Infection?: You may have an infection of some type, possibly fungal or bacterial but what you're describing sounds like a tinea corporis type of ring especially if it's red all around and there may be a small area in the center which is clear and it's itchy. An exam would definitely tell the doctor what it is and how to fix it. If you'd like to chat more about it write me: www. Healthtap. Com/dr-drsaghafi ...Read more

Touched eye after handling raw chicken. Tear duct is sore almost a week later. No redness. Could this resolve on its own? Anything to watch for?

Yes: The difficult problem is knowing what you mean by sore tear duct. The inner corner of your eyelid has a drainage hole (punctum) that allows tears to drain into your nose via nasolacrimal duct. If you had an infection from the chicken, I'd expect much more yellowish discharge from eyeball. However if you're very tender in the corner with eyelid redness/swelling, get it checked by Eye MD.? antibiotc ...Read more

My toddler ate curried rice with green onions & stir fried vegetables with ginger. His balls became red after poop & painful on touch. What should I do?

My toddler ate curried rice with green onions & stir fried vegetables with ginger. His balls became red after poop & painful on touch. What should I do?

Possible irritation: Poop can often be very irritating to the skin. If the redness is limited to his scrotum following his poop, that is probably the cause. I would wash him with mild soap and water and use a moisture barrier such as vaseline or desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) on the red areas. If the irritation persists, plan on seeing his pediatrician in the morning. ...Read more
