I read that there was 1 case of Zika virus (spread from mosquitos) in Puerto Rico as of 1/1/16 and there "may" be a link between the zika virus and microcephaly in newborns. (Sharp increase in both in Brazil in one year) I got bit about 20 times over a 10

Proof may be coming: If a pregnant woman visited or lives in an area where Zika virus transmission has happened or is possible, and she has or had Zika-like symptoms, she can get tested, and her baby fetus checked by ultrasound. If a woman has no symptoms but an ultrasound shows a small head or calcium spots in the brain, she can also get tested. As of January 2016, researchers are still gathering evidence about Zika. ...Read more

Tue..I was prescribed cephalexin 4 cellulitis. This morn I noticed red spots in multiple places on body. Allergic reaction / course of action?

Allergic reaction: Not being able to see the rash I have to conclude that this is an allergic to the cephalexin and you should stop it immediately. The good news is that this does not mean you are allergic to other cephalosporins or pencillins according to more recent findings. Contact your doctor to get the right drug for you. ...Read more

Returned from trip to 7-day trip to rural honduras. Now some small, round, itchy bumps appearing scattered on arms, top of legs, calves. What is this?

Bug bites.: What you are describing could be bug bites of some type due to the nonspecific location. Because of the tropical climate, it could be any number of arthropods. You may want to see a physician for treatment since the number is so high extending over a fairly large body surface area. Additionally, watch for any signs of infection--fevers, night sweats or redness and enlargement of the actual bumps. ...Read more

Dark rings appeared on the outside of foot.  One turned septic and pussey.  Rings appear to have moved 1/2 from toe. I've been to subtropical Oz?

A lesion doesn't: really turn septic a person becomes septic. Pus indicates infection. If there is an abscess present it needs to be drained, if there is a cellulitis you likely need an antibiotic. I would recommend you be evaluated by a doctor. ...Read more

My daughter has a red mark that hurts from an ice pack. This wa 2 days ago. There are no blisters, but it's warm. Will this heal on its own?

Yes it should heal: If there are no blisters, it should heal on it's own in a few days. If the area continues to get more red, warm, and hard to the touch, it is possible that she is developing a cellulitis (skin infection). if it's getting worse rather than better in the next few days I would have a doctor look at it. ...Read more

My son has blisters all over his knee after using an ice pack. Looks like a burn. Should he see a dr?

Ice burn: Ice can cause as much or more damage than heat. When an ice burn blisters, it indicates there is a burn that extends through a skin layer. You get him (his knee) into warm water between 104 and 106 degrees and observe, the area should begin to pink up, feel numb and tingling and then regain sensation. If this does not happen, he needs immediate medical attention. ...Read more

What treatment is recommended to treat ice pack freezer burn on side deltoid with a few blisters inside discolored skin that is numb and tingly?

What treatment is recommended to treat ice pack freezer burn on side deltoid with a few blisters inside discolored skin that is numb and tingly?

Heat initially: If this frostbite injury just happened, reheat the skin by immersing in warm water. If this happened more than a few hours ago, protect the skin from drying out by applying vaseline then a gauze dressing. Try to keep the blisters intact. If they pop, leave the blister tops in place, cover with vaseline and a gauze dressing. ...Read more

I accidentally fell asleep with an ice pack on my shoulder. It's bruised with a huge blister and some smaller ones. It's tingling and feels warm.

Frostbite : This thermal injury sounds like frostbite to me. I think you need an urgent evaluation at a burn center. This sounds like third or possibly even fourth degree frostbite. You also need to update your tetanus vaccination and possibly be placed in a hot whirlpool, get debridement of dead tissue and education on dressing changes and follow up with a burn surgeon. This is Advanced Trauma Life Support ...Read more

I have autoimmune inner ear disease and just finished a pack of steroids two days ago. Blood blister inside cheek just appeared tonight. Panic?

Don't panic: A collection of blood under the lining of the mouth is usually from trauma, like biting. It would not be an expected side effect of prednisone, but steroids can impair wound healing, so that might explain it. If concerned, have it checked out in the next few days. ...Read more

Which is the most effective/genuine brand of Clonazepam available in India? I tried Rivotril, and found that there was something wrong with it.

Generics: Have no idea what's available in India pharmacies. However generic medications are made by different companies and may vary according to different inactive ingredients, eg fillers, dyes. You may be reacting to an inactive ingredient in Rivotril or it may be less effective than the brand Klonopin (clonazepam is the generic name). Discuss with your prescribing doctor. Hope this helps. ...Read more
