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 daughter was complaining of feeling sick yesterday and was coughing and acting like she wanted to throw up. She threw up a little last night and is still coughing today. She complained that her face was itchy and I noticed she developed a small rash on her cheek near her eye.

My 16 month old has an infected crack on his thumb from thumb sucking. It was red and swollen and had small rashy bumps around it. He received a Rocephin shot in the Dr. office and is now on Keflex for 10 days, this is day 3. The same time this infection appeared, he developed a rash on his feet and legs: red, raised bumps, that do not appear to be bothering him. The rash has now spread to his arms, hands, and face as well. He has also started to have freqent explosive diarrhea that has absolutely NO odor. Could all this be related to the infection? No fever, and the rash started prior to any antibiotic use.

Hi, doctor My daughter had her 5 year old vaccination on the 10 of January , after a couple of weeks I noticed a red rash on her legs and then her arms and the stomach, basically it spread all over her body except her face. I then took her to a pharmacist and he gave me a liquid form cortazan, medicine name is pre lone , it then started going away and as soon as she was running around and jumping up and down the jungle gyms did the rash come back really aggresively and now on her face it was very red, we then took her to a doctor and he told me she has a allergic reaction to something, but she has never had this before, I never changed her diet or the washing powder, it has been ever since the vaccination. The rash then started going away since giving her the medicine. But 3days now the rash has come back, it goes away and comes back and sometimes worse then the other times, but not as red, but itchy. Please help
