Havez it for a short while on my forehead. Will popping make it worse?

Likely: Squeezing zits (acne) can inadvertently force lipid and bacteria (contained in the pimple) deeper into the skin and subcutaneous fat. That may spread the infection and result in a deeper, more painful problem. It is better to spot treat the pimple with a product specially formulated to treat acne. ...Read more

Awkward question.. Is it normal that I get acne on my upper-thighs? Will it go away with age?  It's a lot worse then the acne on my face.

Acne: Acne is typically on the face, back and chest where you sweat most. It is not typical to have it on your leg, so I would suggest you have it looked at by your doctor. There are rashes that look like acne and are not acne. ...Read more

Get evaluated: It sounds that you may have fluid in your middle ear which is not uncommon with sinus infection. Your physician needs to check your ears and determine the best treatment. I would recommend that you be evaluated soon as this may get worse and can cause complications ...Read more

My right ear has been clogged up for a long time it is not painful.  My doctor put me on a strong antibiotic, will this work? Anything else i can do?

See an ENT doctor: When and adult has a blocked ear on only one side, it could be a problem. It the antibiotic doesn't work soon, go see an ENT doctor for an evaluation. It could be nothing serious, and easily solved, or could be a sign of something serious that needs to be dealt with. Don't blow this off! ...Read more

Will my doctor have to re-break my wrist? I fractured my wrist a couple of months ago, and i recently found a long and wide bump on it, it feels hard like a bone sticking up. And it is causing me pain. It is not a sist, so do you think it healed wrong and

If : If your wrist is otherwise functioning ok and there is a relatively pain free and symptom free bump then it is unlikely that your doctor will re-break it, but you should see him/her nonetheless just to see what's going on. It may very well be some scar tissue or extra bone that won't cause a problem, but get it checked out. Best of luck. ...Read more

I can put full weight on my leg only when I bend it I get this pinching pain at the back of my knee and lower thigh. Still no swelling. Only been a day since I fell on it. Will it get better over time? What if going to a doctor isn't an option?

Ice down- then, heat: Ice it down twice daily until the knee freezes (20-30 minutes). Within next 24-48 hrs. switch from ice to warm compresses. I don't understand why seeing a doctor is "not an option"....usually in every major metropolitan city there is a way to see a doctor even if you have no insurance. You could solicit a private consultation here on this network....very inexpensive compared to private doctor. ...Read more

I have a pink scaly patch on my scalp for a long time which has gotten bigger and will not go away what could it be?

Lots of things: but psoriasis is my first thought. Your MD can look at it and tell. If it isn't obvious they can take a sample of the tissue (a biopsy) and tell that way. Very rarely, skin cancer presents this way , too, so see your doctor. It isn't an emergency, but it is important. ...Read more

Heel Pain/Heel Spurs: The only way to know if you have heel spurs on your heels is with an x-ray. They can't be felt. With that in mind both plantar fasciitis and heel spurs will present the same way. You need to ice your heels, stretch your calves (before you get out of bed or after sitting), wear supportive shoes and probably need to see a foot doctor for more comprehensive treatment. ...Read more
