Question: Hi I have blisters on my palatoglossal arch on the right side. I have tonsils that give me trouble. The blisters are painful and hurt my eye and ear also. Sometimes I get one on the top of my mouth. It's painful like I've got an ear ache. Is this normal or a problem?

Brief Answer:
herpes infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for your query. In my opinion, you might be having heroes zoster infection. This needs clinical evaluation and treatment. Empirically you can take diclofenac 50 m g tablet for pain. You need anti herpes medications. I would suggest you to consult with the doctor and get evaluated. Hope my answers have helped you. Thanks.

Brief Answer:
Not std.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for your query. I am sure it is not std. But looks like apthous ulcers over the tonsils. These occur due to stress or vitamin deficiency.Doesn't look much like herpes also. I would suggest you to consult with the doctor and get evaluated. Blood work and throat swab may be helpful. As i said before diclofenac 50 mg tablet +betadine gargling+mutivutamin supplemnts may be helpful to u. Antibiotics if throat swab shows any growth.Hope my answers have helped u. Thanks.

Some time ago I was diagnosed with Granuloma Annulare,prescribed some cream which did not help at all. I am getting more spots mainly on my right leg (ankle,knee and calf). They don t hurt, itch or anything like that. I am just concern that this is a symptom of some other underlying problem....white blood cells...Vitamin deficiency etc! Apart from that they are not a good look and worry that they are actually spreading. I read all that is written about the condition. Have you got any suggestion or test I should be having? Thank you.

Hi. Yesterday, my GP diagnosed me with celiac disease. My few symptoms seem to stem from vitamin deficiencies and anaemia through malabsorption i.e memory loss, numb tongue, pallor etc. Both my sister and father also have celiac disease, so I am no stranger to the hard-ships of a gluten-free diet. As a student, I have made an informed decision not to follow this treatment plan, with the knowledge that I would be increasing my risk of cancer, because I feel it would be impossible to fit around my lifestyle. I will be seeing my GP again next week for my follow-up appointment, and am planning to ask for a prescription for strong multivitamins, treatment for my anaemia, and digestive enzymes. In your opinion, how effective will this treatment plan be? Is my GP likely to agree to this? Thanks.

i am a thirty year old female recently i have been noticing a lot of hair loss, handfuls, especially when i shower, i startedd taking b vitamins over the counter and it hasn't really helped. my boyfriend started getting worried and he thinks it might be connected to some mood swings i've been having and thinks i have a vitamin deficiency. also he thinks i should mention that i've been having heartburn and yellow fatty stools and a history of pancreatic cancer in my family. i think he's overreacting but i've lost three members to cancer in the last five years so here i am... asking. what's up, Doc?
