See a dermatologist: This could any one of a number of things so I would really recommend you see a dermatologist. It could be something as simple as dry skin (winter itch) to something more serious. It is best to have it examined.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

It can B due 2 scoli: But only in severe cases. This is because of reduced lung capacity from the curve. It does need looking into as scoliosis does not have symptoms, unless it is so severe that it is decompensating & collapsing.

Had influenza A couple weeks ago, symptoms gone except now have croupy hard cough. Normal for upper back soreness?

Yes: You could get back soreness from coughing. Sometimes cough lingers after a viral infection has resolved. Typically goes away in few weeks. If the pain is excessive you can see if some pain medications help. However, if cough gets worse you may want to see your PCP. Until the cough resolves you may have some muscle aches in the back.

Try mastic gum: Mastic gum (available from a health food store or on-line) is an effective remedy for GERD. Mastic is from the bark of a Mediterranean tree, and has been used for hundreds of years for gastrointestinal problems. Mastic kills H. pylori, the spirochete that causes GERD and stomach ulcers. 1 gram/day for two weeks will eradicate H. pylori. Also speeds healing of ulcers.
