My mother is suffering from herpes zoster. We approached Dr. M. Prasad as he was the nearest doctor to our house. He treated my mother with 5 days injection as well as medicine course. But she still has pain in her face on the left side. We would like you to examine her situation as we came to know that herpes can cause blindness and deafness. For that, we would like to see you buy we do not know where your clinic is.

My 80 year old father has a chronic skin condition - a rash which flares up every evening.....causing a great deal of pain. Heis being treated for eczma but we think it may be something linked to nervous system. Last week he described the pain over both knees as like being covered in bees. He has had bypass surgery so takes some medication. He is well in himself except for this rash which is causing a lot of distress. He had shingles several years ago so I thought it might be related. We are looking for a diagnosis so he can start to get better. Thankyou

hi I have a question, my husband has a rash on the back of his neck that just started out real small... he thought it was a pimple at 1st, he scratched it and he said it kinda stung a little and was sore right at 1st, well he didnt think much of it then the following day he ended up getting more spots and he said that they oozed out with stuff when he went to scratch them or rub them.. hes never had this before... we are wondering if it could be shingles or possibly something else that might be contagious.. nobody else has this in our household except for him... we arent sure what it is

I am curious what this is. I think it s a pimple (or a few of them), but it s in an odd spot on the side of my rib cage (near where my bra would be on the side). Ignore the scar - it s from a childhood heart surgery.
