Burning pain in right back ribcage, plus skin rashes.

Hello, since two months ago I have had a slight burning pain occasionally in my right back, a little below the point of my shoulder blade, which felt as if it was burning from the inside outwards. The pain was always most bothersome at night, when I was lying on my back. I thought it was probably acid indigestion.

Five days ago now this pain suddenly returned at 5am, but more severe, enough so that I couldn't sleep. It feels as if acid was burning a hole in my back. The pain is quite localized, and continuous once it comes; lying on one side or the other doesn't make any difference, but it does improve from sitting or standing up. Then yesterday it came back, at 4am, and this time it didn't entirely disappear throughout the day. It was accompanied by a tender itchy feeling on my right upper abdomen, and a small red blotchy patch appeared (sore but not itchy). The blotchy lumps now have become fluid-filled blisters, and another blotchy patch is appearing on my lower ribcage. The burning back pain is continuously present, though slight during the day. My right armpit also feels slightly swollen.

I looked up my symptoms (I haven't yet seen a doctor) and it seemed to indicate gallbladder inflammation. Independently of this, I wonder if Arsenicum Album would fit these symptoms? As it is right -sided and indicated for burning pains and rashes. Or would something else be a better fit?

Thanks for reading, Ruth.

it will be better if you take Calcarea Carb instead. arsenic is restless, anxious, has fear of death and thirst less in chronic problems. you do not seem to fit the picture.

as a starting potency use 1m. take only one dose . avoid sour food and drink, they may interfere with medicine.
