Capillary: Without actually seeing the spot, it's impossible to say for sure, but it may be a ruptured capillary. No serious issue. Anticipate complete resolution in several days. If you are concerned, then getting somebody to look at it is the only way to know for sure what it is. ...Read more

I stab my palm of my hand. Close to the pinky (lt) now my pinky feels like pins in it but I receive the tecnis shot n stiches. Wht can this be?

Maybe nerve injury: It is possible that you injured a digital nerve (that supplies sensation to the little finger.) repair is not an emergency, so I would wait for a week to 10 days to see if the feeling returns (the nerve may just be bruised but not cut.) if not, you should see a hand surgeon and have the nerve repaired by 3 weeks after the injury. ...Read more

I recently had a discharge that looked like skin. It was half the size of my palm. What could this be? Could it be cancerous?

Not cancer: If it was a single piece of tissue- probably a decidual cast. This would be most likely if you are on hormonal contraception or have high Progesterone levels. If there were multiple episodes the tissue was vaginal skin -the condition is vaginal desquamation or sloughing of the vaginal skin- kind of like peeling after a sunburn. It indicates a reaction to something, . ...Read more

I have pain in my left outer thigh about palm size for a few weeks. At times at night it becomes severe. It is warm to the touch. Ideas?

Infection?: It should be evaluated. It is possible that it is cellulitis (an infection of the skin), particularly since it gets warm to the touch. If the area is red, it is even more likely to be an infection and need medication. If there had been a recent injury to the area, it could be a deep muscle bruise, hematoma, etc. Have your doctor take a look at it. ...Read more

Small bite upon waking up, has grown to the size of my palm, leaked clear pus through my pants (leggings), red and warm and itchy. Concern?

Yes: Yes. Is it red hot swollen and painful or only itchy? If it is rapidly growing and has pus coming out of it it needs to be examined, drained, and antibiotics need to be administered. If it is determined to be a bite with no associated cellulitis or furuncle/carbuncle, then anti-inflammatory medication such as dexamethasone or diphenhydramine may suffice as well as topical steroid and hydroxyzine ...Read more
