Eyebrow Tenderness Symptoms
Head hit into another persons head on eyebrow bone 4 days ago. Dr said exam ok, just sore/headache- only symptoms. When should mild headache subside?
Concussion: Well, a mild concussion (as yours sounds to be) can take a week or more for all of the symptoms to subside. It can last much less, or a little after, but most of my patients have resolution by a week. Just remember to have some brain rest, and no vigorous exercise for a few days, and you should be fine. Good luck! ...Read more

Needs an examination: It's alway a good idea to have a young child of 2 years old evaluated for a fever even though she's ok during the day.

Potential problem: Generally, the cold sore virus or herpes simplex virus spreads by being in the nervous system of your body.

1mm x 4mm painless "sore" just below the head of my penis no other symptoms. A chancre? But I haven't had sex in the last 8months. What could it be?
Tricky not seeing it:
Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health,
Dermatologic conditions are hard to evaluate without seeing them in person.
Non-std skin conditions (boils, cuts, skin tears) can occur.
Std's can occur long after sex. Syphillis would generally be sooner and it is rare
Herpes can occur at any time and it is common ...Read more
