Foreign body or cyst: You have to rule out a foreign body which may have become embedded in the back of your heel, but there is more of a likelihood that it could be an inclusion cyst which can be painful. You should consider having it examined and biopsied which will basically take care of 2 things - it will remove the immediate problem and help determine what it is. See a podiatrist! ...Read more

Dr. can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat).

Not at all: You should not worry before you have a test to determine if you have HIV or another sexually transmitted disease. Simply make an appointment with your doctor, discuss your sexual activity and ask for testing for STDs as well as for advice regarding safe sex. Do not be shy about doing this, we are all prepared to have these discussions and to address these concerns. You are part of a generation that seems to have a higher rate of anxiety about many things, health especially. It is not clear why this generation has such a high rate of anxiety or, as you call it, paranoia, but rest assured you are not alone. ...Read more

Maybe normal: I'm guessing you are seeing normal circumvallate papillae -- a row of large bumps across the back of the tongue that can appear wart-like. They are entirely normal. Google it for photos to compare. If those photos don't match, best to see a doctor or your dentist. Whatever they are, I doubt they are the cause of the odor you have noticed. ...Read more
