I had juverderm applied on my labionasal areas. One side of my face developed necrosis and then healed. I have redness. How long will redness last?

Keep the scar out of the sun to prevent it from becoming darker than the surrounding skin. 30 sun block, wide brimmed hats, etc. Good luck. ...Read more

What causes temporal pain on one side head. It doesn't hurt bad unless I touch it. Should I be concerned? I am 60. No bumps or redness on area.

PainInTheTemple, Oy!: At your age it could be an inflamed temporal artery, which is a marker for inflammation to deeper arteries, some of which could affect your eye and eyesight. So best to go see your doctor right away. A blood test could give a fairly good answer. If it's not that (called "temporal arteritis) then your doctor could try and figure out something else with a sigh of relief that it wasn't arteritis. ...Read more

See your GP: While you're at it, see your eye doc, too, either Ophthalmologist or Optometrist to evaluate your eye (watch out for double vision and/or change in visual sharpness). Perhaps you have a sinus infection but I'd also be worried about spread to your eye socket since your "eye feels funny". If you can't get in to your GP, go to your nearest A&E. ...Read more
