Bad idea: One should not pick at a pimple as a more extensive infection can develop. Apply intermittent warm, moist packs to the area of inflammation and apply bacitracin. See a physician if redness and discomfort persists or worsens as antibiotics may be needed. ...Read more

Fracture of (R) radial head (c) 8 wks. Above elbow still red, inflamed, sore, warm to touch stiff joint. Normal recovery or cause for concern?

Hard to know: The orthopedist/physician that has seen you previously and that has performed physical examination will know better; but infection of the joint or misalignment would need to be considered. Perhaps more likely that this is normal progression of healing (depending on severity of findings you mention). Have it checked out to be sure. ...Read more

See Your Doctor: It could be several things, from infections to various skin conditions. Most can easily be treated.
