Posible Infection: A bruise is a hematoma resulting from bleeding into the soft tissues. It is a good medium in which bacteria can live and grow. It is possible, even without a break in your skin, that the hematoma has become infected. The redness and heat are sign of a localized infection. You should have it checked by your primary care physician. ...Read more

Shin is still numb 12 days postop of ACL recon and meniscus trim, very bruised, sore, stiff is this normal? Foot also gets really hot.

Shin is still numb 12 days postop of ACL recon and meniscus trim, very bruised, sore, stiff is this normal? Foot also gets really hot.

Somewhat: Bruises, stiffness, soreness all very normal at this stage. Hot foot and numbness are not normal. However, depending on the incision location, the superficial skin nerves (saphenous most common) may have been cut which will lead to a permanent numb patch on the lateral side if the knee. No big deal. Hot foot and swelling could be a sign of a blood clot. Go see your surgeon and ask these question. ...Read more

I have a bump on my upper right lip that is sore tender to touch. I just had some super hot chilli. The pain is in one area. Is it chill or cold sore?

I have a bump on my upper right lip that is sore tender to touch. I just had some super hot chilli. The pain is in one area. Is it chill or cold sore?

Lip sore: This could be a cold sore? Did it ever blister? Have you ever had cold sores before? If it is a cold sore, it will likely heal in about 2 weeks. It could also be a thermal/chemical burn from the chili pepper capsaicin. Either one should heal within a few weeks. Take it easy on eating anymore hot or spicy foods until it heals. ...Read more

Premenstrual mastalg: I have found that women in their 40s begin to experience more tenderness in their breasts between ovulation and the period. I don't know your age but would guess that is the case since this is a new and concerning change for you. If it persists past the period see your provider. Do a self breast exam also at the onset of the period. ...Read more

If had my primary oral herpes outbreak 3 weeks ago but my neck lymph node is still tender and yesterday I had a sore throat that went away by drinking something hot and the lymph node got swollen again is this normal?

Maybe new problem: Throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). Throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin can help decrease throat pain. ...Read more
