Can echinacea cause fever, sore throat, sores/  hives on mouth. finger, foot, and genitalia?

Not likely: But this plant is related to ragweed and may cause allergic reactions of various sorts. You probably have something else and need a DR. Echinacea is useless even when honestly dispensed. When commercial preparations are analyzed, they usually contain something other than labeled.

My hand splints for carpal tunnel and sore wrist, what to do?

My hand splints for carpal tunnel and sore wrist, what to do?

Possibly surgery: Conservative treatment for carpal tunnel including splints, anti inflammatory meds and steroids work in the early stages but do not provide great long term relief as the condition worsens. Surgery can provide great relief and if done endoscopically can allow a rather quick return to function with minimal pain compared to traditional techniques. I would recommend an evaluation by a hand surgeon. ...Read more

Down on hands and knees installing flooring. Left hand/ wrist are swollen, pinky finger and palm numb, hand weak, can't open hand completely.

Compression of nerve: which will hopefully be temporary. The usual position for a person installing flooring is to support your weight on your extended wrists. This compresses/stretches the nerves as they travel in your wrist to your hand. What you describe is serious, though. But if you stop injuring it, it should improve in a few hours...up to a day or so. Splint it. If it persists longer than 12-24 hours, go to ER ...Read more
