Should be okay: if you can walk then its likely not fractured. the bruising is from the impact and will take 5 to 10 days to go away as it settles down to your ankle. numbness should also resolve on its own. as comfort allows increase your activity. if it gets worse, you should have xray. ...Read more

Broke my foot last Friday. There was no swelling or bruising. tonight I noticed a large blue bruise in the area of the break. Gone to work. bad idea?

What Fracture ?: A broken foot can describe a lot of things. There was no swelling or bruising for 6 days. I can only assume there was no or minimal pain, since you did not mention it. Just how bad could it be broken? One way to find out is to have the foot evaluated to identify the total extent of the injury. If it is broken, to any extent, it has to be stabilized, most commonly by a cam walker. Now, you decide. ...Read more

My ankle keeps uncontrollably twitting swelling up and going blue. What can I do for this?

Ankle swelling: For ankle swelling resting is important but probably the hardest to do, icing around the area, compression with comfortable ace-bandage, and elevation. Taking antiinflammatory medication (advil, ibuprofen, motrin, etc) can be helpful the first few weeks after to help decrease pain and swelling. Also, getting over counter ankle bracing may help. ...Read more

I have a bug bite that is circular, swelling a little bit, sensitive to touch, light red in color but with a dark red dot in the middle. What is it?

I have a bug bite that is circular, swelling a little bit, sensitive to touch, light red in color but with a dark red dot in the middle. What is it?

No particular bug: Bug bites are rarely unique to a specific insect. Flea bites are small and have little clear vesicles and extreme itching but this is not unique to fleas either. This lesion could be a sting or a bite, it is impossible to say. Watch for signs of infection: pus, increasing pain, redness & see doc if that happens. If numbness, tingling or severe pain,or fever, head to the ER. Tetanus shots current? ...Read more
