Can i pop a prodrome herpes bump?

Can i pop a prodrome herpes bump?

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

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 more

Should I pop the blister from a red ant bite?

Should I pop the blister from a red ant bite?

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 more

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?

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

Thoughts? Could pickle juice heal a popped blister?

Thoughts? Could pickle juice heal a popped blister?

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

I felt a painful pop when chewing. Did I rupture a mouth muscle or is this a TMJ symptom?

I felt a painful pop when chewing. Did I rupture a mouth muscle or is this a TMJ symptom?

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 more

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?

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?

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

Is popping your back healthy?

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.

Why is my neck popping so frequently?

See below: There are several joints in the neck. Over time these joints can "wear out" leading to degeneration and inflammation of the joint.
