Hot is cold cold is hot pain all over focusing at the cerebral cortex could this be a sign i had a stroke? If no what else can cause this

Not Clear: It seems that you are saying that you have abnormal/unexpected sensations over a part of your head or scalp. The actual cerebral cortex can't been seen(except at surgery) and doesn't have sensation. What you seem to be describing on the scalp sounds like a local peripheral neuropathy. This means there may be some nerves in the scalp that are transmitting abnormal sensations. ...Read more

On 2nd day after nose injury not much pain,no black eye but little sweling that is however increasing.Is it a cause of concern? Should I take Ibprufn?

On 2nd day after nose injury not much pain,no black eye but little sweling that is however increasing.Is it a cause of concern? Should I take Ibprufn?

I believe it is: quite reassuring that the injury isn't too serious if you have no pain or bruising. I wouldn't worry about the swelling, which is the result of tissue inflammation and destruction, unless it continues to grow or function is significantly impaired: nasal obstruction impairing breathing, throat obstruction, etc. If you don't have pain, I wouldn't take ibuprofen just for swelling. Icing might help. ...Read more

Herpes and syphilis: Sexually transmitted diseases are no fun. Therefore docs always recc prevention. Talk to your partner too- it can go along way. Herpes is usually multiple blisters and v painful. Syphilis on the other hand can come up as one sore only that ulcerates and may not be painful. There are other STDs but they are less common.
