Will I definitely tear when the baby's head comes out?

No: No. I would ask that a routine episiotomy not be performed. There is a chance that you will not tear. Even if you tear the size is usually smaller than if an episiotomy is cut. ...Read more

Will the skin tear when giving child birth?

Will the skin tear when giving child birth?

It could: A lot depends on the size of the baby, the size of the head, how far along you are, and the size of your vaginal opening. Also the presentation of the baby and the angle of the head. Many women tear, or a tear is created using an episiotomy to avoid further tearing. Mostly it's a small tear, but even large ones can be repaired.

Can you tell if it is reasonable to let the meniscus heal itself as skin tears will?

Can you tell if it is reasonable to let the meniscus heal itself as skin tears will?

Usually won't heal: The meniscus is a 'shock absorber' made of cartilage that sits inside the knee. There is one on the inside and one on the outside of the knee. As opposed to your skin which has good blood supply to it, the meniscus has very poor blood supply. For this reason the meniscus usually does not heal. If you have a torn meniscus and pain you should see your local orthopedist to discuss options. ...Read more

I'm 59 and my skin on my forearms tears and bleeds easily. Do you know plausible causes?

I'm 59 and my skin on my forearms tears and bleeds easily. Do you know plausible causes?

Easy bruising: As you age skin is thinner ( less fat) so less protective effect on capillaries when there is even minor trauma . Alos medications like ASA, coumadin, (warfarin) blood thinners, fish oil, Vit E, ginko, ginger , steroids,estrogens make it easier to bleed or compromise the integrity of the skin .Conditions like liver disease, low platelets, vasculitis , B12, Vit K ,zinc deficiency affect bleeding. ...Read more

I have a tear in my skin, the tear is between my butt a little from the top (lower back). I was told this is a fissure. How can this be stopped?

Control moisture: The fissure above your gluteal cleft sometimes forms from excessive moisture which then causes skin irritation and breakdown . Consider purchasing some type of barrier cream to protect that skin. An example would be diaper cream. Keeping that area dry for a few weeks might help. If not, please see your doctor ...Read more

In August of 2015 hit the back part of his head really hard and it is still hurting, to the point he wakes up in tears. He has white pimple things all?

In August of 2015 hit the back part of his head really hard and it is still hurting, to the point he wakes up in tears. He has white pimple things all?

It's hard to imagine: that one could have head trauma a year ago, still hurting to the point of tears, and not have had a neurological work up. Skull fracture, concussion, subdural hematoma, etc all should have been excluded by now. Head pain at this point now may not be related to original trauma. It almost sounds like condition now, with "white pimple things", might be shingles. Return to Doc for further eval. ...Read more

My friends  shoulders hurt when he reaches behind his back, head, and when he sleeps on his shoulders. Is it common for rotator tear in both shoulders?

Complex Joint: The shoulder is a complex joint, & many conditions/ injuries (rotator cuff injury, bursitits, tendonitis, labral pathology, impingement, etc) can cause pain/ weakness, especially when lifing the arm. Some injuries of the soulder occur due to acute injury and some are from overuse. I suggest he see an orthopedist for a complete exam. http://drmarkgalland.com/category/shoulder/. ...Read more

Theres a small parting of the skin just at the tip of my penis is this normal and more importantly what is it exactly also why did it tear.

Theres a small parting of the skin just at the tip of my penis is this normal and more importantly what is it exactly also why did it tear.

Maybe: Without an exam, it is tough to say why or even what the tear is. At times, when the penis gets erect and if traumatized through rough sex or activity like "dry humping" etc, it may certainly cause the skin to get irritated and or even tear. Best to get the area examined and definitively diagnosed, so it can be treated appropriately. Good luck to you. ...Read more
