I fell on the left side of my face today. My cheekbone is swollenand my eye a lil black around it. Head is pounding. Should I go get it checked out?

See a trauma doctor: I would have your situation checked out.

Such trauma can indirectly affect the globe of your eye and its position... And it can even affect your vision.

My son has cystic acne and has developed a boil on his cheekbone under his eye. What can we do to treat it without leaving a scar?

Forgive my frankness: If Junior has cystic acne, his whole face is going to end up badly scarred unless he gets on isotretinoin. It's too late to prevent a scar from this lesion. If you continue to resist definitive, effective treatment because of scare stuff you read on the Internet, Junior will hold this against you for the rest of his life. Almost everyone who goes this course is glad. Get with his physician now. ...Read more
