Boil: A boil is a localized infection in the skin that begins as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm, hard, and more tender. Eventually, the center of the boil softens and becomes filled with infection-fighting white blood cells from the bloodstream to eradicate the infection. This collection of white blood cells, bacteria, and proteins is known as pus. You need antibiotics. ...Read more

My neck started popping/crackling when I turn my head left or right. It does not hurt. Any concerns or suggestions? Thanks
Not really: Many people have non-symptomatic neck popping and cracking (including myself!). You are probably sensing the normal motion of the cervical facet joints. I do not recommend purposeful cracking of one's neck, which usually requires a significant rotational movement of the neck (i have had patients with acute cervical herniations after those maneuvers). ...Read more

Wrist popping: Some have normal popping as tendons or bones shift. The carpal (wrist) bones shift as one flexes/extends or deviates and some just have looser ligaments that allow their bones to move more. Others can have injury or fatigue of ligaments due to different issues such as trauma or inflammation. Sometimes pain has nothing to do with popping, just the same motion gives both. Tendonitis can also "pop" ...Read more

If you find that you are limiting your activity or assuming awkward positions to perform simple tasks, then you should get it evaluated. A simple x-ray would screen for any unusual conditions. Many times physical therapy and nsaids cure mild pain in any joint. ...Read more
