Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

any rash in that area?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

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 think this is the onset of shingles.
