Avatar m tn is it likely you contract syphilis on your hands from touching a sore? no it is not. the skin on the hands if thick and not as vulnerable to infection as the delicate genital skin is.
Avatar n tn But skin is definitely sore when you even lightly rub over it. Have not found any answers or ideas to what could cause it. Has started in the last week and it comes and goes.
Avatar f tn I have several health issues but the one I want to ask about right now is does anyone know what causes me to have sore spots at various places and various times in my skin?? It feels like the skin gets sore and tender to touch. It will usually be like maybe a six inch square spot that gets sore. Right now it is on my left side halfway between my waist and underarm. It is strange.
Avatar f tn This condition is called meralgia paraesthetica which manifests itself as pain, tingling or burning sensation of outer thigh. It may occur due to injury to nerve either due to spinal deformity or along its path to thigh by any ligament or tendon stretch, excessive tight clothing (therefore it is also called "jeans disease"), diabetic neuropathy or damage to nerve after surgery etc. Another nerve which may cause pain in legs is sciatic nerve compression.
Avatar n tn I also experience the same thing. I know my body's immune system is low again when my skin feel sore to touch. I would then expect to have fever from viral infections. There are times that only certain areas of my body like for example the left side skin of my left leg or arm feel sore to touch. I believe that this happens when my body is trying to fight the virus in my system. And so I double my dose of Moringa Oleifera vitamins every time I feel like having colds and fever.
947967 tn?1325346253 Im on week 5 of treatment and for the last 2 weeks I have had soreness on my outer hip to the touch. Also tenderness of the abdomen to the touch near my injection sites. Is this normal? My outer hips feel as though they are bruised but there is no signs of bruising.
Avatar m tn Extreme sensitivity to skin and heightened painful response to pressure could be due to fibromyalgia, post herpetic neuralgia caused by shingles and chicken pox. Certain other conditions which cause the skin painful to touch are chronic fatigue syndrome, deficiencies of vitamin B1, B2, B6, migraine, and tactile defensiveness. Tactile defensiveness is caused by midbrain defect. Post spinal fusion may be responsible if certain nerve roots are damaged or entrapped.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have quite an odd problem...about a year and a half ago or so ago I got into shaving with cream and a brush (im a guy). I got on well with this combination but one day I decided to use shaving SOAP instead of cream. Being new to the whole thing I didnt really understand how I was supposed to use a soap with a brush and could not produce a lather so I started rubbing the shaving brush on my face very roughly to try and produce a lather.
Avatar f tn The following day I noticed that a patch of dry skin had formed on the outside of my penis about half way up. This area was a little red and quite painful to the touch. I applied some moisturising cream and it seems to be improving, however, when I examine my penis now I can see what look like tiny red cracks and it is still a little sore but improving. SO...
Avatar f tn Does anybody else have a sore to touch stomach? Just at the bottom where the baby ls growing.
Avatar n tn I suggest you see a Vascular MD
Avatar m tn Herpes requires contact with a sore or skin where the shedding of the virus is occurring. HIV requires access to your blood stream of heavily infected bodily fluids, which is exceptionally rare to occur with a female without actual penetration (and even then very rare).
Avatar m tn My skin on my abdomen and back is painful to touch. There is no bruising or injury, but it is very painful. What could be causing this?
Avatar m tn t feel very deep either, it is just on the skin it started off on my leg now its move to my belly and side. There is nothing to see at all.
Avatar f tn From time to the the skin on side and back of my head gets very sore. There are no open sores or any rash but is extremely sore too touch. only last a few days but will some times move from back to side. Doesn't not hurt unless I touch or sometimes when pillow touches..
Avatar n tn I also have numbness in my fingertips at times and they get cold. It hurts to touch anything cold or any kind of metal. I do have some blisters on the palms of my hands but they are not visable. This started in one hand and it was just dry skin that would peel, but now its in both hands and very painfull, the only thing that takes the pain away is if I soak in seasalt water. Do you have any idea as to what this may be?
541818 tn?1214016267 m not sure for how long ago, but, I had these large bumps which in time grew into lumps which sometime grew sore to the touch. I would get them under my breast, under the butocks, even "on the and/or near the crack of the buttock" to the point it's hard to sit, but the worst one's are on the inner thighs, where sometimes, they either get really huge and hurt or they'll be small. Sometimes I burst or they'll burst, but whenever they burst, it seem they switch sides.
Avatar n tn I see a specialist May 15th and I hope to GOD that he can fix it. I find it very hard to walk or even touch my skin I did find a warm bath helps to get my body all at the same temperature not sure why it feels good but once my body cools down it comes back.
Avatar m tn Yes - it takes more than a simple touch of a sore to transmit it. You would need some kind of friction or broken skin for the bacteria to penetrate keratanized skin. You work with syphilis patients, and you haven't been educated on this stuff? Just wear your gloves, and you'll be fine.
Avatar f tn You could only get HSV if your skin got in touch with the lesions on that lady's skin. So if you didn't see or touch any sore, the possibilities of getting it are remote if not zero. If yo guys want to know about each other's status, you can go together to the doctor and test. That way you will be sure. All the best.
Avatar m tn I assume that when we refer to skin-to-skin transmission of diseases such as HSV-1, HSV-2, HPV and syphilis, we are really alluding to the possibility of getting the virus on your skin, increasing the chances of making its way to a mucous membrane. For example, by getting on your finger and then going on to touch your eyes or your genitals.
