Father was diagnosed Herpes from blisters in his upper back portion with minor fever. How did he get it and what precautions to avoid contagiousness?

Herpes Zoster: Shingles are a reactivation of the childhood infection form Chicken Pox. IT is not contagious. He did not just 'get it'. This is a common and painful reactivation of a previous infection. It must be treated aggressively with antiviral medication. And then he should get the shingles vaccine so this does not occur again. ...Read more

I had a blister (I think) on the inside of my upper back left molar against my gums. It eventually popped (rather gross). Infection or cavity maybe?

BLISTER: you should see your dentist as soon as you can as this sounds like an infection of the nerve (the nerve in the tooth may have died leading to the infection). It is easily solved with a root canal and crown. See your dentist soon before the blister returns. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. I don't know your diagnosis. There are a number of things which could present similarly. I don't know your age, if you have family history of cardiac disease, if you are a smoker, hypertensive etc. But based on the fact that you have chest pain, nausea & dizziness, I do would get it evaluated forth with. Here are possible symptoms of a mycocardial infarction (heart attack). Chest pain, tightness, squeezing or fullness is the most common presentation. However the pain can also present in the upper back, the upper middle abdomen, jaw, head, teeth or in the arms (left more than right). One could have nausea, vomiting or it could feel like indigestion or heartburn. Feeling short of breath, sweating and just feeling out of sorts can also occur. About a fourth of people have no significant symptoms during a heart attack. Although there are things you describe that wouldn't be real typical for a heart attack, the problem is that some people have some very atypical cardiac events. Recommend that this be evaluated expeditiously. ...Read more

31 yr old female upper back for bout a week no other symptoms burning feeling in back what could it be if serious would I have other symptoms?

Burning feeling: Is there a rash there? Because that could be shingles. If there's no rash after a week, it's probably not shingles. Did you have any trauma? A fall or bump into something? Maybe there is a little peripheral nerve that is getting pinched in the spine. Serious symptoms would be worsening pain, fevers. If it gets worse, go see someone. ...Read more
