How long will it take for my hang nail tear to heal? I am a four year old and my mom is helping me type. My nail tore. Actually i tore it by pealing it with my hand it because it was too long. It hurts a little bit. Thank you.
That's : That's great that you got your mom to use internet to ask a doctor a question. It will usually take about a week, give or take a couple of days. Most of the time it heals by itself. However, there are some that will get infected by getting bigger and more swollen and become more painful. If this happens, your mom will take you to the doctor for real and maybe put you on antibiotics which will make the infection go away. Hope you feel better soon. ...Read more

Not unusual: Pain at a fracture site can persist very commonly for 4 months. Reactive swelling, pain from overuse, pain due to weather changes can persist for 8-12 months. Always a concern with regard to the position of the radius following reduction, and concomitant injury such as carpal tunnel syndrome or ligament injury. Follow up with your orthopedist. ...Read more
I have a broken radius and ulna on my right arm, under cast 1 week ago, how will i know if it is healing? If i feel minimal pain when i move.
Minimal pain is OK.: But increasing pain, bluish discoloration and impaired movement, numbness and tingling of fingers suggest too tight placement of the cast. In 6-8 weeks your dr will repeat xray to determine if alignment of the fracture and callus (new bones) around the fracture site have occurred and these are signs of healing. http://www.noelhenley.com/249/how-do-i-know-my-broken-bone-is-healed/. ...Read more

I sprained my ankle 3 weeks ago and i still can't walk on it. I can put partial weight on it with crutches but that's it. Is this normal?
Ankle sprain: "normal" healing of a sprained ankle, it depends on the severity of the sprain. If its a chronically sprained ankle with constant pain and instability, it will take longer than a mild outside sprain. Usually 3-4 weeks of rest, icing, antiinflammatory meds (like advil (ibuprofen) or motrin), bracing or compressing wraps, with or without physical therapy should be normal. Hope that helps! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
