Could i put lidocaine cream to numb my son's face to take the non-washable paint he put in his face?
Not a good idea: While Lidocaine cream might temporarily numb his skin you will still have to scrub very hard to remove this paint. In addition to damaging his skin with all this rubbing it will start to hurt him once the cream wears off. As long as his skin is not red and irritated it would be better to gently clean the area with mild soap and let the paint come off slowly over a couple of days. ...Read more
Yes but...: Vaseline sits onthe surface of the skin. It moisturizes the skin by preventing water from evaporating from the surface. Vaseline works well for some people but in others it can occlude the oil glands and cause acne. Other ways to soften the skin include hydrators (e.g. Hyaluronic acid that binds water inside the skin) and squalane which fortifies the natural lipids in the upper layers of the skin. ...Read more
Will putting hemp oil on my face letting it soak in for 30 minutes then put Retin a (tretinoin) on minimise redness and flaking?
Possibly: Products like Retin-A exfoliate the skin, and WILL cause some dryness and flaking in some people. If this is too bothersome, try applying every other night. A moisturizer can help with the flaking, but use caution. Some people have had acne breakouts using hemp oil in their face, so if your acne worsens, stop the oil. You can also ask your Dr what moisturizer he/she recommends! ...Read more

Sunscreen moisturize: There are some excellent sunscreen moisturizer combinations made, but the sunscreen level in many of them is in the 10 - 25 spf range. If it is winter in the northern climates that would be all you need.

A good ergonomic chair can assist with this. 2) keep your feet flat on the floor, with your knees at a comfortable 90 degrees. 3) your hands should be "neutral" - without significant bend up or down. This will minimize your risk of carpal tunnel syndrome. Happy keyboarding! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

As such one needs warmth which increases the blood supply to the lesion and thus promotes healing. ...Read more

No nausea: If you have no nausea, vomiting, loss of consciousness, or visual changes, the chances of having a brain injury is small. It will be sore for a few days, but if the bump subsides, then it should be ok.

See a neurologist: There are many types of headaches and many reasons for each type. You should speak to your primary care physician who can refer you to a neurologist. It would be helpful for you to keep a "headache calendar" by noting down the timing, frequency, duration, and intensity of your headaches. Ice is not proven for migraines, especially if it is diffuse. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/headache.html ...Read more

Healing from bump on head. sitting up , looking at phone , leaned down felt something crack /pop in base of neck now hurts.See dr or put ice pk on it?
No: Trauma to the scalp often produces a "goose egg" swelling due to bleeding into the membranes of the scalp. Ice and pressure will reduce the amount of bleeding. If injury is severe, evaluation may be necessary including ct scan to look for fracture or bleeding inside the skull. Ice and pressure will not affect the fracture or internal bleeding. But additional evaluation would be necessary. ...Read more

I have had a headach four 7 days on my left side of my head right behind my eye . It starts right when i wack up and it gets hurting more every hour in tell i take 4 Advil and lay down and put ice on it for hours and then that does not work all the time .
First : First of all vodka and advil (ibuprofen) is a dangerous combination.This could adversely affect your liver and could cause liver damage and possibly failure which could be lethal. The maximum amount of advil (ibuprofen) is 3200mg/day and no more than 800mg every 6 hours. An over the counter advil (ibuprofen) tab is 200mg. As far as your headache goes, if it has been present for 7 days then this definitely warrants a medical evaluation. It sounds like a cluster headache. Your doctor will be able to tell you what their diagnosis is after a complete evaluation and give you appropriate treatment. Best of luck. ...Read more
