Welcome to Health care magic forum.

There are few things I would like to know.
1) When were you diagnosed as diabetic.
2) Are your blood sugar levels under control.
3) When were you injured.
4) Any other health problems.
5) To grade your pain between 1 - 10.
6) Any discoloration in that area.

Your rash is reducing but as pain is still persisting I would recommend you to be examined by a Surgeon to rule out any internal injuries.

I have 1 stone in my left kidney in the lower pole that is 10mm. and 1 stone in the left ureter that is 11mm. I have passed around 12 stones in the past 10 years with little or no problem. The largest was 6mm. Can I pass the one in my ureter? I have consulted 2 urologist. One told me to wait 3 weeks to see if it would pass The other told me my kidney would be dead in 4 weeks so I should not wait. He also said I less than a 20% chance of passing the stone in my ureter. Both doctors have good rating on line but I am not sold on either one. They lack compassion and both think I am a high risk patient because I am heavy and have diabetes. I am on Vic oden and Flomax. My body mass is 17 so the electro shock treatment will not work. They want to use a laser and go up through the bladder. I am thinking I should do it sooner than later. How evasive is the procedure and how much pain will I experience? Thank you

My husband has been lifting weights for several weeks now, but now he has shooting and burning pains in his shoulder and arm. He also has developed 2 spots on his arm about the size of a fifty cent piece with a rash with fluid filled blisters that itch. Do you have any clue what this might be?

My 15 month old daughter has developed a pimply rash that won t go away. It started over a month ago with just what looked like one large pimple amidst what looked like a simple rash. I applied Diprogenta (Betaethasone dipropionate Gentamicin sulfate) and although the rash disappeared overnight, the pimple stayed for over a month. Its redness would wane and then come back with the rash, but would look better after I applied the cream so I always put it down to food allergies. I eventually took her to the doctor after about a month, and was given a local balm (no idea what s in it, but it smells like burnt hair) and Metonate (Betamethosone) cream. The doc said it was Scabies, that I should apply the balm twice in the afternoon & evening, and the cream twice in the morning & late morning every day - this was 3 days ago. Since then, the pimple has multiplied, and she now has several of these angry, red pimples, along with the rash. There seems to be no itching, only these red pimples that now seem to multiply on a daily basis. Help!!

The middle of my forehead is swollen. I can press my fingers on it and the depression marks stay there for a bit which I assume is caused by fluid. I also have a rash from my neck area into my chest. My temp. is 98 degrees. What could be causing this? I also have a slight headache.

My son is two months old. He has been having problems with constipation, distended abdomen and partial rectal prolapse since he was born. He also has a red bumpy rash all over his face and head which seems to get worse after he eats. We had him on nutrimigen for three weeks which did not work and now we have him on similac alemintum which he has been on for about two weeks. He still has not improved at all. Do you think he could be lactose intolerant?
