Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
The blisters on your throat was granular pharyngitis, those are the enlarged lymphoid follicles. Cold sore on the tongue and gums could be canker sores. You need to take multivitamins along with the antibiotics, drink plenty of water. You will be alright, any more doubts you are welcome.

About a week ago, my left wisdom tooth was inflamed and my gums were swollen. During the week, I noticed the lymph node on the left side of my neck was a bit swollen. Today, the swelling is gone and my jaw no longer hurts. Although about two days ago, I noticed the skin around my left hip bone was tender, like I had been hit or had pulled a muscle. And today, I noticed my left inguinal lymph node was swollen and tender, and I also have a couple small patches of red bumps on my upper left thigh. The bumps don t itch but the area around the lymph node is tender. And on top of it all, related or not, I have had some chest congestion, cold like symptoms the past week.

My 80 year old father has a chronic skin condition - a rash which flares up every evening.....causing a great deal of pain. Heis being treated for eczma but we think it may be something linked to nervous system. Last week he described the pain over both knees as like being covered in bees. He has had bypass surgery so takes some medication. He is well in himself except for this rash which is causing a lot of distress. He had shingles several years ago so I thought it might be related. We are looking for a diagnosis so he can start to get better. Thankyou

hi I have a question, my husband has a rash on the back of his neck that just started out real small... he thought it was a pimple at 1st, he scratched it and he said it kinda stung a little and was sore right at 1st, well he didnt think much of it then the following day he ended up getting more spots and he said that they oozed out with stuff when he went to scratch them or rub them.. hes never had this before... we are wondering if it could be shingles or possibly something else that might be contagious.. nobody else has this in our household except for him... we arent sure what it is

could you tell me your input please,,, thanks!
