Brief Answer:
I will want you to monitor only at this time!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have reviewed your information fully. This is suggestive of a possible peripheral nerve problem. Inmost cases, with age, these are transient and disappear altogether. If they however become persistent and worrisome, we will prescribe medications to address this. For now, medications are not strongly warranted.

In all, peripheral neuropathy which is not uncommon with age. Often transient and disappears. Treatment only indicated if it interferes with daily activities or becomes bothersome.

I hope this guides and helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.

I have a dear friend whom woke up one morning with a blackened/ red eye lid. There was a slight swelling but no tingle sensation/ numbness. The discoloration goes over her upper eye lid to almost her nose . She did not receive any trauma to the eye. There is no vision problems, and no other apparent symptoms? I am worried that this could be a secondary condition? I have researched this , and I have come up with no ideas. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance!

Doctor, I am an 18 year old male, I recently came back from a week in Cuba, and about halfway during my stay I started getting minor mouth sores (canker) and a slight tingling/irritation of the skin on the outside of my cheek of the responding side of the sores, very small bumps aswell leading from my lip/mustache line to my chin, slight redness, very small bumps (not visible, you have to feel) and slight dryness of skin, my oral hygiene is very good. I live in Vancouver and it is very cold. my doctor has prescribed me Cortate ointment for the skin on my cheek, but it does not seen to be helping.
