No time?: Any licensed physician can handle all but the most severe cases of acne. I trust you're already using topical benzoyl peroxide 5% 2x/day; your personal physician can write for the oral contraceptive pill (if right for you), topical / systemic antibiotics, topical spironolacton, or retinoic acid derivatives. College / free health clinic can help. No time for any health care? Big change is needed. ...Read more

The foreskin on my penis is very red and irritated, and I sometimes feel pain in the head of the penis, my foreskin is not tight. What is this?
Still...: Without direct inspection, it's hard to firmly state what it's; but the most common condition is still long-foreskin-related inflammation / yeast infection. So, keep the glans penis and foreskin clean ; dry after washed with tap water ; apply topical cream thinly with the ingredients of steroid and anti-fungus drugs. If not improved as expected in 1-2 wks, see urologist for possible circumcision. ...Read more

Hi my daughter had head butted me in the nose and as soon as she did there was a popping noise. There was immediate pain redness and slight swelling.
Ouch!: The popping noise could be a separation of the cartillage from the nasal bone or a nasal bone fracture. If your nose looks crooked, or if one nostril is really blocked relative to the other, I recommend having it examined by your doctor, ENT or urgent care. Non-displaced fractures usually heal well without intervention, but if deviated, it should be treated within 2-3 days. ...Read more
