Too long: That seems too long for a rash caused by herpes. If you are putting any ointment on it, stop. Get this checked to found out what is causing it. Use unscented milk soaps only. ...Read more

A few days ago I picked my nose and accidentally pulled a few nose hairs its been feeling sore today,will i get a brain infection (triangle of death)?

Triangle of death: Amazing you know about it. It is rare. If your nose wasn't infected to begin with and you only pulled hair it is unlikely. If you keep irritating the area by touching all the time, however, it could get infected. So, don't! ...Read more

Swollen lymph nodes: It sounds like you have swollen lymph nodes, These can last several months in the absence of an infection. If you feel they are not getting better, I would follow up with your primary care physician as she may need to get blood work and possibly a biopsy to make sure there's nothing else going on ...Read more

Immunodeficiency : I'm worried about your overall health. To have those biopsy findings you mentioned is a concern, now if you have enlarged lymph nodes I wonder if this is connected to your earlier presentation. Hopefully your primary doc is working hard to help you out. I hope u can see an ID doctor as part of it all- I would be very interested to know "what" your immune system is or isn't doing-and know how2 help ...Read more

What is mild prominence of the left femoral head neck junction of the hip in xray? This side usually sore but especially when sleeping on this side.

What is mild prominence of the left femoral head neck junction of the hip in xray?  This side usually sore but especially when sleeping on this side.

Possible impingement: That refers to a possible impingement condition of the hip joint. If you have soreness at the side of your hip when sleeping on that side, then the diagnosis is likely to be a greater trochanteric bursitis, which can usually be treated with steroid injections and/or NSAIDs (i.e. ibuprofen, Aleve). ...Read more

I'm a runner, and my muscles and tendons are getting increasingly sore at the top of my femur on the outside of my leg.  I stretch regularly.  Ideas?

Sorry just noticed: Just realized you said top of femur. If in lower leg my answer. Would stand. Out upper leg could be a bursitis or tendinitis....Even a type of fasciitis. Avoid offending activity for several weeks....Otc antiinflamatories and ortho follow up if conservative measures aren't enough. ...Read more

I am going to have donor egg ivf. I had buserelin 5 w/ks. Since i strated progynova a week ago my pelvic triangle feels very tender. Is this normal?

I am going to have donor egg ivf. I had buserelin 5 w/ks. Since i strated progynova a week ago my pelvic triangle feels very tender. Is this normal?

Maybe not: Progynova is a pro-hormone for estradiol, which is the main natural sex hormone in women. There is no clear reason this medicine should cause pain of any kind, but some reasons why it might. Have you asked this question to the ivf doctor(s) you are working with? A doctor who knows you can likely give a more helpful answer. In my view, "very tender" may not be normal. ...Read more
