I had 2 cortisone injections in my back. 3 weeks apart. the last one was three weeks ago. 2 weeks ago, I have symptoms of moon face. I want to know if it will go away and how long will it take.

Moon facies is a symptom of high dose corticosteroid use in which the face swells up. How fast it takes your moon facies to resolve depends on the strength of the cortisone injections and if you are on any additional corticosteroids. Once off steroids it typically takes months to years for moon facies to resolve. . . . → Read More: I had 2 cortisone injections in my back. 3 weeks apart. the last one was three weeks ago. 2 weeks ago, I have symptoms of moon face.

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.

My 8 year old daughter was playing in the woods. She found an insulin syringe. She pricked her finger and scraped the side of her hand, drawing blood. We washed with antibacterial soap, perioxide and used clorox wipes. We went immediately to the dr and they administred blood tests. What are the chances she can get HIV?

HIV is known to be very sensitive to fluctuations in temperature and moisture. Typically, the virus can only survive outside of the body for a few hours. CDC studies show that drying even high concentrations of the virus can virtually eliminate any infectious particles within hours. In addition, insulin syringes are not typically used to . . . → Read More: My 8 year old daughter was playing in the woods. She found an insulin syringe.

My girlfriend recently suffered from Sun Poisoning. Her face swelled up pretty bad and she developed a scab on her cheek. Her swelling and scabbing have began to subside but now she is complaining of a severe pain under her armpit. Is this related?

Sun poisoning is another term for a severe sun burn causing symptoms such as skin blistering, pain, swelling, headaches, and dehydration. A severe pain under the armpit is not one of the known symptoms of a severe sun burn. If the pain does not subside or worsens, she should seek medical attention.

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.
