Stye was at a head. Touched it. It popped. Looks like every thing is out. Right where the head of it popped, it has a red blood looking dot?

I had an injury at work where a heavy sofa felt on my big toe. Now it looks like a burst blood vessel is causing me pain. What can I do?
See a foot dr: You should have an xray to see if the toe was fractured. Ice the toeand do not put too much pressure on it. Broken blood vessel? Is there discoloration? You need to be careful if there is a black and blue toenail as there could be an underlying nail bed laceration. Those usually should get antibiotics, and the nail may have to be drained of underlying blood or removed. ...Read more

Yes, that bare finger had microbes on it that were introduced through the needle, putting you at risk for a viremia, fungemia or bacteremia which may but probably won't *lead* to symptomatic sepsis & shock. If your immune system is compromised by chemo, transplant/rheum meds, or HIV, tell your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Have a sore on my labia minora looks kind of like a blood blister. Hurts when touched. How long should I monitor before i see a doctor? Possible dx?

It can cause blisters or areas that feel like cuts surrounded by itching or burning. Certainly other things are possible like an infected hair follicle, a small abrasion and others. Don't wait. Schedule a visit. ...Read more
