Popping A Cherry
Herpes: There is no treatment that can cure herpes. Antiviral medications can, however, prevent or shorten outbreaks during the period of time the person takes the medication. In addition, daily suppressive therapy (i.e., daily use of antiviral medication) for herpes can reduce the likelihood of transmission to partners. Do not "pop" a herpes bump as you can spread the infection. ...Read more
No: A pinguecula is a fibrous overgrowth on the surface of the eyeball, in the whites of the eyeball. You do not want to scratch the eyeball. Perhaps you don't mean a pinguela, but a rather you mean a stye or chalazion which are infections or pimples occurring in the eyelid. Those are treated with warm compresses and antibiotics. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Blister: A small, unbroken blister less than 1 in. (2.5 cm) across, even a blood blister, will usually heal on its own. Do not try to break the blister. Just leave it alone to avoid infection. Leave the blister uncovered unless something rubs against it. If you do cover it: put on a loose bandage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Only if it is tense: Usually we don't recommend popping blisters, as the intact skin prevents infection. The fluid will generally resolve on its own. If the blister is tense and painful though, it can be helpful to drain the fluid. I would try to keep the skin intact as much as possible. And cover the wound with a bandage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Made a cherry smoothie, pitted the cherries but while drinking it noticed some broken pieces of a cherry pit (likely missed 1) dumped it. Will I be ok?
No problem: People swallow cherry pits (by accident) all the time without problems. I'm guessing you've heard cherry pits contain amygdalin, a substance that is broken down into cyanide. Apple seeds, almonds and apricot pits also have amygdalin. You'd probably need to eat 100 or more ground cherry pits to get a toxic dose. Some believe that small amounts of amygdalin prevent cancer. Next time don't dump it! ...Read more
Probably not: Blisters make the best covering for injured skin. Most of the time i instruct patients not to pop blisters. If it is huge then it will probably pop on its own. Keep it cleaned and covered if it does. ...Read more
Pressure & erosion: Likely a combination of processes. An infection or inflammed area exudes chemical messengers that draw white blood cells in to do battle, so fluid builds up. Also, one way the body trys to heal itself is by drainage of what it can, so the tissues thin and rupture to let the pus/fluid/infection out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
BAd Idea: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. No irritating alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, vinergar and bleach solutions. Inflammation (red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read more

A TMJ symptom: Painful popping noises in the jaw joint while chewing are a common manifestation of TMJ problems. It usually indicates a partially displaced TMJ disc inside the jaw joint. To my knowledge, you can't rupture a mouth muscle while chewing. If the painful popping continues, you may want to seek treatment to prevent the disc from becoming completely displaced which may lead to locking or arthritis. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

My boyfriend fingered me very hard earlier and I bled a lot. Ive had sex before so I didn't think it was my cherry popping but could it have been?
Doubt it: If you've had intercourse before it's highly likely your hymen broke at that time. If he was fingering your vagina very hard as you describe it's more likely that he made a small (or large) tear in the lining of your vagina.I would avoid any kind of intercourse or fingering until you feel healed and maybe even want to consider having your doc take a look at it to determine the severity of the tear ...Read more
So it's my first time having sex, I'm extremely scared about my cherry popping and the blood going everywhere, do you have any suggestions for me?
No need to worry: Your concerns are completely understandable. However the amount of bleeding from the hymen is very small, and resolves on its own. Place a towel either on top or underneath the sheets, to put you at ease. Your partner will probably be very supportive and understanding. And of course, ALWAYS use condoms to protect against pregnancy and STDs. ...Read more
Penis rubbed against vagina, no pre-cum, no full ejaculation and no penetration, no signs of cherry popping, can she be pregnant?
No, but...: The odd to conceive under the reported scenario should be next to zero in considering the high fastidious requirement for sperm survival. Nonetheless, still do HPT in a week after missing the expected period and repeat it in another week if the first test is (-) and still in doubt. Besides, get counseling for heightening the standard of responsible safe sex against pregnancy & STDs. ...Read more
Not on your own: If you are popping your back on your own, most likely it is not being done in a safe manner. You should see chiropractic doctor who can do it in a safe manner. There is always the chance of friction injury on the cartilage between bones whenever you pop a joint. I would recommend stretching and muscles strengthening. ...Read more
See below: There are several joints in the neck. Over time these joints can "wear out" leading to degeneration and inflammation of the joint. When a joint becomes inflammed it often swells due to increased synovial fluid. When this fluid is forced out of the joint it is common to feel and/or hear a "pop". Try focusing on posture to help take pressure off of the joints and reduce the "popping". ...Read more

Edema: If this is primarily on the legs, it may be due to low level swelling or edema. Fluid can sometimes be retained in the legs from standing or sitting for long periods. Pressing in these areas causes a temporary depression called pitting which pops back up fairly quickly. See a dermatologist or your primary care physician to evaluate this issue. ...Read more
? TMJ syndrome: I assume you mean that your jaw pops out of socket on one or both sides. This is known as temperomandibular joint syndrome. For some it is hereditary. Try to avoid very chewy foods like gum, sticky candy, steak, etc. See your orthodontist for further recommendations based on your particular joint condition. ...Read more
Popping wrists: If there is no pain, no injury and no other joints are popping or cracking, can leave it alone. Obsessive over it will not make it go away; joint popping, not just in the wrist, is very common and if there are no symptoms, no specific treatment is needed. "if its's not broken, don't fix it". ...Read more
