Does 1 blister, size of pen eraser on finger w/ tiny dots in it, no pain no redness but very itchy sound like eczema, fungus or whitlow? Had 4 days.

Blister: kind of hard to tell, did you have any trauma? are you a dentist and do dental exams using your fingers? is there any puss and erythema around the site? if its growing in size, see a practitioner to be evaluated. whatever you do don't pop it - you will likely cause a wound infection worse than you have. ...Read more

I smashed my finger and immediately swelled and small red dost appeared at the tip of my finger. The bottom of finger is also hard. What should I do?

I smashed my finger and immediately swelled and small red dost appeared at the tip of my finger. The bottom of finger is also hard. What should I do?

Depends: Depending on when you smashed your finger, and how much pain is involved, and injury is involved, will determine what your next step is. So if you've already iced it for awhile, and elevated it and it remains painful, you need to go to a clinic, where the physician can help examine it fully, to see if x-rays are needed or not. Plus, they are capable of doing a small procedure to relieve pressure. ...Read more

Skin irritation: Sounds like without pain and any discomfort - it may be just a mild inflammation of skin/soft tissue bellow your clitoris area. Without rash or any other symptoms - most likely will go away. Be gentle when wiping and communicate with your loved one if you feel any discomfort to modify your sexually activity. protect yourself from STD - if intercourse - use condom. Use good hygiene. ...Read more

Hi I have little red painful dots on my fingers and toes just wondering what they could be. Hurt to touch but under skin?

Derm dashes dots.: My experience with these types of bumps tells me that you can look and look and never find the absolute cause. Many times the condition disappears during a seemingly working treatment only to reappear in the future. I highly recommend that you see a experienced specialist, most likely a dermatologist, to shorten the process of finding a suitable fix. ...Read more

I have a small ganglionic cyst on both of my 4th fingers.  I have read Red Desert Clay helps with eliminating these cysts.  Is that true?

Seeing is believing.: It certainly sounds like this treatment has appeared to help some people with ganglions. The evidence seems to be a little anecdotal, which may not be based on real empirical evidence. But, what the heck, give it a try. If it doesn't work, well, you can always have it excised. ...Read more
