Is it safe to remove a keloid with a rubber band?

Is it safe to remove a keloid with a rubber band?

Not the way I would: Keloids are an overgrowth of scar tissue. If a rubber band could be placed around a keloid to cut off its blood supply the keloid would have to turn black and fall off. This would leave a place for a new scar and potential new keloid to return. I treat most keloids with excision, steroids, pressure, topical silicone and sometimes short course of radiation if it has recurred.

Is it ok if doctors office use the same rubber band to tie gourarm up while they draw blood or should it be new?

Is it ok if doctors office use the same rubber band to tie gourarm up while they draw blood or should it be new?

Not a problem: Medical offices use infection control practices to ensure that they don't spread diseases from person to person. If a tourniquet (arm band) gets contaminated the person using it should dispose of it. Otherwise, putting it around an arm with clean skin should not cause problems for repeated use.

2 days ago I put a rubber band on my keloid. It%b4s started getting bumpy as if it had water, now it popped and I have some left. What do I do?

Clean: I have never heard of taking care of a keloid in this way. It may actually come back bigger. That would be my expected result. I would just keep it clean now with water and soap daily then a thin layer of vaseline until it heals over. I would see a physician for taking care of the keloid in the future.

Can your vein blow from too much pressure, from the rubber band being too tightened? And if so can you also pass out from this BEFORE knowing it blew?

Can your vein blow from too much pressure, from the rubber band being too tightened? And if so can you also pass out from this BEFORE knowing it blew?

Vein distension: With a tight band, blood would pool below the vein but bleeding from the distended vein would be unusual. It shouldn't cause loss of consciousness either as the volume of pooled blood wouldn't be large enough to affect blood flow to the heart enough to cause a blackout.

How does rubber band ligation work?

Tubal ligation: This is a surgical procedure performed under anesthesia by laparoscopic surgery using band-aid size incisions. Abdomen is inflated with carbon dioxide...You are asleep. The surgeon can see inside your abdomen with a highly specialized 'telescope'. A small silastic band is placed around a 'knuckle' of each tube, the ends seal off and separate, thereby creating a blockage which prevents conception.

Found corn like objects in stool. Haven't ate corn recently. Why could this be?

Found corn like objects in stool. Haven't ate corn recently. Why could this be?

Indigestible fiber: Human beings lack the enzymes and anatomy to break down certain fibers, so they can't be absorbed by the intestines. It's very common for these indigestible fibers to be visible in the stool. While you might not have eaten corn recently, you may have eaten something with that appearance. Unless you're having other digestive problems (diarrhea, abdominal pain, weight loss), no worries.

Can you tell me if I could fix space from a missing tooth with rubber band to bring them closer?

Can you tell me if I could fix space from a missing tooth with rubber band to bring them closer?

Dangerous: If it was possible would've all Orthodontists treat that way? Space closure is a difficult treatment challenge, especially if bone has resorted following long term tooth loss. Using rubber bands alone will tip teeth and make them crooked, and can slip below the gums and cause tooth loss. Please see an Orthodontic Specialist to discuss the extent of your malocclusion and available treatments.

Can you tell me how to place a rubber band between my teeth?

Can you tell me how to place a rubber band between my teeth?

Nope: What I can tell you is that trying to correct your spacing on your own can result in loss of those teeth. Rubber bands can cause serious damage to the gum and bone tissue, and are not recommended by any dental professional. Consult with an orthodontist if you want it done pain and worry free.
