Customer Question
I have pain under...

I have pain under my left breast for a few days now. It gets worse at night. Now I have a rash that started. Its really itch.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

I have had it for the last 5 days now. Nothing seems to make it worse. It's a sharp pain and sometimes its burning pain. Also times its right. But when I go to bed its really uncomfortable.

Hi Dr. Su S, my name is***** am 49 yrs old. The rash is pink but the spots are red. It looks irritated. But really itchy. Also I have pain there , right now it's just a little sharp that comes and goes. Sometimes it burns and gets tight. But it gets worse at night and I can't sleep..

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
The picture looks like shingles.
Shingles can cause much pain.
I would advise to take an examination by doctor without delay.
Early start of antivirals would hasten recovery.
Acyclovir can be prescribed.
You can take Motrin for pain, meanwhile..
I hope this information will be helpful.

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.
