My leg is red and swollen and has big abscess that looks like it's going to burst it hurts I don't have a fever I can't go to the emergency room until morning will I be OK I think it's merssa?

Sun always rises but: The sun always rises, but when? If something is "going to burst" and it's 1 hour until sunrise, waiting until morning may be ok. If the sun just set, sunrise is a long ways off (really, really long if it's winter in the far north)... so ER treatment may be the best choice under those circumstances. ...Read more

Knee pain when bending, knee stiffness and leg tingling back of knee and front of knee are swollen no fever not red its been a month since this started the back of my leg hurts when I walk around any ideas??? I have no insurance so plz help!! .

Recommend Eval: With knee pain lasting a month, swelling and stiffness I would recommend you have the knee looked at. There are several possible causes to your symptoms; some that may be more concerning then others. Your knee may need to be drained (fluid removed). A more thorough history and exam of your knee seems necessary at this point. Consider a virtual consult as a starting point. Hope that helps! ...Read more

I stepped on a piece of glass, cut my foot. Didn't go to the doc. Had td shot. Low grade fever, swollen lymph node under arm past week. What's wrong?

I stepped on a piece of glass, cut my foot. Didn't go to the doc. Had td shot. Low grade fever, swollen lymph node under arm past week. What's wrong?

Mixed message: You describe a weird situation. Is the cut on the foot red, hot, swollen, tender and getting worse? No lymph nodes in the groin? Are you coughing, nauseated, burning on urination...Etc.? A foot wound should have local nodes involved. You may have a virus, or something else going on besides the healing foot cut. If you are not getting better, a doc visit is probably a good idea to sort this out. ...Read more

See a doctor: This has me concerned – I think you have a infection from where you injected those drugs. This can progress, including infection of the bloodstream, with organ dysfunction and possibly death if not treated properly. Sorry to scare you, but you need to get help right away. Doctors are professionals – you should not be judged for drug use – and medical records are private. Hope you get better. ...Read more
