I get multiple, deep cracks on the heels of my feet, they do not hurt. Why do I get them? How can I lessen them? Moisturizers don't work.

I have 2 small bumps on my head, they hurt when I push them in or touch them. Do you know what it could be???
Bumps on head: Two things come mind right off: 1) shingles.

Blocked oil glands that fill, can get infected, often need to be drained in the office. See a dr if they get worse or seem like something else entirely. ...Read more

Use warm compress to closed eyes, artificial tears. Better 4 eye ...Read more

See your dentist for exam. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why do my teeth hurt when i chew after getting fillings? They didn't hurt before and its been a month
Common question: Without knowing the depth of the restorations, it's hard to tell exactly why they are sensitive. But in general, the teeth were slightly traumatized by the excavation of the decay, and the irritated nerve in the tooth can remain sensitive until it heals. The bite may also be off a bit, so it's best that your restorative dentist takes a look. Call for an appointment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
