Customer Question
Have fibro. 67. Do...

Have fibro. 67. Do exercise. 4-5 days developed raised, very itchy sores on scalp that feel like fire. Hair hurts. Can you help?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

Have had fibro since the 80's. No head bumps until 4 to 5 days ago. 50mg. of Atarax doesn't help.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Fibro outbreaks are severe, related to IBS, depression. never anything like this pain.

Since we do not treat or necessarily diagnose on line, I am not sure what question you are asking??

Sores require a magnified exam, and they can be from any number of causes.

Can you attach a picture and we can go over possibilities

I will see me Derm on Monday. Thank you.
Dermatologist: DrRussMd, Internist/homeopath replied 8 months ago

We can go over a list of possibilities if you like.

This is called a differential diagnosis?

But I need to know if you have any skin problems, present or past.

And, if you have been exposed to anyone with sores.

Experts have nothing to do with charges. That would be justanswer customer service.

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
