Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
I will try to help you. How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Any skin change? If so, can you attach the photos here? On a scale of 0-10, what is it with 0 being no pain and 10 being the strongest pain? What is it like? Does anything make it better or worse? Did you have any tests? Is it consistent? Is it getting worse? Any other symptoms? Are you aware of anything which might have triggered it? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any other medications including over-the-counter pills and herbs? Any family medical history?
Did you have a skin biopsy?
A blood test?
