HI! I have had sensitive...
HI! I have had sensitive skin for the past five days on my thigh. It came on around the same time as the cold, although i am over that now. I also fell a few days before that and skinned my knee (same leg). I do not have a bruise or rash or anything. I live in a rural community in a different country and they will just give me an antibiotic. I would like to know what possibilities it could be and what i can do about it.

What you're describing sounds like a neuropathy which is quite common after a viral infection and will likely resolve on its own.

What Customers are Saying:

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

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.
