Roasted Red Pepper Soup
I have a red spot on top lip. Started out no bigger than a speck of pepper and flat. Months later, it's the size of a period and more of a bump. ?
I got sprayed with maximum strength pepper spray on my leg, .. It burned badly. I wiped it with soap but it's red. Is this ok? Could this be toxic?
Ouch must have hurt!: As long as there is no blistering or breaks in the skin you should be ok. The redness is like a sunburn and if its painful taking Ibuprofen and using aloe or other skin products that contain vitamin e can help. If there is blistering then without knowing how much area is involved i would advise seeing a doctor. Other than the local injury there should be no toxicity from this exposure. ...Read more
Can red pepper take a few days to fully get out of your colon?I saw 1-3 small red spots in my stool for 2 days now had red peppers in a dinner Friday

Red pepper may not fully be digested (esp. if it is dried flakes) and thus might show up in the stool. If this was bleeding, bright red blood usually comes from the rectal area and would not look like flakes. Blood from further up the GI tract is usually very dark. ...Read more

I have a sinus infection. Been taking an antihistamine and decongestant. Why does my nose feel like i sore red cheyenne pepper? What can I do to stop
Antibiotics: If you truly have a sinus infection, then you will need an antibiotic. Infection causes inflammation of the nasal tissue and thus the soreness and antihistamine/decongestant does nothing for an infection. Some times saline nasal irrigation may help but probably not in your case. See your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My nose and throat are red and white in color no fever not a lot of drainage flush nose out daily with some yellow and green discharge and some times black pepper coming out not alot of pain?
Maybe strep,flu,etc.: Nose and throat symptoms can be from cold viruses, strep throat, sinus infections, allergies, etc... Sometimes, it can be difficult to tell what the cause is, without an exam and follow-up. If symptoms only last 1-2 days, it was likely allergies, irritation, or a mild cold. Doctors have rapid 5-minute tests for strep, so a primary care doctor can diagnose strep and start antibiotics. ...Read more
