Hello, I have a concern about my husband. He s been getting mysterious pain in the left side of his neck , about the same place as the arteries go up to the brain. It feels like a needle going through and the skin goes red. It last maybe 10 minutes at a time and goes away. It comes and goes during the day for the past few days.

Thank you for your question.

The symptoms you have described are similar to hives. This may be a form of allergy. I would suggest consulting a dermatologist.

Wish you the best.
