Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
what triggers the pain?
any rash in that area?

Hi no rash or swelling although it's very sensertive to touch. I cannot think of anything that I have done differently to trigger this.

I would see your GP for anti virals
