User :   I have a bruise feeling on my thigh but nothing is there...wht could this be? Thanks so much :)
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   I am Dr.xxxx
User :   I have a few different things going on and I'd really like a few opinions...
User :   Hi Doctor
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   Please go ahead
User :   Firstly I am a single mother and always stressed, very optimistic but I think the stress may be taking it's toll on me. My issues are: raw burning redness near the outer edges of my eyes, a bruis feeling on my thigh but no bruising is there,
User :   i realize these are two seperate things...just needed a drs attention for 15 mins...my eyes are a bit red and puffy nd i'm thinking allergic reaction but the thigh scares me quite a bit
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Red and puffy eyes could be allergic or viral infection
Doctor :   Do you have discharge from the eyes?
User :   ok, nope, no discharge just a bit tender and raw...
User :   i'm thinking it's from a new makeup that i used and i will see what happens when i obviously no longer use it
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   You stop the make up
Doctor :   for time being
Doctor :   and see if it helps
User :   yes, i will
Doctor :   and wash the eyes thrice with fresh water
User :   ok
User :   can i use my face lotion still?
Doctor :   Avoid that too
Doctor :   Wash face with face wash
Doctor :   thrice a day
User :   alright
User :   thank you :)
User :   how about that bruise on my thigh that is invisible? That really has me scared...so many things are happening to me that I probably seem like a darn hypochondriac but I assure you I'm not.
Doctor :   Do you have pain in the thighs?
User :   just in one spot...about a half inch space feels badly bruised but nothing is there at all.
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   This is peculiar
Doctor :   I think this is all in your mind
Doctor :   What do you say?
User :   what? i just paid $10 to hear you say that...Holy crap, wow. No, it is certainly NOT all in my mind. it started the other day and feels like a bruise, period
Doctor :   What times do you feel it is a bruise
User :   it is most certainly not all in my head...
Doctor :   when you are sitting idle or working
User :   i feel it when i put my legs together...i touched it to check for a lump but i don't think i feel one...it hurts to touch it (like a bruise), can hurt when sitting or working both
Doctor :   What si the size of the area
User :   i said a half of an inch
Doctor :   Are you sure it is only on the thigh and no where else
User :   yes
Doctor :   Were you ever told if you have high blood sugar
User :   no
Doctor :   Do you have rash there atleast?
Doctor :   When was the last time you got it tested for blood sugar?
User :   i have only 2 mins left, can you just tell me some possibilities please, and no rash at all just very sore...not sure when i got tested probably a year ago...
Doctor :   Please get tested for Blood sugar
Doctor :   Apply CALAMINE lotion over it for three times
Doctor :   for two days
Doctor :   and check if it helps
Doctor :   The other possibilities are nerve involvement
User :   alright
Doctor :   Skin issues
