Follow this am: People often tell me that their child's ear is red, then we end up diagnosing ear infection later in the day/week.

However, I think it's also common that kids ears are red b/c they sleep on them or maybe b/c kid has a fever.

Looked in baby's ear and ear drum is red on one ear he is teething and runny nose could it b ear infection or pressure? 4 weeks ago on antibiotics

Red doesn't diagnose: Red is but one thing we look at when visualizing an ear drum. Red alone does not an ear infection make. An ear drum can be red if child has fever, is crying, holding breath, etc. We also look at landmarks, how the light reflexes, whether the ear drum moves, whether there is fluid behind the drum. All the things together make the diagnosis. If you are concerned, best to have doc look to diagnose. ...Read more

I have had a head ache for 6 days in a row now. My face gets steaming hot and red. Could it be blood pressure? Can blood pressure peak in the am?

My 2month baby having cold and cough infection from 7 days and now she is passing little clot of blood with mucus and can see red spot all over fore head is this worried full but here no one giving her medicine could you give me guidance.?

Need more info: What you describe sounds like she is coughing so hard that she has what is called "peticheae" (tiny bleeds into skin) on her forehead. It needs to be evaluated by your doctor right away. Pertussis infection comes to mind, which would be concerning at her age. Seek medical attention and/or go to er. If she is breathing heavy, is not feeding well or "looks sick" you should go to er tonight. ...Read more

I was cleaning out my ear with a ear bud and all of a sudden I had bright red blood come out of my ear with no pain what could this be I'm concerned?

Injury to ear canal: The ear canal is easily injured by inserting anything into it. It is likely that you scratched the delicate skin with the ear bud, causing bleeding. If bleeding continues for more than a few minutes, or there is any hearing loss, or significant pain, the ear should be examined by a physician. Otherwise, it would be advisable to keep water out of the injured ear for a few days, and no ear bud. ...Read more

7 days ago large red patch on right forearm, 3 days ago constant pain in top left shoulder, moved to neck then over ear since then. Blood clot?

Why guess?: Constant pain - unless it's been chronic and you know the reason - or severe acute pain are signals from your body for attention. Please heed them. The moving pain may or may not be related to the red spot but deserve an exam. Your guess of a blood clot may come from thin air or your hx. It would be a serious cause so be seen ASAP.

How long could it usually take for DLE (if at all)to develop into SLE? .Blood test and urine OK. Biopsy soon. Red patch in ears and scalp steroid working.

It usually doesn't: If you feel well, and the labs aren't worrisome with any of the specific antibodies characteristic of systemic lupus, you'll probably only have to worry about the discoid lesions which -- if that's really what it is -- can be troublesome enough. Best wishes and good luck. ...Read more

I have been bleeding from my vagina, nose, and ear. I have been puking up bright red blood and what looks like coffee grounds I had my period. Instead of lasting the normal 4 to 5 days it lasted for 2 weeks. Then 2 weeks later it started again. Then I had

You: You need medical attention. The coffee ground vomit is likely due to your nose bleed. The blood becomes oxygenated in the GI tract which gave it this appearance. The blood when you blew your nose, is likely to be from the lesion that is the source of your nose bleed. It needs to be determined why you are continuing to bleed vaginally. You appear to be bleeding several different sites. Sometimes, if the nose bleed is not stopping, it might need treatment (like cautery). Please call your doctor this morning to get further instructions. ...Read more

Taking ciprofloxacin and paracetamol for an ear infection. Now had bowel movement and was constipated with bright red blood. Help?

Taking ciprofloxacin and paracetamol for an ear infection. Now had bowel movement and was constipated with bright red blood. Help?

Not related.: Probably use of ciprofloxacin and paracetamol and having constipation are not related. Constipation is mainly due to lack of fiber and lack of adequate intake of water in the diet. Common to have bleeding with constipation. Try using psyllium or Metamucil and increase fibre and liquid intake. U can also take a stool softener like lactulose. If bleeding persists see ur doctor. ...Read more
