Depends

Extremity-upper-hand
depends on many factors how bad is the fracture and how good is the vitamin D level and of course all smokers heal slower all fractures take about 2 years to go on to FULL HEALING AND REMODELING but most should be pretty darn solid by 10-12 weeks with hands stiffness is a major issue post injury so early gentle range of motion is important

What are the chances I can get an infection after having right-hand carpal tunnel release surgery and should I take antibiotics to prevent it?

Low

Carpal_tunnel_syndrome
The surgical infection rate after carpal tunnel release is low, probably well less than one percent. Antibiotics are sometimes used before surgery as a prophylaxis as well. Thank you.

Is there any way I can prevent bruising from Juvederm injections? Bruises seem to take forever to heal on me, so I'd like to try to avoid them when I get my Juvederm treatment. Do you have any advice for how to do that? .

Bruising

Juvederm
Icing the treated areas following juvederm treatment and stopping all blood thinners such as aspirin prior to treatment per your doctors permission will help reduce bruising

Dr. Ted King answered:

How to get rid of obvious veins on your hands and how to prevent them?

A few possibilities

Extremity-upper-hand
Sclerotherapy works very well for treating hand veins.They can also be treated by a simple minor operation called phlebectomy. They can also be treated by injecting dermal fillers to fill up the skin around the veins and hide the veins that way.This is the least permanent of the three but it doesn't actually touch your veins.Prevention isn't possible as age makes visible hand veins inevitable.

How do i get rid of toe nail fungus and prevent fungus on my hands?

Medicine works best

Open-uri20121101-15204-1vo7v5b
There is no home remedy that is effective. You can try topical antifungal medications, but the ones provided in podiatry offices are more effective than those in the pharmacy. There are other options, including oral medication, that are also effective.

What kind of pills or treatment can somebody get for hand pain?

Try OTC first

Extremity-upper-hand
If pain / injury is not too serious can always try OTC agents like Tylenol and/ or Ibuprofen or naproxen. If this not helpful can always have your doctor re evaluate and see if there is something more serious going on

Dr. Adam Bodian answered:

How long my hand continue to flake after a course of anti fungal treatment?

It shouldn't

Hand
After the treatment you shouldn't have any more flaking. You may also have seborrheic dermatitis (I know that's a big word) or a hand dermatitis. I would try rubbing Vasaline, petroleum jelly thinly into your hands while they're soaking wet (after shower or hand washing) for 30 seconds then towel dry.

See a doctor

Bite wounds are serious and frequently require drainage and antibiotics. This not something to wait around on.
