I used my nail cutter n cut a bit of my 3 month old's thumbnail skin while cutting his nails.I cleaned the blood n bandaid.Anything 2 worry r 2 do?

Monitor: I would monitor the site for redness, swelling or drainage. Most will heal well and this is not an unusual injury . Try to avoid the clippers in the future. You can use a small square of fine sandpaper to buff off the end of the nails as they grow.It flexes with the change in contour and will never cut. I don't use emery boards as they are too stiff and take off too much skin. ...Read more

Can I take this splint off mallet finger?

Can I take this splint off mallet finger?

Yes, carefully: Splinting for mallet fingers works by keeping the torn end of the extensor tendon closely approximated to the bone. By removing the splint, you risk pulling the tendon away from the bone. This may delay or even prevent healing. The splint should be worn 24hrs/day, 7days/wk for 6 weeks for best results. If you have to remove the splint, keep the tip of the finger hyperextended. Put it back on asap. ...Read more

Fingering, masturbation, no bleeding, but finger goes deep inside, tried checking hymen by putting a blunt pencil, goes only upto 2 inches..Hymen broken?

Fingering, masturbation, no bleeding, but finger goes deep inside, tried checking hymen by putting a blunt pencil, goes only upto 2 inches..Hymen broken?

Difficult to know: The hymen is a remnant of the tissue that was part of the vagina, before the vagina changed from being solid to being a tunnel, during embryological development. Girls who have never had intercourse can use tampons because the hymen stretches. Only about 50% of women will bleed the first time they have vaginal sex. I would not recommend putting objects like a pencil into your vagina. ...Read more
