I am a nineteen year old female. I have one blister in my mouth on the right anterior pillar. It hurts to swallow. What could be the cause of this? I have no other symptoms and I have never had this happen before. I woke up two days ago with pain in my throat. I assumed it was a sore throat but I noticed that it hurt near the back of my mouth instead of the actual throat. I have not done anything treat the pain except eat a tablespoon of honey before going to sleep.

The most common causes of blisters in the mouth are cold sores and canker sores. Cold sores are due to Herpes Virus infections and are contagious. They can be brought on by stress or illness.

Im 28 and been having dull pain in my lower pelvic area more on my left side but I feel it on my right just not as strong I feel it in my lower back its been a week now and no change any ideas of what it could be?

The most common types of pain in a 28 year old female are genitourinary or musculoskeletal in origin. Menstruation, ovarian cysts, or infections (pelvic or urinary) can all produce the pain you are describing. Injuries or excessive exercise to the hip joint and associated muscles/ligaments can also produce the pain you are describing. . . . → Read More: Im 28 and been having dull pain in my lower pelvic area more on my left side but I feel it on my right just not as strong I feel it in my lower back its been a week now and no change any ideas of what it could be?

I’ve had a bump under the skin of my armpit for a few months but it hasn’t been red or sore. It recently started oozing whitish, greenish puss with an odor. It’s still not red, nor ever really looked like a pimple. What could it be? Maybe from an ingrown hair?

There are a number of causes of bumps in the armpit. That it recently opened up and started oozing purulent fluid is suggestive of an abscess or pilonidal cyst (infected hair follicle). Treatment is with an incision and drainage followed by a course of antibiotics.

I fell down on friday and gauged my elbow. A small piece of meat was hanging and I cleaned it with peroxide adn neosporin. I broke it open tonight and clear bloody fluid drained out. I woke up two days ago with mod. to sev. pain in my forearm ext. I am wondering if this is from an infection and how severe it could get. I have no insurance and no money so going to the doctor would have to be damn near life and death.

From what you are describing, you could have an infection of the soft tissue; the severity of infection depends on your immune system and the type of bacteria. With increasing bacterial resistance, neosporin is less and less effective at treating local wound infections.

I’ve been having headaches/migraines for about 10 years(26 years old now). The frequency of them vary from anywhere between once every few months to twice a week. I’ve gone to several doctors and neurologists and have tried all sorts of migraine medications with not much success. I have not had any tests run such as an MRI or CATSCAN. I have kept a journal to try to find what may trigger these: food, lack of sleep, stress, caffeine, menstral cycle, etc. I have noticed that the symptoms are almost always the same. I normally wake up with them. I have no sensitivity to light, however I’m very sensitive to sound. The pain is always in my left eye brow, my left eye, behind my left eye, and bone of my left eye socket, and the top of both the bottom and top of my teeth (only on my left side). I also get nauseaus and vomit with them. I am planning on going to a dentist now because I am thinking now that it may be TMJ. I have been diagnosed with PCOS and anovulation. At first I thought it may be related to hormonal imbalances. Any suggestions I would greatly appreciate.

Your symptoms are indeed consistent with migraines even without sensitivity to light. Keeping a journal of triggers/activities is an excellent way to determine the cause of your migraines. A CT scan may not be helpful but if your physician suspects an intracranial lesion, an MRI may be the best test.
