Yes, you should return to have your boil re-evaluated. It is likely that you had a subcutaneous abscess. The purpose of a packing is to wick out the abscess fluid (containing bacteria, inflammatory cells, and dead tissue) as the wound heals. If your skin closes before the abscess has been fully drained, then it is . . . → Read More: i have a boil that was lanced the packing fell out it won’t drain and its closing up while continuing to swell should i go back and have them look at it again?

One of the children I’m (female, 18) babysitting (male, 11 years) flipped and hit his head on the street. He couldn’t stand at first and I literally had to hold him up and carry him so he could lay in the car. He eventually was able to stumble to the house and put ice on his head. It’s been awhile and he still has to hold onto things to walk. He says his getting worse but the nausea he was feeling is a hit better but is still there. Only one pupil dilates when light is flashed in eyes. Does this means he has a concussion and if so what should I do?

Anyone with suspected intracranial trauma should be taken to the hospital immediately. The injury to the child you are babysitting qualifies as intracranial trauma. The injury is serious because of his inability to stand at first. In addition, the symptom of only one pupil dilating is suggestive of far more than intracranial trauma – inability . . . → Read More: One of the children I’m (female, 18) babysitting (male, 11 years) flipped and hit his head on the street.

You should go to the emergency room or your doctor and get an X-ray of your facial bones to determine if there are any fractures particularly to the mandible and orbital bones. Fractures of facial bones may require surgical intervention to restore alignment and prevent additional nerve or soft tissue damage.

Lyme disease is a tick-borne disease most often transmitted by the Ioxdes scapularis (otherwise known as the deer tick). The risk of a tick-borne disease is negligible if the tick has not been attached. The risk is less than 1% if the tick has attached but has not been engorged with blood (swollen) and feeding . . . → Read More: http://www.lymediseaseaction.org.uk/images/i02/l/03.jpg Above is a link to a tick I removed today.

From what you are describing it appears as if you have asthma. Since your physician retired, you should seek to find a new primary care physician to manage your asthma instead of going to the emergency room.

If you are using your inhaler more than two times per week or are experiencing frequent nighttime . . . → Read More: i recently had my doctor retired on me i was giving an albuteral inhaler for coughing it was persitant cough for two months after the second month i start to wheeze the doctors never give me refils the cough drops and syrups do not work it is like a chronic cough. my family has a history of asthma, even the emergency room doctors wont give me the inhalers, its embarassin and seems like the inhaler is the only thing that helps what can i do not smoke
