AintNothinLikeThReal: Read "Portnoy's Complaint" by Philip Roth. And don't worry, that skin heals fast if you don't irritate it again. Use a mild soap and put a thin layer of any antibiotic ointment on it (just don't be tempted to use that ointment for anything else, at least for a while!). Then think of switching to a chamois cloth--or waiting for a real vagina. ...Read more

I have a bunion on my left foot skin has some redness and inflammation not painful. but sore when shoe is on causing friction. any suggestions?

Bunions: Bunions are a deformity that is caused when the big toe drifts towards the lesser toes, creating a painful bump on the inside of your foot. Unlike most conditions of the foot and ankle, bunions have limited options for conservative treatment. Shoe changes, padding, and anti-inflammatory medications are ways to temporarily manage the pain associated with bunions. ...Read more

Skin infection: did you actually see a spider bite you? If not, the bump you describe is likely an abscess. In any event, it should be evaluated by a physician to determine the appropriate course of treatment (I & D +/- antibiotics). ...Read more

Not really: Symptoms of deep blood clots (DVT) are often vague: a deep ache, swelling, feeling like a "muscle strain," not typically sensitivity to light touch like you describe. Blood clots in superficial veins usually cause a red, warm, tender cord that can be felt just below the skin surface. ...Read more

Does 1 blister, size of pen eraser on finger w/ tiny dots in it, no pain no redness but very itchy sound like eczema, fungus or whitlow? Had 4 days.

Does 1 blister, size of pen eraser on finger w/ tiny dots in it, no pain no redness but very itchy sound like eczema, fungus or whitlow? Had 4 days.

Blister: kind of hard to tell, did you have any trauma? are you a dentist and do dental exams using your fingers? is there any puss and erythema around the site? if its growing in size, see a practitioner to be evaluated. whatever you do don't pop it - you will likely cause a wound infection worse than you have. ...Read more

I have been shortness of breath for a few days and now am having pain in my calf. No swelling or redness does this sound like a blood clot?

NO: First, the type of blood clot that goes into the lungs usually arises in the pelvis, not leg. Second, the main symptom of a leg clot is swelling (which may also be sore). Finally, you need risk factors: birth control pills, recent surgery, recent fracture, long trip with immobilization, cancer, or a clotting disorder. ...Read more

Had a hip muscle injury 6 months back, not yet cured. Suddenly I am hearing painless cracking and popping sounds in my joints, no swelling or redness.

Am 5 weeks pregnant started having cramp in left back calf muscle no swelling no redness. Hip always hurts on left side and have a cyst on left ovary. Does it sound like dvt?

DVT and pregnancy.: Your symptoms do not sound like DVT but there are 2 things that will help to solve the problem--a venous ultrasound of the leg veins which is very accurate for DVT or a d-dimer blood test which is significant for no clots if negative. ...Read more
