I got a tattoo a month ago well it started

I got a tattoo a month ago well it started with being red at top part of the certain part of my tattoo it itches but now painful not itchy but looks like bumps or pimples spreading around. I think it might be shingles. I have been stressed more than usual and I was exposed to a friend that had shingles

Hi. I got a tattoo a couple of months ago and it became infected. I went to urgent care where they prescribed some antibiotics. I finished the medication like I was supposed to, the redness has gone away. It looked like it was starting to heal but at night it itches real bad and burns like it is on fire. For the last few weeks it has been swelling so I have been trying to have it elevated as much as possible. Now my other foot is swelling more than the original one. Is this cause to be concerned about?

I m 22, a yr ago I had an ekg everything was fine, I didn t experience abnormal heartbeat. 4-5 months ago I start getting rapid heartbeat, usually when I wake up from my sleep, I would feel it thumping I get weak. I was at my new doctors office, they gave me an ekg she said my heart was beating extremely fast (I was very relaxed). They checked my blood pressure 3 times, it was high changes dramatically within minutes.. She prescribed me metotrolol 25mg, but I notice that I was actually experiencing rapid heartbeat more often the thumping was stronger than before I started the medication, I really can almost hear it.. I m either just sitting around doing completely nothing it would suddenly just go for about 2minutes just slow down within minutes it would happen again.. I was on metotrolol for 3wks and I just stopped 2days ago because it felt like it made it worse. I will find another doctor to go to, but does anyone have an idea what is causing it? I m changing doctors because they re not really professional so I don t feel that I can trust them with my health. I am chinese my doc is american chinese, yet her staffs aren t so I got a phone one time where they asked me to go by to pick up my blood test THING , which she really meant blood test report, also I did not understand anything she had said. So just to be safe, I rather try a different doctor. I ve only seen her once so it should be fine. Thanks for the info!
