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 f tn The cause of fibromyalgia is often hereditary or due to a physical or emotional trauma or due to lingering infection in the body such as due to mono. The treatment is a mix and match of analgesics, anti depressants, anti seizure medications, physical therapy and counseling. It can also be due to extreme fatigue caused by anemia, diabetes, hypothyroidism or due to anxiety. I think you should discuss these possibilities with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining.
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 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.
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 im going thru that same pain except mine has pain that starts in the mid section of the right side of my back and works its way around the front mainly on my right abdomin n lightly on my left to go with it. i have been diagnosed with sciatica but this isnt wat ive read about it. the pain feels like someone is squeezing something and it will literally take my breath and if its really bad my right leg gives out. please help me....i appreciate any advice or help...
Avatar m tn Pretty much zero chance it is an STD!! You definitely got anxiety working against you here and the proof is how it is ok in the morning and as the day goes on and you think about this more, it gets worse. It's not an STD at all! Some of the pain you are experiencing is all in your head!!
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 I am a 23 year old female, with reynaud's phenomenon. Usually I suffer from very cold/numb hands, which only swell a little for maybe 10 minutes after they start to heat up. I woke up today with a very swollen index finger. I thought maybe I'd banged it, but now my little finger is swollen, too. They hurt to touch, and my hands are still cold and normal coloured. It's only on one hand - my right. I'm getting worried, now, because this hasn't happened before.
Avatar m tn I stupidly touched my own lip and cold sore without thinking and proceeded to touch my genitals while using the bathroom/scratching. I am really worried I've infected myself genitally because all these red spots/rash have suddenly appeared on my testicles. I have never seen these spots on my genitals before and I believe this was my first ever cold sore. I have read how extremely contagious a cold sore is and all the websites advise washing your hands immediately after touching your lip.
Avatar m tn I am 36 years old and my wife of 13 years is having tests done to identify a sore/itching on her vulva. She had a blood test last week and Herpes and other STD's were ruled out. I have read that HPV cannot be tested via a blood test. She is going back today and the Dr. is going to do a culture and maybe biopsy of the area. He already said her cervix and all internal observations looked normal. I am concerned this is HPV and that I have given it to her.
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 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 texture is normal, there's no discoloration, and I haven't injured it. It just is painful to touch. It sort of feels like the way your skin hurts when you have a really bad case of the flu, except in small patches only 3 inches long maximum, and you're not sick. Or like you've rubbed sandpaper over one place for ten minutes. It's mostly only sensitive to touch, but I've noticed that cold against the skin is can be very uncomfortable as well.
Avatar f tn My stomach is so sore and feels hard to the touch when I am standing up, my boobs are sore and have been for so long, I miss sleeping on my stomach as I can't because of my boobs being tender, my calves are hard and swollen and they kill me when I walk, am so over my body hurting like this and am so over throwing up every once in a while and feeling sick and hate feeling so tired and I spent most of a couple of weeks sleeping and still I feel like crap.
Avatar f tn I feel like my insides of my skin is ripping apart it hurts
Avatar f tn Hey I have a query. Im experiencing some itching around my vaginal opening and feeling like peeing more often than usual. I and have noticed a cluster of white small white skin tags inside my vaginal opening, and very tiny bits of white stuff coming out from that area. The bits are really really tiny. The tags are rough to touch but feel just like skin. They weren't there until 3 days ago.
7406493 tn?1453999212 I absolutely love my son and thank God for him!! I smile every time my family and friends rub my belly. But please, if I don't know you don't bring your behind over to me, extend your arm, open your hand, and begin rubbing my belly! :) Luckily I haven't had too many encounters with that. But I will say this and should probably be ashamed of myself, but I was freaked out when some kids did it the other day.
Avatar f tn is it possible to contract herpes this way? By him touching my skin? I don't know if he touched the sore before, but assuming he did (since people touch their faces all the time)? I shaved this morning, so there might have been minuscule cuts on my skin. Also the skin on my hands is a little broken. Also, assuming the virus was 'on' my skin, could I have transferred it to my eyes whilst taking my contact lenses out? I did wash my hands thoroughly before doing so, of course.
Avatar n tn t even let my hair touch the area. It is extremely debilitating. Can I touch my lips again/ go back to regular life? I assume its just fresh healed skin/ a slight scar(Sensitive skin) & thats why it is slightly pink. But my OCD tells me nooo you still infectious. Please Help!?
541818 tn?1214016267 I heard from a doctor site that this is where their is skin folds,.. Basically where a part of skin is folded OF COURSE =P. Under the buttcheek, boobs, lady parts, and under arms.. If it's on your Inner Thigh I'd say its probably a boil.. Get medicated powder, not baby powder, or scented powder because it may make it worse..Powder your inner thighs down, and also that part of your pants when your slide them on.. So instead of your legs rubbin together its the powder that rubs..
Avatar m tn So if I were to touch a herpes sore with my testicles, with my finger or the base of my penis (assuming it is all intact skin), and the virus never made it to membranes such as the gland, mouth, anus, eyes or nose, I would have no chance of getting infected?
Avatar m tn Thank you so much for your response! well, yeah I've been worrying this a lot, in fact, I got genital herpes before I had my son, and my son is 5 yrs now,he seems alright until now,but I can't stop worrying this, 'cause I read some on internet that some people claims that they got genital herpes by not doing any sexual contact with others and some even got genital herpes as a virgin. That really scares me.
Avatar f tn Have you had risky sex recently? If no then I would treat this like a rash or skin irritation. Make sure the area is cleaned gently and dry. You may try skin ointment with Cortisone that is designed for sensitive skin maybe something from the baby aisle. Per WebMD. This medication is used to treat a variety of skin conditions (e.g., insect bites, poison oak/ivy, eczema, dermatitis, allergies, rash, itching of the outer female genitals, anal itching).
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 I cut myself near my lip. Yesterday I noticed that it kinda turned into a sore? When I would touch it or my underwear would rub up against it, it would irritate it. I checked it this morning, and noticed it went down in size and doesn't hurt that much anymore, but it now has a white head? Does this mean it's an ingrown hair? Or something more serious? I'm too embarrassed to go and have my mom look at it. Help me please!!
