I have been getting clusters of two or three raised bumps on my arm and shoulders they do not pop and are not red inflamed the spots are too big t be kp and I have had folliculitis before and know that this is not it any suggestions on what it could be ?

Keratosis pilaris: Keratosis pilaris comes in a variety of sizes, so unless the bumps are huge, it could still be kp. There are also various kinds of folliculitis, so you can't rule that out either. There are other, more esoteric possibilities, but you will have to be examined directly by a dermatologist to know for sure. ...Read more

My one year old son is missing his big toe nail and his other big t oe only has half a nail he has ple nty of calcium ?

My one year old son is missing his big toe nail and his other big t oe only has half a nail he has ple nty of calcium ?

Missing toenails: Calcium intake has nothing to do with finger or toe nails. Loss of toenails usually comes from either trauma or infection. Some children rip their nails off, but usually not at age 1. I would take him in to see his doctor to determine what is the cause of this problem. ...Read more

It : It sounds like you have more than one problem between the nails growing the way they do, the "sausage" toes, and ingrown toenails. It's impossible for me to give you a diagnosis over the internet, but i would recommend seeing a podiatrist. There might be a connection between how your toenails are growing and the fact that your toes are swollen. If there is a circulatory issue, that could affect the normal growing of your toenails. Best thing is to get checked out. ...Read more

Knee effusion : Knee effusions can be from inflammatory arthritis, trauma w/who meniscus tears, hemarthrosis but what is surprising to me is that you have this for 10 years!. See a rheumatologist that can aspirate your fluid and analysis can show for example inflammation. Also blood work can ruled out Lyme disease for example, do it now since large amount of fluid is not normal. ...Read more

I have so many neck issues that I need an honest opinion about but this question box isn't big enough. Help?

No help here. Sorry.: In the lower right corner of the box that contains your name, picture, profile and question, is a little Answer Guidelines link that you can't see. If I click it, I read, "Refrain from any personal diagnosis, prescription or medical advice." There is no substitute for a hands-on assessment by a live doctor in a brick-&-mortar office. Sorry, HealthTap is not the source for the answers you seek. ...Read more

I've heard having big muscles aren't necessarily a good thing. What could happen?

I've heard having big muscles aren't necessarily a good thing. What could happen?

Not true!: If you do not exercise properly, you can limit range of motion of your joints. But strength is good. Muscle also increases your metabolic rate. Take a look at gymnasts-very large muscles with extreme mobility and flexibility. Gaining muscle should not be a "fetish." i was a competitive weightlifter. I am not enamoured with "bodybuilders.". ...Read more

I noticed both of my big toenails aren't as clear as the others. How can I get them back to normal? What causes this?

I noticed both of my big toenails aren't as clear as the others. How can I get them back to normal? What causes this?

Depends on the cause: Some causes of nail discoloration include trauma due to tight shoes, infection, and medication side effects. You should try wearing shoes with a higher wider toe box. Get the feet inspected by a professional to determine the cause of the problem, as treatment varies depending on the diagnosis. ...Read more
