to worry?

Small red line coming from a sore on left arm. Is it time to worry?

Perhaps: The red line is just inflammation/infection following the lymphatics. Lymphatics are channels carrying "foreign" material towards a lymph node, which is a sieve in the body. It filters out "foreign" material. So, this just means that your immune system is function. Worry only if you have a fever, chills, sweating, pain, marked tenderness or redness over the area. ...Read more

Itching all over. Red marks on neck. Left arm weak and sore. Haven't eaten anthing today but feet swelled after eating chicken yesterday.

Allergy to food?: Good morning, it is likely an allergic reaction to either chicken or to the flavoring agents used to cook. Medications such as benedryl may provide a temperorary relief. You may have to try again later with just boiled chicken in future to rule out a reaction to flavoring agents. ...Read more

Does cervical steonisis cause upper back pain and left arm to be sore at times?

Maybe: Cervical stenosis is caused by the opening in the vertebras of the neck being too small to allow the spinal cord to move freely. A nerve may be pinched as it comes off the main cord, and cause back pain, especially upper back and arm pain. Please see your doctor to have an exam and maybe some imaging to help figure it out. ...Read more

This month very sore throat irregular periods small rash on left arm decrease in appetite tested for HIV twice both were negative were they wrong?

This month very sore throat irregular periods small rash on left arm decrease in appetite tested for HIV twice both were negative were they wrong?

Unlikely: It is unlikely that 2 tests for HIV would both be wrong. Our HIV tests now are very accurate. The stress of worrying about this could effect your periods and your appetite. There are many causes of rashes and sore throats. Get seen for these since gonorrhea and strep can both cause a sore throat and both need to be treated with antibiotics. Hope this helps. ...Read more

My left arm has been aching and feeling weak last two days..It comes and goes..Should i worry?..Im thirty nine female and a borderline diabetic.

See physician ASAP: Worrying is never helpful, but good self-care is. Please see your primary md/do as soon as possible about these symptoms. If you're borderline diabetic, some cardiovascular concerns come with that . . . Enough to warrant an exam and probably ekg & other tests with these complaints. If your own doctor isn't available, go to urgent care or er. ...Read more

I have small red dots on my left arm like eight. They don't itch and there not bumps.?

Doctor can evaluate: Rashes are very difficult to describe in words, so an exam by a primary care doctor and/or a dermatologist is helpful, when the rash is present. Sometimes rashes occur from bug bites, fungus/yeast, reactions with chemicals, irritants, plants, allergens, etc... If one cannot go to the doctor, then taking a series of photos to show the doctor later is helpful. ...Read more
