Possibly lice...: Lice start out as eggs, but they can hatch and become long and narrow bugs. That would be the most likely answer, but you really need a dermatology evaluation. Treating it is complicated, because you need to use the right shampoo to kill it (http://www. Ridlice. Com/lice-killing-shampoo. Php), AND you need to properly wash and/or dispose of linens, stuffed animals, blankets, etc. ...Read more

I'm having nose bleed after head injury but not hit in nose, normal?

I'm having nose bleed after head injury but not hit in nose, normal?

Depends: "Head injury" doesn't mean the same thing to doctors as it means to laypeople. But practically speaking, whenever you have an unexplained nosebleed you should have it checked out. The blood may be coming from behind your nose. And even if it's coming FROM your nose, the nasal septum is supplied by 3 arteries, so whatever the cause, you can lose a lot of blood if it's not controlled. ...Read more

I have "kernels" inside my nose that are extremely painful. These bumps are in between the skin and never come to a head. They make it hard to breathe?

Nasal Vestibulitis: If these "kernels" occur right around the nostril openings, it can be a small infection of the nostril hair follicles called nasal vestibulitis. These can be painful and tender bumps from an infected hair follicle. The best treatment and prevention for this is to try bactroban or Mupirocin 2% ointment in the nostrils two to three times a day. ...Read more

My son got head bumped in the nose. It bled for an hour and now he's complaining that its sore when he touches it. Is this normal?

Very common: A big bump to the nose will often cause bleeding. Sometimes a nosebleed is brief; sometimes the clot that forms in the nostrils can continue to ooze for a while. Try to encourage him to leave it alone; the more he fusses with it the more it may ooze. If this is the first time this has happened it's likely no big deal. By tomorrow you might try to clean it out in the bathtub. ...Read more

But you may also have dizziness, nausea, difficulty concentrating, mood swings, etc. TBI is most of the time self-limiting and should go ago within days to weeks. If not, go see a doctor to get a work up like CT of Head. Be careful not to get another head injury. ...Read more
