Tobacco and kids: I get concerned about parental influence when i hear about young kids getting ahold of cigarettes. The body is not built to withstand abuse from smoking at any age, but effects on growing children are even more worrisome.

Veins: Hemosiderin stains secondary to veins and or ankle swelling. Not dangerous but one should watch for itching to start or increased swelling. Venous ulcer could start. Wear good compression hose or socks 20-30 mm Hg is fine. ...Read more

Bottle in shower fell on foot and broke the vein, skin. What to do?

Ice and pressure: First step would be to clean the torn skin with alcohol and apply pressure to the vein to stop any bleeding. Second step would be to apply a topical antibacterial agent such as Bacitracin or triple antibiotic. I am not a fan of neosporin. Third step would be to cover the injured area followed by a pressure dressing such as an ace bandage and finally ice to the area. ...Read more

Lost pigment : this means that you have lost the pigment cells. I'm not certain why and your best bet is to discuss with your physician about seeing a dermatologist. It may not be anything dangerous but at this point I can't tell you what I think it is ...Read more
