Some type of trauma: Linear scabs can be caused by trauma, from scratching, or from being scratched by a plant or an animal.

Neuropathy: Sounds like a nerve problem, so we'd call it neuropathy. It can be caused by anything damaging a nerve. Shingles or herpes can do this, but if it has been going on for 2 weeks I'd expect there to be spots or bumps or something showing on the skin by now. It can also be caused by your immune system attacking the nerve or by the nerve being pinched in your spine or elsewhere. See your doc for help. ...Read more

Dr says I have a shoulder impingment. My symptoms are dull upper arm discomfort, specific neck pain radiating into my ear. Is this normal?
Seems likely: Impingement can cause many symptoms but usually with pain somewhere. It is usually in the shoulder itself, but can radiate down the arm or to the neck. Dull discomfort may be your pain.

23 F. I have 2 sores under each arm pit after shaving but it's been three (3) days since shaving and there still there, what are they?? what I can do?

If they enlarge or do not go away after 2-3 days, you need to see a healthcare provider for proper diagnosis and treatment. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
Usually not: Waking up with a numb arm can be the result of laying on the arm for a long period of time, causing prolonged compression of a nerve. However, the same symptoms can be due to an underlying condition such as carpal tunnel syndrome or cervical radiculopathy. Occasional symptoms are probably nothing to worry about. However, if you frequently wake with numbness in the hand or arm, see your doctor. ...Read more
