It is a sprain: Finger traumatic sprain is common. Symptoms can be the result of an acute injury. The home remedies are: ice application, NSAIDs OTC every 6 hours and gentle movement of the finger. Resume your normal activities after 24-48 hours.

A 42-year-old member asked:

I have a recurrent, painful swelling at the opening of my vagina, but I don't think it is a yeast infection. What could this be?

Cyst: Swelling at the opening of the vagina can be a Bartholin's gland cyst. When the duct becomes blocked, fluid accumulates. They can frequently become infected and cause an abscess with tenderness. Treatment usually involves opening the cyst to allow drainage and can be performed in the office with local anesthetic. Consult your physician for further evaluation.

Cool compresses: A damp washcloth over your eyes a few times a day can be very effective in relieving the swelling due to allergic rhinitis. The nasal steroid sprays, (prescription) can also help the puffiness and dark circles. It is felt that these symptoms are due to nasal congestion and the associated congestion of the blood vessels around the eyes.
