Std (Definition)

This is a disease which can be transmitted from one person to another person through sexually related activities. This does not limit these activities to heterosexual intercourse, but encompasses all modalities of human-to-human sexual activity.

Can you get any std's eg hiv from urine?? Because I stood bare foot in urine in a toilet. If my feet are dry can you get hiv?

Can you get any std's eg hiv from urine?? Because I stood bare foot in urine in a toilet. If my feet are dry can you get hiv?

No: Fortunately, STD's are not transmitted that way in real life. Many people do wear shoes when they go to the bathroom, or waterproof flipflops (sandals) when in public showers... just to feel cleaner. ...Read more

Can dehydration cause ramdom pain/itch shaft of penis? No UTI/STD. Pain off and on for year. Ultrasound clean. Pain sometimes radiates to left foot?

Can dehydration cause ramdom pain/itch shaft of penis? No UTI/STD. Pain off and on for year. Ultrasound clean. Pain sometimes radiates to left foot?

Not an STD: Dehydration would not do this. STDs must be on your mind, by your topic tags. But it doesn't sound like any STD. Intermittent symptoms ("random", "off and on") often are psychological. Most penile skin problems are standard dermatology problems that can occur anywhere but happen to involve the penis. But best to see a doctor at a time you're having symptoms; better safe than sorry. Good luck! ...Read more

I have had all test done STD HIV pap. All came back normal. I bleed after sex. No he is not too big for me. My fingers tingled one day and toes.?

Also: Dr heller was quite correct in his response. Are your periods excessively heavy? Have you been bleeding elsewhere? Gums, skin, urine, stool? Are you having signs of anemia? Were your tests gyn only, or did you have a complete blood panel with coagulation profile? These areas should be investigated if further gyn testing turns up normal. ...Read more

A small black dot on the side of big toe nail near the bed. About the size of the letter "o". No pain. Now another appearing. What could it be?

Best to Check.: Whenever small black dots start appearing, it is best to have them looked at by an experienced physician. Often times, they are nothing more than blood trapped under the skin, but to remove all doubt, check it out. ...Read more

I have small red blood spots on side of big toe really painful and won't heal what are they and how can it be grates pls?

Need more informatio: The spots that you describe as blood spots need to be evaluated. I can't tell from your description as to whether the blood spots are tender themselves or are these dilated vessels, are there areas of loss of tissue, or are there neurologic issues involved, so we need more information. These could be an area of trauma depending on your shoe ...Read more

Small (not deep) puncture wound on side of big toe from clean piece of metal. Flushed it & antibio ointment. Last Tetanus in '09. Do I need another?

Small (not deep) puncture wound on side of big toe from clean piece of metal. Flushed it & antibio ointment. Last Tetanus in '09. Do I need another?

No: Your prior booster in 09 will have you covered. If you had dragged your open wound through a lot of soil and debris, and left it untended over a long period, it might be a benefit to some. Some advise landscapers and other outside workers to boost at 5 years if their work constantly exposes them to the tetanus spores. Your case does not rise to that level of concern. ...Read more

2 warts on the bottom+side of big toe. I have been going at it with a scalpel trying to get the roots out but they keep getting bigger. They hurt?

2 warts on the bottom+side of big toe. I have been going at it with a scalpel trying to get the roots out but they keep getting bigger. They hurt?

Do not scrape...: In your attempt to get to the root of the problem by scraping the virus away, you are actually spreading the virus. Warts thrive on the foot, in part, because of the increased moisture. You must dry or dehydrate the surrounding skin before debridement can work. There are various solutions that will do the job. Consult with a foot specialist for the various options. ...Read more

I have pain on the one side of big toe where it bends (between the phalanges)?

Pain: This could be a number of things. Bunion is not one of them but bone spurs, arthritis, bursitis, joint mouse are possibilities just to name a few. See your podiatrist for x rays and an evaluation. ...Read more

Itchy bump on side of big toe knuckle and on top of knuckle. Isn't painful, but very itchy and irritated when wear close-toed shoes.

Itchy bump on side of big toe knuckle and on top of knuckle. Isn't painful, but very itchy and irritated when wear close-toed shoes.

Try simple first.: I am not clear as to which knuckle you are describing. It is either the joint in the big toe itself or the joint where the big toe meets the main body of the foot. If the bump becomes worse while wearing a certain shoe style, then change the shoes. This may be the easiest solution. Possibly there is an underlying fungal infection. Try using a topical anti fungal. Have it examined by a doctor. ...Read more

The Big Squeeze..: The area you describe is very specific for the sensory branch of the deep peroneal nerve. The nerve also supplies the muscles that help with ankle and big toe movement through it's motor branch. You may need a neurologist to verify the existence of damage or entrapment of the deep peroneal nerve. The nerve runs from the area in question up to the area just outside the knee. ...Read more

Pain on the side of my big toe? Corn? Bunion?

