Avatar m tn Hi i am a 27 year old male and recently have had quite sore skin on my lower back and right hand side. It feels like the skin is very tight and quite hot.This area has a few moles, but all moles look small and round. My dad has had skin cancer and obviously this worries me. There is not one particular mole that concerns me but it is more that the area itself is quite uncomfortable. There are also around 15 small freckles which i have not noticed before.
Avatar f tn From time to time the skin on the side and back of my head gets very sore and tender in about 2 or 3 inches round spots. no rash or sores. usually only hurts if you touch it or sometimes by laying on pillow. I have been told the area gets pinker than my normal skin. What could this be?
Avatar m tn I'm experiencing extremely sore skin on my back and arms, which feels like severe sunburn and hurts to be touched or even where a shirt. I've read from other viewers that this may be neurological and stem from a previuos injury. Could the recent spinal fusion surgery I've had be the cause of this and how long I can expect it to last?
Avatar n tn I have experienced the same type of back irritation, which feels just like it is the skin on my back feeling sore when touched or when I move. I have been diagnosed to have rheu. arthritis, however, it is being controlled through medication. Since I have just started feeling this sensation, I thought that I would find if the MedHelp community has an answer. I am interested in any thoughts concerning this phenomonem.
Avatar m tn My wife has got a sore on her right leg due to untreated wound few years back. And it was growing wider and wider and left a scar mark. She had consult skin doctor and she informed her that it was fungal infection. Then she was treated with antifungal. But in vain, it isn't working, please help!
Avatar n tn Hello, By this time, a wound on the superficial layers of skin should have healed. Since it has been present for such a long time, so infection and other possibilities like a cold sore need to be ruled out. I would suggest a dermatologist’s consultation because treatment for both are entirely different, Swab culture of the discharge may help in diagnosis. Hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries. Kind regards.
Avatar n tn My dog has a lumped up sore on her back and when you squeeze it white stuff comes out. I have been squeezing it and then cleaning with alcohol and antibiotic cream. What is this? Am I cleaning this the right way?
Avatar n tn Next day it was red and still sensitive but no scabbing and what looked like dry skin. Next day it was still red and looked like little patches of raw skin. I am afraid that this is herpes but it is none of the textbook symptoms of which. My girlfriend has always used protection i doubt very seriously that i contracted it from her, she has never had symptoms. I did some research and i thought it was balanitis but i read later that it can only affect the head of a circumcized male.
Avatar n tn I noticed a sore spot on my back near the right shoulder blade that is sensitive and tender. There is no external inflamation or discoloroation. The sensation comes and goes, but recently it has gotten much worse and has sinced spread to the right side of my chest, right breast and under my arm. It has been going on for several days and is localized to this area. Any suggestions?
Avatar m tn hi i havedeveloped a patch of skin on the top left part of my back. about 2" sq. it only hurts with gentle contact,like clothing brushing it. there is no rash or mark at all. its been over two weeks now but does not seem to be getting better or worse.
Avatar m tn A few days ago I've noticed a small sore/lesion on the back of my left hand. It was a little itchy at first but not at all after the first day or so. The first picture (back of my hand) is recent and it's a picture of the sore almost healing. It used to be slighty bumpier. 1. Is this a sign of an infection/STD/HIV? Also, recently my leg started to itch.. I thought it was a bug bite but it does not look like one. The second picture is of my lower right leg. 2.
Avatar n tn I have had every tests you can suggest,and all comes back negative . Any ideas please on how to stop the soreness and discumfort.
Avatar n tn Some times in he shower it feels as though the skin on my hands tightens up and feels like my veins are going to pop out. Ive been told by a Dr that i do have the chance at some point in life of getting diabeties.. just wondering if this could be a beginging symptom or maybe just dehydration or some other problem. My inner thighs hurt even when i walk. Help Please!!
Avatar n tn I came out in some large red spots on the side on side of my face a week ago. The doctor gave me some hydrocortrosone cream but did not say what the rash was. It is now spreading to my neck & chin. It is very itchy & sore. Any ideas what it could be?
Avatar n tn I have a small sore on the back of my hand near my middle knuckle. I'm pretty sure it popped up out of nowhere. The spot is flat, a bit shinier than my skin, and a shade darker than my normal skin color and it feels like a burn when I press my finger on it. I don't remember burning myself, though... I should also mention that I work with cats on a daily basis. Could it be something that I got from them?
Avatar n tn For about the last year my head on my penis has been sore. The skin is shiny looks real thin and is red. There is some soreness on the shaft but the skin does not look like the head. I have had a Derm tell me it was a reaction to soap so I have been using a Derm soap. It also burns after sex or masturbation. I have tried creams and keeping it dry and clean and there is no difference. I am circumcised. I have never had anything like this in my whole life and I am 49 and a diabetic.
Avatar m tn I am not sure, but I believe it began doing this right after I took a fairly controlled fall from a horse. I landed on my back and this little spot was sore afterward...only to seemingly "heal". Now the soreness/itchiness has returned...I think the itchiness wasn't there initially. I can't say for sure whether this started after the fall, as I thought very little of it then. There is no rash, redness or any oddness at all. But if I press it, it's quite sore...
Avatar f tn I hav had lumps on the back of my head, one towards the right side of my head on the top and the other on the right very bottem since ,i dont know when tht started i found one when i was itching my scalp and the other one i found rubbing the top part of my neck close to my head , but anyways last night all of a sudden i get this weird, tight feeling pinch on the back of my head and the pain kinda tingled down to my fingers, in a way. -its very hard to explain...
Avatar f tn hello,i have had a little circular spot (within the skin) on the back of my neck for a good 3 days now,its like the size of a bean and when pressed on it,it hurts a little. not massively but is very uncomfortable for me. what is it?
Avatar f tn Hello, Today my skin on the back of my thighs became really sensitive. This has happened a couple of times before, usually once or twice a year for the past two years. It lasts for a day or two when it occurs. It always happens on the back of my thighs. The whole back portion of my thighs are sore and sensitive. There is no visible rash, either. If anything rubs against it it hurts.
Avatar n tn Apply an antibiotic ointment and keep the sore clean. It is probably a bite or an abrasion. It will probably take about 10 days to heal and you should not further traumatize it with sexual activity until it is healed. Human bites are often infected. If the swelling/pain are getting worse day by day, see a physician immediately. S.A. Liroff, M.D.
Avatar m tn sir, i hav small sores on my pennis.when skin is moved back there are sore with pus on the penni head i saw them approx 6 years back and due to lack of knowledge on this i neglected goin to be married within a year and i want my problem to be cured..
Avatar n tn On my upper back I have patchy, sometimes flaky skin. When it is not flaking it looks patchy and the skin looks a little like shiny stretchmarks. It is more towards the middle upper back. When in the sun (rarely) It gets even flakier and it doesn't seem to tan like the rest of my back. So it looks more obvious. It isn't itchy or sore. But It is unsightly and always there. I had a dermatologist scrape it and check it and she said she doesn't know what it is. She reccommended I just use lotion.
Avatar n tn Hello, i recently developed a sore on each side of my penis..and there is like a ring of dry skin that goes around it in the same thinking well im hoping its due to my recent weight gain, and maybe due to the fact that its not getting dry all the time after i said ive recently gained weight and it seems not when i set or lay down my penis goes inside, kinda like a turtle goes in its shell....
