Bleeding disorder?: I would like to get a thorough history: has this been happening for many years or is it recent? The most common cause is taking an anticoagulant, like aspirin, or vitamin e, garlic, Ibuprofen etc. Would also probably get a platelet count. Usually it's nothing major, but it should get checked out. ...Read more

What can I do if I can't suction 9mo's nose? She's too forceful and I've bruised her nose twice (husband's away). Will this cause ear infection?

Nasal suction: You need to be carful not to use too much force to suck the mucus. Must install saline nose drops or spray before suction to loosen up the mucus, hold the child & be careful not to hurt the baby in the process. Ear infection can result from nasal congestion. Good luck ...Read more

Accident caused severe bruising of the eye/fractured nose. 7 weeks ago, still slight dark line under the eye. Seek medical attention or just patience?

Probably patience: If everything is healing, and they eye is working normally, then allow the healing to continue. Blood pools in soft tissue after trauma and can take quite a while to completely resolve. Give it another 2 weeks unless you are having trouble with your vision, breathing, or sinuses. Take care! ...Read more

The right side of my nose is very tender like if it was black and blue but isn't. This started yesterday and caused a headache. I do take an over-the-counter nasal decongestant because my nose always feels stuffed up if i don't. Yesterday morning i woke

It : It is unclear on whether your otc decongestant is a nasal spray or pill. If it is a spray, i agree with dr. Funari that useage beyond 3-5 days can lead to rebound congestion ( rhinitis medicamentosa) and actually worsen your condition. If your nasal decongestant is in pill form (i.e., Pseudoephedrine containing) this will not create that type of condition. I also can not be sure where your tenderness is, but a common cause of nasal tenderness on the inside of the lower 1/3 of the nose ( nostril area ) is vestibulitis, or inflammation around a nasal hair follicle or oil gland. To be sure, and help with your nasal breathing difficulties, i would seek the advice of an ent. ...Read more

Back of head,right side,tender to touch,vigorous big movement.Feels like bruise,but no recollection of recent trauma.Hurts when lying down.Causes?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Both axillary lymph nodes were very sore yesterday and now they are just very bruised. I have a head cold. Would that cause the bruising?

Both axillary lymph nodes were very sore yesterday and now they are just very bruised. I have a head cold. Would that cause the bruising?

No, that's unusual: This may be something more than a simple head cold. I'd suggest seeing your family doctor about this. Especially if you have had recent weight loss, fever, night sweats, sore throat, fatigue, decreased appetite, menstrual changes or other constitutional symptoms, even if they were subtle before. Easy bruising is also a concern, especially if it is new. Please see your doc ASAP. Feel better soon! ...Read more
