Brief Answer:
Likely to be due to a hematoma...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The bluish black discoloration is likely to be a hematoma, probably due to an inadvertent injury. You needn't worry about this. It will resolve on its own.

Answered by Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar 7 hours later
Brief Answer:
Not indicative of HIV

Detailed Answer:
Hematoma is a blood clot under the skin. It is not a serious problem and will resolve on its own.

The rash could be due to an allergic reaction or a fungal infection. It is not indicative of HIV.

Brief Answer:
Nothing to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Both situations are not dangerous and you don't have to worry. Such kind of repeated doubts annd worrisome thoughts are indeed indicative of OCD. I would suggest that you consult a psychiatrist for further management of this problem.

Best wishes,

Can be due to different causes...

Night sweats can be due different causes like nocturnal panic attacks, fever, hypoglycemia, etc. If this has happened obly once, then you needn't give it much inportance. But if it is happening frequently, then you may need a detailed medical evaluation.

Answered by Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar 11 hours later
Brief Answer:
Not a serious problem... no HIV risk.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Hypoglycemia means low blood sugar.

Regarding the cut in your arm, another person accidentally touching it does not result in any serious problem. It does not result in transmission of HIV. So, there is no need to worry about this.

Recent questions on  Night sweats

I have recently taken a close friend of mine to the Emergency Room due to shortness of breath, and a pinch on the left side (lung/chest area) it is worse when taking a deep breath. He is also experiencing night sweats very badly, to the point where the bed is drenched. He also will just be sitting and he will break out in a sweat to the point where he is just dripping sweat. he is a little overweight but the ER didnt diagnosis him they basically said it was just something that happens and sent him home with pain medication. it has now been a little over a week and he still is experiencing the pain on the left side and is worse when he takes deep breaths, and is still sweating. do you have any idea what this could be? he went to a follow up and the doctor actually told him he didnt have a clue what could be wrong. said the chest x-ray looked fine and again gave him another prescription for pain medication. i feel as if it is something more serious, but now he is being stubborn and wont go back to the ER because he thinks the doctors are just passing it off as nothing serious. he is very uncomfertable and i just want to know if you have any idea what this could be so maybe i could pass the information onto him. thank you!

I have severe, constant itdhing of the skin. Have been unable to determine the cause. Nothing has been changed in diet, laundry detergents, etc. The itching seems worse during the night, causing night sweats, dampness of undershirt. Dermatologist has given me AMMONONIUM LACTATE CREAM, 12% to use twice daily and it seems to burn when applied.

caught an unknown cold/virus 14 days ago. initial onset skin irritation I had been sunbathing 30 min in afternoon sun. first three days of infection characterized by severe skin sensitivity. hot and cold flashes. night sweats. moments where i cant get warm at all. by day 5 I was feeling better so I went back to work. day 6 rebound. day 7 decided to sweat it out with some work. rebound. day 8 9 and 10 bedridden left shoulder from mid back to base of neck locked up in spasm. day 11 took anti inflammatories felt horrible got home started hiccups. all other symptoms still with me to a seemingly lesser degree but now i have persistent hiccups and going on day 3 with no relief. tried 100mg gabapentin, worked for an hour.

I have had a fever for the past 3 days along with a stiff neck and back, and loss of appitite. My fevers usually range between 101.5- 102.6 with the occasional 103- 103.6. Last night I had night sweats and have started to get an infrequent cough. I also have granuloma annulare and with my immune system down it has flaired up swelling one eye shut and leaving various lesions around my knuckles, feet, and face. The fever and aches are keeping me up a lot at night and herefore I am always tired. Unfortunetley I am between providers and my insurance will not kick in until the 18th so seeing a doctor would be quite expensive. I have been drinking a lot of water and occasionally taking some over the counter fever reducers. I do have a perscribtion for Amoxicillin but I am not sure if that will help me. Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
