Generally the important point they look for is that the affected area is physically uncontrollable by a person. Some can be brought on by stress and many other factors. Only a doctor would underst...

The area where the cold sore is might have been irritated or inflamed. It might be best to leave the area alone for a while and if it doesn't improve see your doctor as it may have become infected. I had the same issue with a minor cut on my hand that became infected. My doctor explained that reapplying the same topical cream as a person can never ...

Perhaps take the MRI finding to another neurologist who is more of a specialist in the field. Then explain your concerns and they might be able to look for other potential causes.

You may be allergic to the chapstick if it worsens it or irritates it. However if the condition has lasted a year it would be worth seeing a dermatologist about that. They could then tell you what medication or over the counter treatment would be helpful after they diagnose the specific concern. Also think back if there was anything that may have changed t...

If this keeps increasing it probably would be worthwhile to have a doctor or neurologist do an EEG to rule out the potential of a seizure disorder. Also they'd need to see if he is just thinking or has a drop or loss in consciousness. Then they could make an appropriate determination within their clinical discretion as regards follow up.

I have the same concern and my psychiatrist has told me its called dysphoria. It is something to keep track of because in some people it can lead to suicidal ideations. Any sudden shifts in mood, especially accompanied by a change in thought patterns can be of concern. These are always worth bringing up to a psychiatrist right away. For any mood concerns i...
