When I wipe, it burns a little just a little bit after. Why is that? There's no signs of yeast, discharge clear/normal. Why am I experiencing dryness?

Few possibilities : Typically the tip of the penis is sensitive and you could either have some skin irritation or even mild urethritis- which is a non specific inflammation. Using aquapor could be helpful- can get from CVS. Additionally a urinalysis could be helpful to see if you do have a mild infection - need to consider your sexual history as well. Lastly the tissue you are using could be an irritant. See your doc ...Read more

I think I cut the inside of my vagina, it feels like a cut would. It burns a bit when I pee,and it feels like a cut would in texture,what should I do?

Depends: If you think there is even a remote possibility of a sexually transmitted infection, then get a gyn exam. This could be a symptom of a herpes, even if you cannot see a sore. It could be a small cut also, in which case it should heal fine in a few days, however I would still recommend having an exam to be on the safe side. Sometimes localized yeast infections can also burn on contact with urine. ...Read more

My finger is swollen, like it has a bump, and it's itchy but when I scratch it it burns a lot. I see 2 tiny red dots on it. Did I get a spider bite?

I think so: Well...its hard to tell right now. Spider bites are extremely painful. The spider venue thats injected causes necrosis (kills cells causing them to look black). It can itch..but pain is the number one symptom. Yes it can be red as well. The 2 tiny dots may be the fang injection points. ...Read more

Periosteal hematoma: This is the fancy name for a bruise of the bone itself, where blood accumulates between the bone and the tissue which lines the outside (the periosteum). Ice for 48 hours, followed by heat may help it resolve, and Ibuprofen after 24 hours will probably be more useful than hydrocodone (200-400 mg three to four times a day with food or milk). If it persists longer, you may have a hairline fracture. ...Read more

What does a brown recluse spider bite look like I have a bite on index finger and the skin is coming off. It burns and itches, has little ant bite type bumps

A : A brown recluse bite can have different appearances. There can be almost no signs of the bite or there can be a dark escar (scab) with surrounding white tissue (that is dead). In some cases the brown recluse's bite can be necrotoxic and cause very severe damage. It can large amounts of skin to die and can eat into the muscle as well. This type of reaction is usually associated with fever, muscle and joint pain and feeling very ill. I can not diagnose the cause of your symptoms. Brown recluses are actually very little and non-descript looking. If your skin is sloughing off your finger - do recommend that this be medically evaluated. ...Read more
