Im 22, about 67kg, 179cm and have been struggling with lower back pain for a few days. Bad backs tend to run through the generations too. I have full range of movement but an aching pain which in certain positions can be agony, I have become irregular going the toilet whilst also there is a red mark on the lower back slightly to the left with a red spot. Any help on this?

My son is 18 months old. This very morning I took my son in for his routine check up. I asked his doctor, the very same who he has been seeing since birth, about a few red spots that showed up on his tummy, diaper area, and back. She really had nothing to say about it. So I wasn t concerned. Now it is nightime and I just put him to sleep. He doesn t have fever. Has not had any fever at all the past week or so. But while he was in the bath tub right before bedtime, I noticed even more red spots on his back. No where else. Just more on the back. They do no seem to bother him. He has not had a fever or shown any other signs of illness. What could these dots possibly be? They are small red spots, not raised bumps.

I have a flat red rash mostly on my buttocks, one spot on my lower back, and a few on my upper front thighs they don t itch until I scratch them then they quit as soon as I leave them alone. I took a bath and as soon as they touched the water they began to itch but the itching quit very quickly. I wouldn t be surprised if they were bug bites, except they don t itch or appear as any other bug bites I ve had in the past

Hello. I recently had a CT bc I felt something on my liver. It turned out to be a hemangioma. In the report it also mentions a subcentimeter parenchymal cyst in my right kidney. No one even mentioned it. Does that mean it isnĀ“t important_ I have never had a kidney cyst before.
