Cut myself using "sticker remover". Skin healed but possible got some liquid in open wound. Could this have adverse effects (mutagenic/carcinogenic)?

Cut myself using "sticker remover". Skin healed but possible got some liquid in open wound. Could this have adverse effects (mutagenic/carcinogenic)?

Likely ok: Hi YPope,
I think likely you'll be ok. I would check the ingredients of the sticker remover to see if there are any harmful components - most of the time these products are non-toxic. Very shallow foreign objects will be "grown/pushed" out of the skin layer over time. Deeper foreign objects will get "walled off" and you may feel a hard lump under your skin. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Doubtful: However if the fluid is pusey, it is likely from an infection which requires medication attention. The mutagenic potential mentioned requires extensive and prolonged exposure. Even then it is just a potential risk and not a certainty. ...Read more

Hi I had a torsion in my left teaticale about a month ago it still haven't heals proper and stickers have not broke down what shall I do?

Here are some...: I assumed you underwent testicular fixation for testicular torsion, which is usually done for both sides despite unilateral torsion. The pace of post-surgical resolution may widely vary to reflect the magnitude of tissue dissection and injury, postoperative collection of blood or simply transudate, and personal tissue healing ability. For individual detail, please ask your surgeon timely. ...Read more

I'm dark skinned and have darker patches on my chest after wearing stickers on there for a day. Its been two weeks now. How can I clear it up?

Contact dermatitis: You may have developed a contact dermatitis. Steroid creams can help with this. The one caution is that in some people (especially dark skinned) the steroid may have a whitening effect, so use caution not to get the opposite effect and be too light in that area. You can always see a dermatologist to be definitive in the diagnosis and treatment, Good luck. ...Read more

If you can get them: As long as you can get them on. If you are using for traveling for comfort and preventing swelling that should be fine if too tight go down a little in the pressure. I see you are 31 just so you know they have some non old people ones. They are running compression socks just FYI. ...Read more

Work and then. Work: Lab evidence that you are putting out increased blood occurs within a day or two of treating low iron If That Is the Only Problem.

Gradual improvement in amount of oxygen the blood can carry on increased red cells occurs in weeks to 1-2 months.

My son 8yrs old, iron is ok and ferritin is low 14 than normal range. Hg is low but within normal range. What does it mean? Iron suplement is needed?

See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, knowing the actual values would have helped. In any case it would be safe to give him oral iron and multivitamins. These are available over the counter, however, you should consult his doctor. ...Read more

What to do if I have used corn remover pad and liquid but it didn't help. Can yo recommend anything?

See a podiatrist: The corn/callus is your skin's way of protecting itself from where there is pressure. If you don't get rid of what is causing the pressure, the corn/callus will reoccur. This can be done with accommodative padding and orthotics. There are stronger rx medication available to remove the corn/calluses. Also, corns/calluses can mimic other lesions; go see the doc. ...Read more
