Hi, I have had a hard lump on my inner thigh for about 6 months if not longer now, it has always been about the size of a small pea untill a couple of days when I woke up and it was slightly swollen and sore. I ve just checked it again and it s now about the size of a grape and is getting sorer. I went to the doctors about it ages ago and they couldn t really diagnose anything and said to go back if it changes. I m booking an appointment tomorrow but I m sick with worry and could really do with some sleep tonight.... Could you help me please? I m a 20 year old male.

Hi, I have had UTI like symptoms for 5 years. I have had many, many cultures - all neg. I have also had a bladder ultrasound - again normal, I have tried creams for dermatitis etc. I just read recently that Latent TB can show symptoms of a UTI - 5 years ago - when symptoms first appeared, I was working in an orphanage in Central Asia (ex-soviet state) when drug resistant TB was rife and visiting children regularly in a TB hospital, so I have definitely been exposed. I had terrible pneumonia last year which took a long time to diagnose, and for a while they suspected TB but it didn t show up in my lungs. Could it still possible cause for my UTI - is it worth getting checked?

I am a female and am 12 years old and i have eczema(dermatitis). I have had these small red bumps and a rash on my left inner thigh. It really hurts when I walk. I have looked up a lot of info and some say it can be due to eczema. I usually always have rashes. I have had this rash with small red bumps for one week going on two weeks. I am super scared and nobody knows. I have put a warm washcloth with warm water on it for about a half hour and it just goes down a bit then starts again. I am not in any sexual incourse and I am super scared. Please help me. I dont know if it can get worse. Please.

I have a red rash on my chest. I was wondering if it could have been caused by red rice yeast. I had been taking one tablet until about two weeks ago, my gp suggested I up the dosage to two, then eventually three. I have not changed laundry detergent; in fact, I use the dye-free detergent. Could it be caused by a virus? Or is it dermatitis? I did have a rash on my hand this past spring which I thought was caused by contact with my horses hay. I was careful to use gloves and it went away. It seems to me I remember reading that yeast causes rashes. Thank you.
