If he has had a recent trauma to that area, then this is known a hyperalgesia and hyperesthesia. Which essentially means that the cutaneous nerves responsible for the sensations of heat and cold are irritated and inflamed and this should settle down within the next 2 to 4 days.

Hope this helps.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
