Can you tell me about treating burns?

Can you tell me about treating burns?

A specialty: Severe burns, especially in children, should be treated at a burn center. The main principles are to replace fluids, excise and graft 3rd degree burns early and prevent and treat infection. Less severe burns can often be treated as an outpatient with topical mild antiseptic creams. They should be managed by a general or plastic surgeon. ...Read more

What happens if you had a nerve block/ESI with metallic particulates when you undergo 2 MRI's in 5 day period? Can it cause burns/holes in the spine?

What happens if you had a nerve block/ESI with metallic particulates when you undergo 2 MRI's in 5 day period? Can it cause burns/holes in the spine?

It depends.: In general "nerve blocks" or ESI (Epidural Steroid Injections) are not performed with "metallic particulates." Unless specifically cleared, MRIs can not be performed in individuals who have metal in their system because the magnet may cause motion or movement of the metal and surrounding tissues damage. Concern regarding a contaminated ESI, should be discussed with the provider who performed ESI ...Read more

Have I.I.H. upper spine/back of head/neck feel burning/pain. Sharp pains on head/in ears. Eyes burn/stab. pain. Face by eyes burns. Just a migraine?..

Feels familiar?: Hi Elle, What you describe is not specific enough to say whether this is IIH or migraine. As a headache specialist, I see many patients with IIH who continue to have headaches despite optimal management of intracranial pressure with acetazolamide. See your neurologist if the headaches you have now are worse in the morning, associated with double/blurry vision or ringing in the ears. Feel better ...Read more

Back problems: These symptoms are usually self-limited and should resolve with conservative treatment, including heat or ice, anti-inflammatory medications, muscle relaxants, daily stretching and walking. If this has been going on longer than 6-8 weeks see your doctor to make sure there isn't something more serious going on. ...Read more

Hurt lower back during lifting. Xray show no spine damage. Burn when sitting, bent over and post excercise. Possible pc muscle loss. Pulled muscle?

Muscle strain: It sounds like the pain in your back is worse with movement. It points to a strain in the muscles that support the spine; may have occurred during lifting. Muscle strains / sprains do not show up on X-ray; X-rays are best to check for the position & shape of bones. Rehab therapy is generally best in these situations, to strengthen the back muscles without adding more strain. Heating pads can help. ...Read more

The lower, center of the back of my head feels like there's an injury (long cut) and burns, but there's nothing topical. What could this be?

The lower, center of the back of my head feels like there's an injury (long cut) and burns, but there's nothing topical. What could this be?

Possible shingles: If only on one side of head it could be shingles from prior chicken pox.This commonly presents as an uncomfortable skin sensation before the rash shows. The issue is not the rash, which clears rather quickly, but rather that you can develop pain that lingers- post herpetic neuralgia. See your MD for evaluation so you can start appropriate medication early if needed and avoid long term problems. ...Read more

Sacroiliitis: If it's lower down by the butt and toward the center, than that's what it is. If it's higher up, it's your little spinal joints called facets. You need a good physical exam, but try to do some "cobra stances" in yoga with deep breathing to see if it makes a difference. ...Read more

The pain is on the lower left side in the back it  burns when I move around or walk to much.

Sounds like a nerve: You don't say how old you are but a burning pain often is caused by a pinched or irritated nerve. If you have any arthritis in your back this could be the cause. If you have any rash, it could also be shingles. If you have any burning when you urinate, it could be an infection. ...Read more
