My ear got pierced two days ago and it now has a purple ring around it. I really don't want it to close up. Is it the marker they used to dot it?

Exam necessary: It is hard to say what is causing this purple ring without examining it. It could be from the marker or from bleeding and a possible infection. I suggest you have your ear examined at a clinic as soon as possible to be on the safe side. Treatment may be necessary. ...Read more

My wife has several misquito bites with white dots in the middle with a dark red ring surrounded by a lighter red ring. They are also painful.?

Tick Bite: Could they possibly be tick bites? Look up on google tick bite red ring and compare them. Has she been out in a heavily wooded area? Ticks bites need attention quickly because the tick could carry Lymes disease. When caught and treated early it is usually not a big problem, but if not teated early can be fatal. I would go to the doctor ASAP and have them check it out. ...Read more

What would be the side effects of nuva rings coming out two years later after use? I stopped using nuva ring about two years ago and already began using the patch right after, but yesterday two of the rings came out... My boyfriend found them after provid

I: I have never heard of this before and I am not quite sure of any adverse effects of leaving them in so long. However, the ring has hormone in it that only lasts about one cycle (3 weeks) therefore if left in longer there is likely no hormone left in the ring. This would be confirmed by you continuing to get a regular period.
Regardless, you should see your doctor for an evaluation and documentation that this occurred.
Take care. ...Read more

For two days, one of my big toes has been feeling like there was a band-aid or a ring on it. It doesn't hurt, but it feels weird. What's going on?

For two days, one of my big toes has been feeling like there was a band-aid or a ring on it. It doesn't hurt, but it feels weird. What's going on?

I was on nuva ring for about two months and I've been wanting to get pregnant for the past month, would being on nuva ring effect me getting pregnant?

I was on nuva ring for about two months and I've been wanting to get pregnant for the past month, would being on nuva ring effect me getting pregnant?

Yes: Nuvaring is a form of contraception or birth control. As long as you continue to use it, your chances of getting pregnant are pretty low. So if you want to get pregnant, then you need to remove the ring. Make sure your doc knows that you're no longer using it. Also start taking a pre-natal vitamin to minimize risk of spinal tube defects. ...Read more

I have a lot of white flaky rings on my pelvic around the base of my hair and two small bumps I have shaved a while back and now my hair growing back?

I have a lot of white flaky rings on my pelvic around the base of my hair and two small bumps I have shaved a while back and now my hair growing back?

This is not unusual: Just like shaving anywhere, the hair follicles can become irritated and inflamed afterwards and the red bumps are likely associated with hair growing back. This is common. Make sure you shave (carefully!) with a clean blade, rinse after each stroke, exfoliate gently afterward, and don't use fragrance powders/lotions. OTC cortisone cream can help with redness/bumps. Stay well:) ...Read more

I just noticed what looks like an insect bite on my face. A small dot, a white patch surrounding it then a big red ring around it. What is it?

Good Luck. ...Read more
