How can I avoid getting lines imprinted on my face from lying face down on a massage table head rest?

I fell on mon and hit my left elbow on a table. Since then I've had arm pain, my arm feels hot, and it hurts to use it. Should I just rest or get help?

I fell on mon and hit my left elbow on a table. Since then I've had arm pain, my arm feels hot, and it hurts to use it. Should I just rest or get help?

Get it checked: Without being able to examine your arm and assess for swelling, redness, movement, etc. Its hard to say for certain whether there is possibly a fracture or infection/inflammation somewhere or whether this can just be treated with pain medications and rest. It is best to get it checked by an MD. I hope you feel better soon. ...Read more

Probably tendon: It's hard to say the exact cause, however pain that is present after prolonged rest is usually muscle or tendon related.

I am 20 days away from marriage. My face color is dark brown unlike rest of my body. I need to make my face fair.

Don't try it: If you try to lighten your face, you'll disfigure yourself.
