I have a small, superficial tear in crease of labia major&labia minor. No blood, no stich, just red and sore. Can I use lanolin to protect it? Heal at home?

You can: But zinc oxide (diaper stuff!) would protect you from the burn of urine, and promote healing as well. No need to see anyone. Sit in warm bath, dry off well, apply z.o. and a tissue. If it feels good, you can sit on a small comfortably warm heating pad to promote healing. ...Read more

Aside from lanolin, how can I treat a small nipple blister that I got from breastfeeding? Is dabbing alcohol safe? It's not a milk bleb.

Aside from lanolin, how can I treat a small nipple blister that I got from breastfeeding? Is dabbing alcohol safe? It's not a milk bleb.

No lanolin: I advised my nursing moms with sore nipples to clean gently with diaper wipe or moist washcloth and air dry after sessions. Then express small amount of your breast milk and massage in. Breast milk has lots of healing properties. Lanolin is an old fashioned advise and can cause the nipples to remain soft and easier to tear during nursing. ...Read more

What is the typical treatment for a muniscus tear is there surgery involved? What kind of pain medication and how long is recovery?

What is the typical treatment for a muniscus tear is there surgery involved? What kind of pain medication and how long is recovery?

Hello.: Hello. I don't know the extent of your injury. Often, arthroscopic surgery is done to the knee. This means that the surgery is done internally, without filleting the knee open. Without knowing more about your injury it is hard to say how long the recovery would be. If there is a small tear and that is removed, your recovery time could be four to six weeks. (this doesn't mean you need to lie in bed for four to six weeks; but you wouldn't want to be playing sports).
It the doctor only needed to remove loose bodies from the joint space, that recovery might take two to four weeks. It the meniscus requires repair, it could take four months or longer for a full recovery. Often patients are prescribed non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Narcotics are often prescribed post operatively to control pain. ...Read more

Piles are Hemorrhoid: S.They can be internal or external. The local irritation can be soothed with an OTC steroid cream, but we have to get your stools soft and more easily passable. This is done with daily fiber and a little extra water to your system. It will take a week or two to reregulate your system to have a daily, soft BM without the need to force. U can add daily Metamucil to your high fiber diet.
All the best. ...Read more
