Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

You probably have a fungal infection of nails and also skin of armpit.Fungal infection persistent for longer duration can give a chance for bacteria to invade the skin and so the infection worsens.I advise you to visit your Dermatologist and get examined and evaluated for this.A topical cream of antifungal and steroid can be prescribed by your Doctor if it is an infection.

There could be chances that you are allergic to few objects and you need to identify them.

Take care.

I have a small lymph node in the baseline of neck on the left side. It is small until I get my hair colored. Once this happens, it swells really big and my scalp itches and flakes terribly. This goes on for a couple of days. Is this more than likely due to an allergy from the hair dye?

I had a legion on my face and after a month it began to cause me chest pain that increased as the sore grew. I was concerned about the chest pain and its size so i went to a clinic. i thought it was a spider bite. he said it clearly wasn t so gave me an ointment for acne. he told me the sore had absolutely nothing to do with my chest pain. I took the ointment for 3 weeks and the chest pain and sore grew. By then i knew it was causing me pain the got more severe. I went to the hospital 3 weeks later and he also told my it wasn t causing chest pain. he gave me a antibiotic for infection and when i was a week into the bottle a pain ripped through my chest which didn t last just one second, but about 3 or 4. When it happened i thought i was having a heart attack. i went home and lanced it myself, which they didn t offer to do. it grew outward in a circle and was slightly smaller than a quarter. not far above the skin, it grew deep into my cheek. it took a week to fight the infection out. the pain subsided from a 8 and some intense 10 to about a 3 with occasional 10 stabbings. its comes and goes throughout the day. I didn t get blood test for the sore from either doctor. now the sore is gone but over the past 2 years ive been to the doctor for my chest pain and they have taken blood samples related to checking my heart. i havent told them about that infection because those first 2 doctors said the sore wasn t causing the pain, but how would they know since they never took a blood test. i know it caused the pain then and the aftermath now. Should i tell the heart doctor about the infection? Will he shrug me off like the other 2? and is it possible the infection is still there or gone but damaged something? what was the infection?
