Punctured head with sharp object 3days ago., broke skin, swelling gone down. Peroxide. Still hurts to touch , move forehead. Is it infected?

Not infected: If the swelling gone down is not infected. This pain that you have is considered "normal" and physiologic and is associated with an inflammatory response that is part of the healing process. In normal pain, the pain usually disappears when healing is complete. Wait about 2 weeks or so. ...Read more

Slipped on ice, landed on right elbow. Xrays showed no big break. Its bruised, swellings down. Elbows very sensitive. Hairline or just bruised bone?

Slipped on ice, landed on right elbow. Xrays showed no big break. Its bruised, swellings down. Elbows very sensitive. Hairline or just bruised bone?

Sounds like a bru --: Ised elbow, as the xrays were negative. Protect the elbow, for a 10-14 days and if its only a bruised, it'll get better. If not improving or getting worse, get a another xray as in some cases initial xray may not show a fx, which was present. So protecting it for 2 weeks and re-xraying it would be the way to go. Good luck. ...Read more

May need Xray & exam: The more important thing is that you are checked for injuries such as an orbital fracture and for a septal hematoma. A nasal bone fracture is probably not itself very important. But fractures of the orbit can cause problems with eye movement, and septal hematomas can lead to a septal perforation which may cause a persistent sensation of nasal congestion. ...Read more

Ice it!: Accidents happen. The best, easiest & cheapest thing you can do is ice the area as soon as possible. Earlier is better, more often is better than less often. Acetaminophen, if you're otherwise healthy, can be used for pain relief (I tend to avoid ibuprofen). As you didn't lose consciousness or develop neurological symptoms (weakness, numbness) I surmise you will recover. Stay healthy &Good luck. ...Read more
