Hi, thanks for posting your query.You should visit your doctor again.It the area is sore to touch some local skin condition is another possibility.If there is some pain while moving hand or pain while touching underlying inflammation like your doctor says swollen lymph node may be a possibility.Please visit your doctor.

Hi ive had a swolen lymph node under my chin and one under my right arm pit. I went to the doctor and they did all these blood tests on me and everything came back fine. They just suspected it to be my cold because I had one at the time, and a cut on my arm because of Cheerleading (I get beaten up a lot because of cheerleading practice). This was maybe a little more than a month ago. The one under my jawline has not gotten smaller, but the one under my right arm pit shrunk down to a pea size. Recently maybe 30 minutes ago I found another one in my left arm pit. Can somebody tell me what this could possibly be from? Help me. btw im 15

About a year ago, I started seeing white spots on my legs...they have multiplied rapidly. The dermatologist diagnosed it as Vitiligo. I am currently applying Pigmento ointment (charak). I was sent Vitiligo 30 sublingual pills from Biogetica, as well as Pigmento Tablets. I am a breast cancer survivor (2), and have had reconstruction. I am 68, and 5 4 tall...weigh 154 lbs. I am really scared to ingest the pills for fear that it will do liver damage. One of the pills contain Arsen Sulph . How harmful is this? Please advise. Thank you. Juliet

My 8 year old daughter is undergoing tests to diagnose asthma. it is well controlled. She has been complaining of chest discomfort. It started very sporadically at first (once per month), but now more regular. It happens when she`s just doing quiet things. She points to either her left or right side, it varies, located just under the breast, more towards the outer chest wall. She describes a pounding sensation and `swirling`....that`s her description. It doesn`t affect her breathing. Is it asthma related, or medication.....she`s on flovent and singulair. Thanks.
