Hot Tub Folliculitis: Hot tub folliculitis is an infection of the skin around the lower part of the hair shaft (hair follicles). It occurs when you come into contact with certain bacteria that live in warm, wet areas. Hot tub folliculitis is caused by the bacteria pseudomonas aeruginosa. This form of bacteria survives in hot tubs, especially tubs made of wood. Controlling the acid and chlorine level prevents this.

Burning, hard heavy swallowing, pain in chest between the breast. What could be the cause?

Burning, hard heavy swallowing, pain in chest between the breast. What could be the cause?

Esophagus issue: These symptoms sound like an esophageal disorder. This avenue between mouth and stomach can become inflamed, leading to chest pain or fullness as well as difficulty swallowing. I would recommend you purchase Omeprazole over the counter, a once a day acid blocker that will likely alleviate symptoms. If not substantial improvement in a few days then seek out a gastroenterologist.
