I have a bacon grease burn on the back of my hand and the inside of my wrist, it happened 2 days ago and there're blisters, should I pop them??

No, don't pop them!: If the area involved totals over 2sq inches, you should see a doctor for possible antibiotic to avoid infection. Antibiotic ointments are also OTC — ask pharmacist. Don't bind it or rub — use loose clean gauze to protect. If it's looking worse than it did, get to Urgent Care, doctor or ER. Hands are too useful to fool around with. ...Read more

See Plastic surgeon: Grease burns are usually deep. These burns are best treated by prescription topical antibiotic medication. See your primary care or your local plastic surgeon.

I get hives whenever I eat fried foods or cold cuts or bacon.  I take fexofenidene and montalukest daily.  Is there anything else I can do?

As Henny Youngman...: As Henny Youngman would say, don't eat fried foods or cold cuts or bacon. I'm not being glib; if you know those foods are the cause, you'll just have to avoid them. If that's unacceptable, an allergist may be able to identify a specific food additive common to those foods that is triggering your hives. Every hives sufferer has different triggers, unfortunately. ...Read more

If I cook 5 pounds of bacon a day . At work. Will that age my skin standing over the grill?

If I cook 5 pounds of bacon a day . At work. Will that age my skin standing over the grill?

We age every day: Grilling bacon for a whole year will age one's skin a whole year. Whether one's skin will look MORE than a year older in that time is anyone's guess. The toxins in vaporized food and smoke have a small effect compared to smoking tobacco or other substances. Hopefully, the grill's exhaust vent powerfully sucks the toxins away. For most people, sunshine damages skin more than grilling will. ...Read more

About three years ago I ate some raw bacon. I recently learned this can cause trichonella. What should I do? Am I going to die?

Don't think bacon: From 3 years ago will cause death Per Mayo "If you have a mild case of trichinosis with no symptoms, you might not need medical attention. If you notice gastrointestinal problems or muscle pain and swelling about a week after eating pork or wild-animal meat, talk to your doctor."

I burned myself with hot bacon grease about 2 months ago, now I have small bumps around the area. How do I get those off? What are those bumps?

Hard to tell: Without seeing them. They could be thickened areas of scar, in which case they should improve with time. They may be milia (whiteheads) caused by skin cells trapped beneath the surface, in which case they may be improved with use of a bufpuf pad. If they don't go away or get worse, see your doctor. ...Read more

Iv eaten smoked bacon that was microwaved less than half the right microwaving time would worms come from eating it, and should I take peptobismol?

Iv eaten smoked bacon that was microwaved less than half the right microwaving time would worms come from eating it, and should I take peptobismol?

No problem: There are no worms in commercially produced pork in the US. That problem (trichinosis) has been gone for more than 50 years. You could eat bacon raw (or a raw pork chop) without risk. If you have an upset stomach, PeptoBismol or another antacid might help, but wouldn't make any difference in risk of trichinosis or other worms. ...Read more
