I have a some kind of bite on my leg, try so hard not to tense on picking at it or itch it. Each time the wounds open it bleeds. Now there white ring.
First of all you need to take the initiative to not scratch. I know easier said than done. You can put alcohol on it and it will burn but will stop the itch as an old home remedy. A much better one is to pick up some benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream or hydrocortisone cream to help the itch. However since this has progressed you need to have the lesion checked to see what the white ring is.
Best wishes. ...Read more
I have a wound on my inner thigh that is hard to cover and is easy to open further. What can I do to help heal it?
Get help: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation (red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read more

Unlikely, but see Dr: Unlikely. It usually takes considerable blunt chest trauma to tear the aorta: Such as in an automobile crash with sudden deceleration. The consequences are life threatening requiring immediate attention. It's possible that you injured your chest wall resulting in some intermittent derangement that's causing your pain. For peace of mind see your physician for an exam. ...Read more
