What can I put on or take to get rid of sharp pain? I have a rash with blisters on rib cage under the left breast and it's very painful.

?Shingles

Rash
Go see your DR. This could be shingles/ Herpes Zoster, a viral infection resulting from reactivation of the same virus that causes chickenpox. Take ibuprofen for now if you have no allergies or you're not taking warfarin/coumadin. Take care!

Sharp pain on right side by rib cage that comes and goes. Also nauseous. What could be the cause of the pain?

Gallbladder?

Pain
This sounds like pain associated with cholecystitis or gall bladder disease. If pain associated with food intake, especially greasy foods, then it probably is the gall bladder. You should have an evaluation from your primary care doctor.

Only a thorough evaluation, physical and psychological, can determine this. Get started with the physical part first. See a primary care physician with whom you have, or can build, a ongoing relationship. If physical issues are unlikely, see a mental health professional.
