Shingles? Bubbles Burn And Little Itchy

May 28, 2014

On Friday night I had a weird red raised spot on my chest right where the underwire of my bra hit. Saturday the spot was bigger and felt like it was made up of four tiny "bubbles". Sunday the "bubbles" all seemed to be united with a fifth one joined in the group. These bubbles burn and are a little itchy. The week prior I thought I was having an allergic reaction to my laundry soap because my sides felt strangely itchy and tingly.  I went to the Dr. on Monday and he diagnosed Shingles and put me on Valtrex. Tuesday(yesterday) I slept late, took a four hour nap and went to bed early. Today I am still beyond tired, but the rash has stopped spreading and remains a single "uni-bubble".   I have had herpes simplex outbreaks on/off for years but haven't had an outbreak in years......the "uni-bubble" looks very much like the H-simplex bubbles.....but I haven't had the intense pain everyone talks about(thankfully!)......

I'm wondering, do I really have Shingles?

Dermatology :: Eczema Or Fungus - Itchy Bubbles Up For 3 Years?

I've had the same condition on my left large toe for the past 3+ years now. It's extremely itchy, and bubbles up, and the skin then becomes soft and peels off, exposing the layers beneath. It then hardens again and repeats the process. There's a correlation with hotter weather and it becoming worse.

I've had it for a long time now but it's never spread anywhere else. However the list of creams I've been prescribed don't seem to do the job. I've included 3 very recent photographs. Anyone have any idea if this is an eczema or some type of fungus? The opinion seems to change doctor by doctor. Some say eczema, some say fungus!

Skin :: Getting Air Bubbles On The Palms And Fingers

For some reasons I am getting little air bubbles in my hands, on the palms. My skin is not dry and sometimes it peels off. No matter what I've tried, I can't get rid of the bubbles. I`ve tried cream and different soaps, but nothing is working. And just recently it`s starting on my fingers. What`s going on, and how can I get rid of it?

Coeliac Disease :: Gluten Intolerance With Tummy Bubbles

my leg is five and half years old and for as long as I can remember she has had bowel trouble. It started off as constipation which the GP prescribed movicol for. She was weaned off if this and over time her symptoms have worsened. She suffers from terrible bloating, wind and constipation. She complains of "tummy bubbles" I have asked what she means by this and says either her tummy hurts or she thinks she needs to go to the toilet. We are at a loss as to what could be causing this?

Shingles From Someone With Shingles - Spread?

Hello! I am a 34 year old woman who has just been diagnosed with shingles. I have had them for about a week and am quite uncomfortable, but not miserable. I have had some stomach pains for a few days that I believe are associated.

One problem I have is in all the information on the net and from doctors they stress the point "you can NOT get shingles from someone with shingles"... well, I disagree. My mother is a non-hodgkin's lymphoma patient who was diagnosed with shingles about two weeks ago. I live by her and help her and I find it hard to believe my shingles didn't come from being exposed to her!

Just wanted to let others know.

Sexual Health :: STD Or Razor Burn

So I've had some itching for a few months, and back in March I was tested negative for STD's. I've noticed some itching again, some days worse than others and some days not at all, and on Tuesday I grabbed a mirror and saw these bumps and just about had a cow. Ive had 2 partners since March and neither of them have ever had an STD. Does this look like something I should be concerned about or is it just sensitive skin/ razor burn??? They're not painful whatsoever and I've never felt burning as if they had cracked open.

Red Bumps On Vagina - Razor Burn Or Herpes?

Alright so I went to the dr two weeks previous to having sex with a new partner and I was clean. I had pretty rough sex with this new partner a week ago and the lubrication wasn't very effective it was pretty painful. then developed a chest cold a few days later which I thought was normal because everyone in my family had been sick at the time. Well a day or two ago (a week after intercourse)I noticed bumps near my vagina. Now I shave so I figured it to be razor bumps. But I also noticed something that looked like a tear at the entrance to my vagina and I assumed it to be from the rough intercourse. At any rate it's probably too soon to tell but there's only three small red bumps and no head to them. They aren't painful to touch but very itchy. The tear is both itchy and slightly painful. I'm headed to the doctor in the next few days because I'm simply freaking out, but if anyone could take a look and give me some advice for ease of mind that would be great.

Orlistat :: Burn Fat Exercise -make Your Heart Rate Up And Down

Theres a few posts so I thought id share what ive learnt from gym instructors and PT sessions

if you consistently do cardio at the same pace you just burn carbs and sugar leaving you drained and not burning fat.

you need to burn fat - take,your heart rate up and down. If you cant manage jogging and sprinting then slow walk 3 mph, fast walk 5/6mph. This is commonly known as HIIT or interval training.

for 10x more fat burning there is metabolic training using weights. Im now just moving on to this.

There's loads you can do at home if confidence or finances don't allow you to go to a gym. Last june I was so unfit I struggled to walk my dogs. Im now jogging with them. I did forgo a holiday to pay for PT though but best thing I did. I know go to gym a good 5/6 times a wk and love it.

and remember muscle doesn't weigh more than fat. 1lb of muscle is the same as 1lb of fat.

Herpes :: Would Urethral/Meatus HSV Blisters Burn When Urinating?

I have a small bump on my Meatus/outside tip of the urethra. It secretes a very, very small amount of clear fluid when I press on it. Doesn't hurt much (only when I squeeze it hard)... and when I urinate there is no pain.

Does this sound like a HSV blister or not?

Corneal Burn? Due To Camera Flash - Blurred Vision

A year and three months ago I was taking pictures with my camera, and using an on camera flash. The brightness of the light did not bother me while I was taking pictures, or I would have lowered it. A few minutes later I started to get pain in my right eye, and then burning, soreness, throbbing, and then my eye began feeling like a rock. My eye felt this way for months. I did get to an optician a week or so later, and she checked my eye and said that it was just severe dry eye. She told me that she checked the surface, back and around my eye, but did not see anything. I have been to her three times since. At my last exam a month ago I was told my left eye got worse, but my right eye was eye still feels like a rock on most days, but it's also very sore and like I have something burning the inner corner. I am sensitive to bright light, and if I cover my left eye I can see that my right eye seems to be less clear overall. Everything seems darker, colors aren't as bright, and I can barely see any detail in my eye right. My left eye seems fine, and I can see clear. I was told to use eye drops daily. I have been for over a year. The only ones that work and didn't aggravate my eyes are the Systane gel drops. However, even they do not seem to be working anymore. At this point I am very scared, and I am trying to find an ophthalmologist under my insurance. I figure a real MD might know more. Anyone ever experience this or something similar. I feel like my vision has gotten so much worse in just a year, and the thought of it getting even worse so fast is horrifying.