Different: If the pain is from hard skin, you have a corn or callus. Basically they are the same tissue, with a corn being more focal and a callus, more diffuse. A bunion is the boney enlargement where the big toe and the metatarsal behind it meet. The big toe is usually leaning toward the lesser toes. If the boney lump is on the toe itself, this is an exostosis. See a podiatrist for discussion of treatment. ...Read more

For. A while now on my left foot the side where my big toe is it has been numb there's no pain?

Joplin's Neruoma: What you are describing is entrapment of the medial planter proper digital nerve which innervates your big toe. If you have a bunion on the side of your foot this is mostly what is causing it. You need to see a podiatrist. There are injections along with orthotics and shoe modification that can help with this condition. Later on it my cause a lot of burning sensation and discomfort if left alone. ...Read more

My big toe is turning in towards the 2nd toe but there is no bump on the side or pain. Is this a bunion?

My big toe is turning in towards the 2nd toe but there is no bump on the side or pain. Is this a bunion?

Hallux valgus: The term for the big toe leaning toward the second is hallux valgus. While this is often accompanied by a boney prominence on the inner aspect of the joint (bunion), it isn't mandatory. Early treatment can include splinting of the toe or orthotics. If pain arises, surgery is often recommended. ...Read more

My left big toe feels numb on the inside next to the second toe. I have sciatica on that side as well. Related?

My toenail is not thick but the skin on left big toe next to the nail on the right side is kind of hard and hurts very little?

My toenail is not thick but the skin on left big toe next to the nail on the right side is kind of hard and hurts very little?

Ingrown nail: Possibly. If there is tenderness on the side of the nail, and the skin on that side is thickening, the most likely cause is an ingrown toenail. I would see your Dr or a podiatrist to be sure, because they can become very painful if infected! Good luck! (Sometimes soaking the foot in warm Epson saltwater helps!) ...Read more

My left little toe and my right big toe as a sharp burning sensation when stretching to the side and is clicking when pressing on top of little toe.

Burning sensation: Can be a sign of neuropathy, otherwise these toes on different feet are not related. Clicking, can be gas expelling from a joint or a tendon snapping on a piece of bone or out of a groove. You should see a foot doc and have it checked out. ...Read more

Big toe growing out white an is now thin an ridged at the nail bed. It does not hurt. I have not injured it that I'm aware of. Very red on the side?

Big toenail: It is possible that your toenail is turning white as a result of nail polosh use. The ridging of the nail couls occur when there is cessation and resuming of nail growth. This can be brought on by an illness. Lastly, the redness along the side of the nail may be an ingrown toenail. This condition would require treatment. If there is a concern that the nail fungal, a nail culture is recommend. ...Read more

I have had this little bump on the side of my foot (near big toe) for months it looks like skin has accumulated there and it is painful when pressed?

Callous/ cyst: If skin is hardened maybe a callous due to sheer pressure. Use otc products or inserts to off weight.
If it is fluctuant, maybe a cyst. If hard, then maybe an exostosis or bone spur. Need to be evaluated by a doctor. ...Read more

Pain at base of big toe. Unable to put pressure there or ball of foot w/out5/10 pain. Cant bend or extend toeWalking on side foot to compensate. Ideas?

Yikes.: It seems odd that this type of pain and restricted motion exists without some degree of swelling and/ or inflammation. At least it was not noted in your description. Clearly, something is going on. Either physical (trauma) of chemical (gout). Regardless, your condition is best treated by a direct examination that would include x-ray and possibly some blood work. ...Read more

Is it recommended to use crutches after bunionectomy with deformaty on both sides of the joint of big toe pins will be used and straightening big toe?

Is it recommended to use crutches after bunionectomy with deformaty on both sides of the joint of big toe pins will be used and straightening big toe?

Depends: The use of crutches depends on the type of bunionectomy performed. Often most bunionectomy procedures are stable enough to walk on after surgery although be it limited walking. If your pain is elevated when walking then you should use crutches to alleviate those symptoms. Always consult your surgeon though before doing anything different than instructed. ...Read more

I have a bump on the side my big toe. I assume its skin but feels like bone. I believe its slowly getting bigger. How do I go about getting it removed?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, and physical examination. From what you described, it may be a callus or a corn. You may try over the counter treatment for callus/corn. If that does not resolve the issue in a month or so, see a doctor.
Wish you good health! ...Read more
