I have a bad abcess with cellulitis on my leg i don't have insurance is there anything i can do at home to help and can cellulitis cause chest pain?

See doc: While i sympathathize, i would not advise trying to treat what you describe as a bad abscess at home. Typically this will need antibiotics and incision/drainage. An urgent care can likely do this for you reasonably cheaply. Sometimes the abscess may spontaneously rupture and drain, and you could place a warm moist towel to try to expedite this, but you need to see a doc. Chest pain needs doc. ...Read more

Are there any natural remedies i can use at home to help with a toothache? I have a tooth that just has kind of a dull throbbing pain, but i really don't want to go to the dentist.

You can be proactive (and smart) and see your dentist asap to resolve the issue while it is still mild, or ignore and/or mask the pain until it becomes so severe you can't do either anymore. There is no natural remedy. Heed the warning. ...Read more

Variety of treatment: Neuromas are inflammation and/or damage to the nerve. If you treat the problem early, you have a better chance for success. Cortisone injections, nsaids, good shoes and supports can sometimes help. If your symptoms have been present for greater than 6 months, then conservative care is not as successful.
