I have had an itchy rash on back, shoulders, bit on upper legs.

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

2weeks. Nothing makes it worse. I wondered if shingles, but if so..atypical.

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

I have allergies, but have not had antibiotics or change in mess or food.

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.

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.
