    What is wrong with my big toe nail (pic)?

    I think I must have injured it several months ago, but I don't really remember. I started noticing that it was detaching from the nail bed and is kind of yellow. It has also stopped growing.

  • Very worried after hitting head?

    I hit the back of my head hard against the pillow and mattress whilst in bed this morning, and I have been very strange, very dopey and slow. I went to the Walk In, where the doctor told me she couldn't see anything wrong but that I'm probably feeling funny from the hit. I'm really scared that... show more

I'm really scared that I've done something permanent and that I'll be like this long term. What should I expect?

  • Do I have to go to the hospital if I cut myself on a knife?

    I was cutting an apple today with a sharp kitchen knife and the blade of the knife slipped and cut my index finger right in the middle of my finger. It kept dripping blood and the blood was dry red. I put pressure on it and immediately used soap and warm water to wash it off. I didn’t use rubbing alcohol though but... show more
    I was cutting an apple today with a sharp kitchen knife and the blade of the knife slipped and cut my index finger right in the middle of my finger. It kept dripping blood and the blood was dry red. I put pressure on it and immediately used soap and warm water to wash it off. I didn’t use rubbing alcohol though but I used soap instead to wash the cut out. I put pressure on it and had to put more than one bandage on the cut. Tonight, it hurts but it stopped bleeding. It just looks awful. The cut looks like it is going to take about 2 months to heal. Should I go to the emergency room or have someone look at it? I mean, I can’t tell if the cut is that deep but it was bleeding a lot when it happened. Do I need stitches? I think knife cuts hurt more than razorblades and than papercuts. Will I be ok if I cut my finger on a knife if I keep a bandage on it? Will I get a disease or sick if I don’t go to the doctor or hospital to get the cut taken care of? You don’t always have to get medical attention for a kitchen knife cut, do you? Knifes aren’t rusty, are they? If I had my tetanus shot within 10 years, will I be fine with a cut? I am not due for another tetanus shot until next year.

  • Should I go doctor?Hamstring bruised is it bad?

    Best answer: If it happened recently and only hurts when touched, it sounds like it is just bruised and should go away. But if it gets worse or you start having any other symptoms, I would definitely see a doctor.

  • Lump under my skin?

    I recently felt a lump on the right side of my groin(?) and right now it seems slightly smaller than a marble but it hurts a bit when pressed. I tried looking it up but I still don't understand. It stays in the same place when I try to move it... Could someone tell me what it could be and if I can treat it or... show more

  • How to make my elbow stop hurting after i fell off my bike?

    Best answer: OK - you need to have x-rays taken of your elbows. Now. I once fell off my bike, went "end over", and I "broke the fall" with my hands. The force of the impact to the pavement went to my elbows. One had a "green stick" fracture. The other had a clean break. Do not hesitate.

    So a couple of days ago I went to the podiatrist and told me I have plantar fascia. I've done some research on it and it said you need surgery? Is that true? Will I need surgery on my foot? I'm a 15 year old.

  • Can someone fully recover after being in a coma?

    Someone I know has been in a car accident and is in hospital in a 'critical but stable' condition. What I want to know is that - is it possible for him to be ok and make a full recovery? He's been in the coma for just over a week. Thanks in advance

  • I still have foot pain from a fall injury almost a year ago. Will this ever go away?

    Best answer: It's possible you tore a ligament. I don't think that would show up on an X-ray if that's how your doctor checked. I think you should go back and specifically ask if they think that could be a possible cause.
