A 16-year-old female asked:

Shin splints: These are a form of muscle strain where calf muscles connect to the shin (tibial bone). Like tendonitis, it can take time to heal when it gets started (usually related to excess activity when you're just getting started without warming up adequately). Alternating ice/heat, ibuprofen, stretching before work-outs will gradually heal this over 2-3 weeks. Good shoes will help too!
A 23-year-old female asked:

Vaginal sores: Usually herpes has associated burning pain with shallow ulcers--depressions or pits in the skin (often in crops), while a clogged gland is usually isolated, swollen and more tender to touch. Drainage and anti-biotics will relieve this while only time and anti-viral medication will help with herpes.
A 21-year-old female asked:

Lump: A very specific description, with mainly skin cysts (clogged glands or ?acne at your age) occurring in this location. Is it mobile with the skin, or more fixed to the bone (the latter would be less common)? Lymph nodes are unusual in the middle of the chest as well. Bone pain should be localized to the lump, or ..other chest wall problem. Seek a consult with your MD for minor surgical consult.
