My 10 week old has a hemangioma on her left arm, and is increasing in size. She was full term. Is there anything to stop it from getting larger?

My 10 week old has a hemangioma on her left arm, and is increasing in size. She was full term. Is there anything to stop it from getting larger?

Please see below.: Hemangiomas are fairly common, occurring in up to 10% of full-term babies by 1 year old, especially females. Most of the time they don't cause any complications, so no treatment is needed. Initially they grow very quickly, but after 4-6 months, growth slows, then stops. They then start slowly shrinking; most resolve by age 9. ...Read more

I have had numbness on my left pinky and part of my ring finger for the past 3 weeks can it be from lifting a heavy object I lifted a full paint bucket using my left arm only and my pinky and ring fingers have been numb since

I have had numbness on my left pinky and part of my ring finger for the past 3 weeks can it be from lifting a heavy object I lifted a full paint bucket using my left arm only and my pinky and ring fingers have been numb since

Numbness: Numbness in the left pinkie and the pinkie-finger side of the ring finger is usually caused by an injury to the ulnar nerve. In addition to lifting heavy objects (called a "traction" injury), the nerve can frequently be injured by compression, usually at the elbow, forearm, wrist or hand. Similar feelings can sometimes also be caused by nerve problems in the neck, or in an interchange of nerves called the brachial plexus. It takes a careful neurological examination, often aided by the use of nerve conduction study / electromyography to tell the difference between these problems.

Treatment can include splinting, surgery, or hand therapy (usually done by occupational therapists).

Left undiagnosed and untreated, problems can get worse and can lead to things including permanent weakness in the hand.

Neurologists who are board certified in neurology and board certified in electrodiagnostic medicine may be most helpful. ...Read more

Infection?: Perhaps you have an infection, either cellulitis or abscess, leading to fullness, pain, and possibly malodorous body odor. Only way to figure out what's going on is to go see your Family Doc for evaluation. Speculation won't help. In meantime, you can apply warm compresses to area to focus body's immune system. Some pus pockets can drain on their own so don't be alarmed if that happens. ...Read more

The blunt force-: -caused a tear/crush of the quad. Treat as a tear. Immediately you can feel the defect, later blood & clot fill in the defect & you then get the lump.

My 12yo son ran full speed into a wall during basketball stopping himself with his left hand/arm. Considerable pain in his forearm. X-ray was negati?

Rest and recheck: At 12 years old, your son still has growth plates. They can break without being noticeable on X-ray. If that is the case, the break is not out of place, so treatment would be just to protect it. But pulled muscles and ligaments also hurt. Wrap his arm with an ace bandage. Let him use it lightly and give him tylenol for the pain. Then give it a week. If it's still sore then, repeat the X-ray ...Read more
