I felt better but then my neck started to hurt it my head felt really tender to touch I went to bed I felt really hot around my neck I was sweating and my throat and head started to hurt and so did my back. I no longer have the warm feeling but my head still hurts I kind of feel out of it I m exhausted and my scalp is really really sensitive to touch can barely touch or brush my hair.

Infectious Diseases Specialist 's  Response
Welcome to HCM.

Your symptoms are suggestive of herpes zoster which is usually a viral infection and affects one particular dermatome i e part of skin supplied by single nerve. This is characterized by small blisters which are fluid filled and are present along the skin supplied by the affected nerve. I suggest you get an examination done by a GP nearby you to rule out herpes zoster. This disease is also associated with swelling of lymph nodes that drain that region.
