I Stabed Myself With Pencel
I am terrified of cutting my baby's fingernails, I feel like I might cut her by accident.What should I do?
Sandpaper works: Early in my practice a grandmother showed me how to file these using a small square of sandpaper.I have advised and used the technique since. I like wet/dry 120-180 grit in a 2X3 inch size.Roll this along the outer edge and it takes down the snags/nail without taking off skin.There is also no risk of a cut. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

What to do if i just cut my finger with a dirty old stanley knife blade, can I treat it on my own?
Probably not: The parts of your question that concern me are "dirty" and "old." old dirty metal items are frequent sources for tetanus and other common and equally concerning infections. I would thoroughly clean it with warm water and soap, wrap it, and go to see your primary doc in a day or so. If the cut is very deep, or if you start to develop pus-like drainage, heat, or swelling i would go to the er. ...Read more

Can you prevent bv? I was diagnosed with bv and now i feel like my gyn thinks i am dirty (which i am not) i just feel gross
I'm miserable...What do I do? It's just that my boyfriend didn't like me cutting myself and he broke up with me, i cried and my parents grounded me! I have no cellphone, and no facebook i just want my life to be normal again!
You : You do sound like you are feeling unhappy. It is so hard to break up. Do you parents know that you cut yourself? If they don't know, please tell them. When a person cuts themself, it is usually a sign that things are not ok. Some people cut when they feel empty inside, or they might cut so that their physical pain distracts them from emotional pain. Cutting might ease tension or feel like you are letting bad stuff out. Regardless, of the reason, it means that you need some professional help. If you don't have a therapist, your parents need to help you find one. If you do have a therapist, make sure that he or she knows how you are feeling inside. If you have thoughts of killing yourself you need to let someone in responsibility; a parent, school counselor, teacher, etc.; know right away. This should not be ignored. You do need to talk with someoe. You can show your parents this response, it if well help with communication. Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I just got brand new cutco knives and first thing i cut with them was my foot by dropping it on it, do I need a tetanus shot?
Watch out: First you should clean your wound with soap and water, washing it out well. Then think. When was your last tetanus shot? If you cannot remember, get one. If you do remember and it was within the past 10 years, in this situation you really should be ok. If it were a really dirty injury and your shot was more than 5 years ago i would recommend getting a booster. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
