If ice doesn't improve your swelling, go see your regular doctor or orthopedist. Good luck! ...Read more

I have a  wound on my inner thigh that is hard to cover  and is easy to open further. What can I do to help heal it?

Get help: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation ( red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read more
