Why is my skin sore to touch

Common Questions and Answers about Why is my skin sore to touch


Avatar n tn 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 try to scratch as soft as I can but it very tender.  The itching and soreness is only in the middle of my head . The crown area..my hair is thinning a little in that area and it kind of feel a little scaby; but I can't really tell.  I am a 24 year old female. Black African American.  I don't take no medication. No known family history of This issue. I haven't got my hair relaxed in almost three years.all of my hair is natural now.
Avatar n tn i've only been sexually active with one partner who is free from stds and i have had no other symptoms common to any stds that i know of. the swollen part of red skin is sore to touch. what could it be?
Avatar n tn I have an appointment on Monday morning but I don't know if this is too long to wait to see what is wrong. It is now still on my left leg, on my left forearm and hand, by my right shoulder and now on my stomach again. I am not sure if going to a hospital will help since my appointment is 2 days away. I am in trememdous pain every time I move. Any advice would help.
667923 tn?1421466324 But, what is concerning me right now...IS why my skin in different areas so RAW or SORE? I thank you for any response...to help me. Oh, I have been dx'd with Addison's disease/ Fibromyalgia and have 5 disk herniations in my Thoracic(T7-T12) with Hypertrophy. I do have an AVM in my left Cerebullar Hemisphere. which hurts and feels that same soreness at times and like someone is pulling my hair there. I don't understand why it should ever hurt...
Avatar f tn But today when I checked on the area, it was still red/pink in color and sore to touch, and comes generally more irritated the more I touch and prod at the area to examine it. Upon further examination I realized there was no breakage in the skin, just more of a red and very slightly raised line that seemed to run along some vein. I have no itchiness, or other sores anywhere on my body and have never experienced anything like this before. Is this some sort of fungal infection? What should I do?
Avatar m tn 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. Do you know what this could be? I am due on my period this week, but I NEVER get this swelling in my joints. I have been stressed lately, but again, I don't ever swell. I've experienced dermititis when stressed before, but never swelling.
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!!
Avatar n tn The next day , although my neck was some better, I am still noticing that my skin is tender and sore to the touch. Does anyone know why this would be?
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 It doesn't hurt unless I touch it in which it is very sore to the touch. It's probably 2X2 inches. I have been taking antibiotics (penicillin) for about 2 weeks. Could this have anything to do with it? what else could it be?
Avatar f tn I have very sore breast to the touch. I have also started to have very ichy dry places that bleed if I scratch a little. I also had some raw irritation under both my breasts. I went to my gyn and he said I had fungus. I have used the cream that I was prescribed and the itching is much better, but now I have this sore, very dark, scally looking patch where the "fungus" had been. My nipple area is still very sore. Breast cancer does not run in my family that I'm aware of.
Avatar n tn I have a sore lump under the skin located on my upper left thigh. It's close to my privates. It's sore when I walk. I saw other people have roughly the same problem as I do. I'm worried about it. I squeezed it by accident, and bloody puss (I think) came out. The lump is roughly the size of a marble. I would like to know other people's opinions. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I also woke up this morning and found a grape sized lump in my groin between my right thigh and groin. Its very sore to touch. Its not visable and is deffinately under the skin. Things like this always happen to me on weekends when the clinic isnt open grrr. I am booking an amointment on Monday though. I am very worried, i have had abdominal pains for a year and only had intercourse once. They pu the abdominal pains down to IBS but iv always had that little worry.
541818 tn?1214019867 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 f tn This is associated with fatigue and a heightened and painful response to gentle touch (allodynia). Other symptoms include needle-like tingling of the skin, nerve pain, muscle aches and spasms, weakness in the limbs, functional bowel disturbances, and chronic sleep disturbances. Although fibromyalgia usually presents with chronic widespread pain, pain may also be localized in areas such as the shoulders, neck, low back, hips, or other areas.
611773 tn?1220712920 After many jobs later and finally for medical insurance, I went back to see my doctor for a check up and the new doctor had told me that I had HSV1 oral herpes. I freaked out. He explained the last doctor did tell me and prescribed me Valtrex. I don't remembered any of this. I wasn't aware of how was herpes. My intuition was that I was going to die. I can't believe I have STD. One year later, today. Now I have acknowledge of Herpes. But now I'm so conscious of have cold sore breakout.
