Bottle in shower fell on foot and broke the vein, skin. What to do?

Ice and pressure: First step would be to clean the torn skin with alcohol and apply pressure to the vein to stop any bleeding. Second step would be to apply a topical antibacterial agent such as Bacitracin or triple antibiotic. I am not a fan of neosporin. Third step would be to cover the injured area followed by a pressure dressing such as an ace bandage and finally ice to the area. ...Read more

Daughter rolled ankle inwards(soccer)says it feels like there is a crack on outside of ankle under the ball on the outside of foot,growth plate maybe?

Get an Xray: Go to your doctor. An Xray needs to be done to rule out fracture. Even if the Xray is normal, she probably still needs to be splinted and have a follow up in a week. Growth plate injuries don't always show up on Xray. Your doctor can do a complete exam and get whatever tests are necessary. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I have pain on the outside of the wrist when twisting it like a corkscrew (in either direction). Tendonitis?

I have pain on the outside of the wrist when twisting it like a corkscrew (in either direction).  Tendonitis?

Possible: Tendinitis is a possibility. Overuse is another option. If no history of trauma or a visible bump (ganglion cyst), then the two options described are most likely ones. Recommend avoid offending activities. Using a wrist splint may help rest the painful spot. Anti-inflammatory meds - ibuprofen/naproxe, topical rubs voltaren/flector patch may be tried. Icing should help as well. ...Read more

I have heel pain on the bottom after accidentally stepping on plastic object. No break in skin, no bleeding, color normal. Pain to put pressure on it.

Stone bruise: Sounds like bruising which should improve in a few weeks. If worsens or does not resolve by that time, please visit your primary care physician or podiatrist. If no allergy, liver or kidney disease, you may take Advil or Aleve (naproxen) to help with pain, and apply ice pack with skin protection of a towel. ...Read more

What causes a swollen & painful ankle/foot WITHOUT any injury? Also discoloration/bruising on the inside ankle. Very hard to put any weight on it

Pain without injury: There can be many different reasons for pain and swelling to an area without trauma. Some common reasons are infection, tendonitis, gout, joint inflammation and reaction to an insect bite. I recommend being seen in person or virtually for a proper work-up, diagnosis and treatment plan.

Hit on right heel by shopping cart foot bent under cart heard a pop in my plantar fascia now pain bottom of foot & Achilles tendon what to do?

Hit on right heel by shopping cart foot bent under cart heard a pop in my plantar fascia now pain bottom of foot & Achilles tendon what to do?

Start Now.: By the sound of it, likely a fascia injury and possibly some involvement with the Achilles tendon. These are initially treated in the RICE fashion.(rest, ice, compression and elevation) This will help with the swelling and pain. Avoid bearing weight on the foot until it can be examined and the true extent of the injury can be determined. Use Crutches until you can see a foot and ankle specialist. ...Read more
