20 yr old male. Right nipple is sensitive & has strong burning/stinging sensation that gets worse when my shirt touches it? Just noticed it today.

Gynecomastia: Very typical presentation of gynecomastia, an inflammatory process affecting males. It's benign, usually self limiting, but can be very annoying. You may develop a firm, tender area beneath the nipple. If it's intolerable, or last more than about 3 months, you may choose to have it excised. See your doctor at your leisure if this persists. Good luck.. ...Read more

Will eating spicy food cause blood to appear in the stool? Also stinging sensation maybe from overly spicy food that has come out?

I have a burning/stinging sensation on the skin of my upper lip, I have been out in the sun a lot lately, should I be concerned?

Happens: Funny enough, after a significant amount of sun exposure, I developed the same sensation on my right upper lip 2-3 weeks ago.

I have been gardening and maybe pulled out a few nettles wearing gloves. I now have stinging sensation in the knuckles of my right hand?

I have been gardening and maybe pulled out a few nettles wearing gloves. I now have stinging sensation in the knuckles of my right hand?

Ouch!: The pain from touching nettles is severe but brief. After an hour or so, or less, it hurts much less. Wear gloves henceforth! It is a horrible pain., there is nothing like that in my experience. I have felt it once, and, I hope to never feel it again! Wash your hands with mild soap of course. Wash anything you touched after touching the nettles, too. ...Read more

Had uti for 4 months white blood cells fowl smell feels need to push when urinating stinging sensation feeling negative std had 4 different antibiotis?

Complicated problem: This sounds much too complex to expect clear answers on a forum like this, especially with such brief questions and replies. Foul vaginal odor usually is bacterial vaginosis, not UTI -- but you could have both. If an infectious diseases specialist is not involved in your care, that probably is something to consider. Or, since you're in UK, maybe an NHS GUM clinic. Good luck! ...Read more

My wife is having a sharp stinging sensation in her lower left abdomen what could this be and will it require us to take a trip to the e.R?

Yes: Either the er or a doctor, sooner rather than later. It could be inflammation of the colon called diverticulitis. If it becomes infected it could form an abscess and be a threat. She needs an exam and possibly imaging of her abdomen. Depending on what is found she may need antibiotics and possible surgery. It could be something much more benign, but find out. ...Read more
