What could cause: general aches and pains; mild to severe back stiffness and pain; muscle weakness; fatigue; sharp and cont.- occasional pain in head, lower abdomen, and hips; occasional shakiness; and excessive big, easily caused and long lasting (2 to 4w

These: These are very non-specific symptoms, and could mean a wide range of problems. General aches and pains could be secondary to viral illness, fatigue, stress/anxiety, musculoskeletal issues, etc. The shakiness could be due to low blood sugar, anxiety, chills secondary to infection process. The easy bruising could be due to a low plalelet count or other abnormality in blood count.
The bottom line here is to have a complete medical evaluation by your primary care provider. Hopefully after a detailed history, physical, and testing, your doctor will have a diagnosis (es) and will be able to provide a treatment plan.
Best of luck. I hope you feel better soon. ...Read more

I had a cut on my lip and I was putting peroxide on it but I learned that kills new skin cells. I'm now using Mederma for the scar but it doesn't look like it's going to heal the scar. Any other suggestions or is the tissue too dead from the peroxide?

I had a cut on my lip and I was putting peroxide on it but I learned that kills new skin cells. I'm now using Mederma for the scar but it doesn't look like it's going to heal the scar. Any other suggestions or is the tissue too dead from the peroxide?

Massage!: Don't beat yourself up too much about the hydrogen peroxide. It does slow healing of wounds, but lips heal so quickly, I doubt you did any harm. Scar massage takes time to work (2-3 months) and it cannot completely erase the scar. It will smooth and soften the scar and improve the color over time. Good luck! ...Read more

Keep it moist: Once you have reached the scab stage, it just has to resolve on it's own. If you keep it moisturized with ointment, it will soften the scab and heal more quickly.
If you have recurrent cold sores, consider having an antiviral onhand (pills and ointment). If you take or apply antivirals as soon as you begin to get symptoms (itching or burning), you can often abort the full blown cold sore. ...Read more

Early fusion sutures: The term is scaphocephaly and is cause by premature closing of the sagittal sutures as a neonate. The head is elongated in anterior-posterior diameter and shorten in the biparietal diameter. Usually surgery is performed in infancy to allow for normal brain development.
