I have rash spreading through my body?

I am a healthy 33 year old with no known allergies or diseases and I workout daily. About 10-12 days ago, I felt itchy between my breasts and thought nothing of it. About 2 days later, I had a full blown rash all over my belly, back, shoulders, chest, and breasts. I went to immediate care the next day and all she did was take a look and prescribed me amoxicillian. 3 Days after that, the rash was not getting better and appeared to be spreading more so I got an appointment with a general doctor and he had no clue what it could be so he prescribed me Hydroxyzine, Methylpredinsolone, and Triamcinolone. Now here I am, 4 days later and still no improvement and appears to be spreading even more into my groin area. It is more itchy in the evenings. I am worried that it may be a systemic problem and I don’t like that these doctors are just trying to treat the systems instead of doing tests to find the underlying problem. Would you be able to help? The rash appears to be irregular shaped, varying in sizes, biggest spot is about the size of a quarter. It is light pink to light red in color. I have not been in contact with anything unusual, no new foods, no new soap or shampoo or lotion.

I’ve had rapid breast growth, want breast reduction surgery, what age should I typically get this surgery?

I am a 17 year old female who isn’t over weight and a healthy weight at that. Since I was in middle school I’ve had rapid breast growth considering my genes but I have overgrown all my relatives even the overweight ones. Because of this I’ve had tremendous back pain which I’ve seen a chiropractor which hasn’t helped much. So I’ve come to decide the choice of a breast reduction, I will be going from a DDD to a C. I was wondering what age I should typically get this surgery and if I do plan on getting pregnant will that effect the reduction. I also want to know if I can put the tissue from my breasts into be butt.

My mother underwent an aortic aneurysm repair, still has catheter, my aunt died of septic poisoning due to a similar event?

My mother is 71 years old. On November 16, 2016, she underwent an aortic aneurysm repair. Since the surgery she has not been able to urinate on her own & was discharged form the hospital with a foley catheter in place. She has been to a Urologist twice since discharge once on (11/22 & again on 11/28) in which both visits the catheter was removed, she was given the voiding test with a negative result & the catheter was replaced. They gave her a folow up appt on 12/22/16. This means she will have this catheter in place for a month before it is checked again. Is this normal? Will having a catheter for such a long period of time cause permanent damage? She is now experiencing pain & vomiting. What should I do at this point? My aunt died of septic poisoning due to a similar event & I am scared for my mother. Please give me some advise.

65 year old male with cervical spine (neck) pain, xrays say nothing wrong. We don’t believe that?

65 year old male with cervical spine (neck) pain. The pain is significant at times and will cause his shoulder and his hands tingle. He has also had injuries in the past to his lower back due to a military incident. At this time we are more interested in seeing someone who can help with neck pain. VA has x-rayed it and says there is nothing wrong. We don’t believe that. We might also need assistance with his lower back issues somewhere down the road. Please let me know what type of doctor to see?

My 11th rib pulled out of place, is there a medical procedure to put it back?

26yr old male – rib injury about 4 months ago in which the front part of my 11th rib pulled out of place.
I was told originally that after a couple months this would heal and come back in place with proper healing procedures. However 4 months later and it is still in same placement (out of place).
Is the 11th rib since its floating, once out of place always going to be out of place? Or is there a medical procedure to put it back in place?

Admitted to hospital with recurring stomach pains, would it warrant staying off work?

I am a 37 year old female who is overweight I have IBS and suffer from depression. I have just returned home from being admitted to hospital with recurring stomach pains, while in hospital I was given Morphine, Codeine and Paracetamol and diagnosed with a Peptic Ulcer. I have been sent home with Codeine and Paracetamol for the pain and Omperazole to reduce avid and help my stomach heal. This is the second episode of intense pain in a week, I was sent to the out of hours doctor 7 days ago with the same symptoms and given Omperazole to take, the pain stayed for a few days then started to ease up, however it flared up again a week later with intense pain and that’s when I was admitted to hospital. My stomach is still very sore and tender, so my question is would it warrant staying off work because I have a stomach ulcer? I work in a Special School with children with behavioural problems and it is very stressful and often quite physical.

NB I have previously had H. Pylori and had the irradiation treatment for that, when I was re-tested I tested negative.

Other medication I take regularly
Citalopram 30ml a day for depression (this has recently ((3weeks)) been increased from 20mg)
Gaviscon double action tablets as required
Transnemic Acid for heavy bleeding during menstruation.