Avatar f tn My muscles and joints have been really sore the past couple of days and I haven't done anything for them to have reason to be sore? Especially in my left leg, foot and shoulder! I hate it bc I'm 26 years old and should be able to run and play with my kids and just can't!
Avatar n tn you can actually get herpes on the genitals through oral, if the person performing the oral has HSV I (cold sores, etc), and a person is highly contagious 2-3 days prior to a breakout/obvious sores. It can also be transmitted simply by touch, it is a skin on skin virus and has nothing to do with bodily fluids and such. Yes, any fluid from a genital and/or cold sore is also contagious, but it's transmitted through the skin.
Avatar f tn Seems like the lesion is subsiding would syphilis sore subside in a week or two?
Avatar m tn this is kind of hard to explain. i have tiny little white bumps that arnt sore or itch or anything. they feel like the skin is peeling but i dont know why they would be peeling. im terrified that i might have an STD. the bumps are really small and you can hardly see them but they are in lttle clusters on the inside of both my top and bottom lips.
Avatar m tn Ok I'm sure Pretty sure I have genital herpes hsv1 from receiving oral because I did have tingling and then some sores appeared but that's why I was wondering if it Is possible to transfer to the mouth I wash my hands everytime I touch my genitals know & my pimple like thing on the upper lip has no type of pain know so I'm pretty sure I didn't pass it on to my mouth I also heard once you have hsv1 genital your immune to oral hsv1
Avatar n tn I am 19 years old, saw this when i googled sore breasts/nipples, my underneath of my breast have been very sore and my nipples are sore to touch, i have been off birth control for about 3 weeks now (recommended by doctor because it was making me sick..after taking it for so long, dont know how that works..) but just a few days ago i noticed that my nipples hurt really bad and now my lower breasts are very sore, i dont belive i am pregnant, this is the first time this has happend.
Avatar m tn Eventually, the layer peels back, leaving the underside sore to the touch. As the condition worsens, I find myself pulling back – as best I can – the upper layer of hard skin. Sometimes it bleeds, sometimes it's just sore. Eventually, for no reason whatsoever, the condition gradually goes and I am left with skin in pristine condition. I have had loads of tests – one, a patch on my back to see if I am allergic to anything. But that proved negative.
Avatar n tn He said that I have Dyshydrosis Hand Eczema and he prescribed me what he says is an intense treatment to try to heel my fingers, here is his treatment plan: Apply Desonide lotion during the day Apply Clobetasol cream .05% at bedtime He put me on a Z-Pac antibiotic 250mg DHS clear shampoo Aveeno eczema control body wash We talked a lot about what is causing this. My brother told me today he gets a very similar condition but on his feet.
1373769 tn?1278607210 Just to simply rub the skin on my own arm at times is very painful to the touch. It can last from a very short time like an hr or so and at other times goes on for a day or two. Then not happen again for a couple months. I actually avoid the sun mostly due to the heat causing the MS to drain me very quickly of the energy that I may have stored up.
Avatar n tn My skin on my palms is blotchy ( pink, and white) also and the ony way I can supress the pain is to rub them together or scratch them. When I touch something my finger tips feel rough, I can still have feeling in all my finger tips however they just dont seem right. Do you have any idea why this is and What I can do to treat this??
Avatar n tn I don'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!?
Avatar f tn Upon reflection, I think it may have been a canker sore, not a cold sore, and my understanding is that cold sores aren't common inside the mouth. In any case, it went away within 12 hours, and now it's like a clear dark dot, as if I had a pencil jab there. It's been this way for most of the intervening two weeks, with no pain, itching, nothing. I'm posting because I'm still wondering what it was. If it was a canker sore, why did it react to the Famvir?
Avatar n tn The skin on the lid is dry, but somewhat close to normal. I have problems under my eyes and the skin is getting worse, dry and causing deep wrinkles. Concealer to cover the redness only makes me look 10 years older! If anyone can recommend anything, please let me know. I'm pretty desperate and can't handle this anymore. I know it's only been 3 weeks, but it's horrible!! Thanks....
