If this does not help see a nose doctor. ...Read more

2 days ago, I scratched the outside lining of my lip. When I did a small red pus filled bump formed. Its scabbn ovr now. Was it a cold sore?

Hard to tell: Is it itchy or painful? Were you sick? Have you had cold sores in that area before? The only way to be sure is to have your doctor look at it. Either way it's not serious. If it remains for over a week it was probably a cold sore. The picture is of a typical herpes simplex cold sore. ...Read more

Very sore in ext. Vaginal area I avoid sex and in menopause. Waiting for results from pelvic ultrasound to see if uterus lining thin. Suggestions?

Very sore in ext. Vaginal area I avoid sex and in menopause. Waiting for results from pelvic ultrasound to see if uterus lining thin. Suggestions?

Vaginal Estrogen: When you are in menopause, your body stops making estrogen. Since the vaginal tissue is very sensitive to estrogen, it can become thin and lose its ability to stretch. When you have intercourse, you can actually get micro-tears in the vaginal wall that are painful. These symptoms usually respond to a vaginal estrogen cream or tablet. Don't have intercourse if its painful. Best wishes! ...Read more

How long?: Mouth sores can occur for a variety of reasons. You may have a gum infection, tooth infection or you may have simply traumatized the tissue. If the sore has been there longer than 2 weeks and is not healing on its own, you should have it looked at by a dentist. The dentist may order an x-ray to help with the diagnosis. Healthy gums are not swollen and do not cause the surrounding teeth to be numb. ...Read more
