TSS from shaving? Cut my leg shaving and won't stop bleeding. cleaned with alcohol and held pressure. bandaged. help :(
Hold pressure: In general a shaving cut shouldn't be too deep. If you just hold firm continuous pressure without letting up on it for at least 5-10 minutes the bleeding should stop, if you don't have an underlying problem with your clotting ability or aren't taking any medications that would interfere with your clotting factors. Toxic shock syndrome is unlikely to occur within an hour of a shaving cut. ...Read more

Nail bruising: After trauma to nail, it one can get a pooling of blood under the nail (subungual hematoma) which gives the nail a purple/maroon discoloration. If injury is recent and there is pain, please see dermatologist right away. It may be necessary to drain the blood from under nail. Whether nail will be lost depends on how much trauma and how much blood presses on junction between nail plate and bed. ...Read more
Cuts bleeding: It depends on the length and depth of the laceration. First aid includes ice, elevation and compression for a minimum if 7-10" so that your body has the chance to clot whatever is bleeding. Do not check and recheck during those minutes as it stops the pressure. If it bleeds despite the above measures, then you should seek medical care. Also go if numbness, deep cut or later red, weeping wound. ...Read more

Cut index finger with sharp knife yesterday it has not closed or scabbed not bleeding red around & inside tender cause?Pcos htn lisinoprilhctz provera (medroxyprogesterone)
Probably not.: Depends on where you cut it and how you treated it. Nerves, arteries and veins on the sides. Close the wound as well as possible and leave it un-used for 2 to 3 days. It takes about that long for your body to create a working closure to the skin. It will be easy to re-open for a week or so. It is unliklely for the issues you were concerned about to affect this. ...Read more

3 days ago, I accidentally cut part of my fingernail, exposing skin. Bit red, no bleeding or pain. do I need to keep covered until nail grows back?
To prevent trauma: If three days, body makes a protective cover for a small wound. You may keep a band-aid on to avoid trauma to the wound. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
Fingering, masturbation, no bleeding, but finger goes deep inside, tried checking hymen by putting a blunt pencil, goes only upto 2 inches..Hymen broken?
Difficult to know: The hymen is a remnant of the tissue that was part of the vagina, before the vagina changed from being solid to being a tunnel, during embryological development. Girls who have never had intercourse can use tampons because the hymen stretches. Only about 50% of women will bleed the first time they have vaginal sex. I would not recommend putting objects like a pencil into your vagina. ...Read more
