Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to reassure you that the symptoms in your child do not suggest any serious XXXXXXX injury to brain.

The most likely cause of his pain in the forehead could be external injury to soft tissues. This could take a few weeks to recover well.

If pain is troublesome, analgesics such as ibuprofen may be used.

If the symptoms do not subside in the next week or so, you can take him to the doctor and get a CT scan of head done.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology) XXXXXXX Consultant Neurologist

i am almost 43, female, 170 pounds,having an elective surgery in 3 weeks, i only take birth control pills (9 years now) and tylenol/ibuprofen when on period, recently took for several months-over the counter (benadryl, allergy stuff for my severe allergies- round the clock) Prior to that was sick with needing antibiotics/inhaler for terrible cold, WELL- ALL MY LABS are beautiful, all normal. THE ONLY ONE slightly elevated (depending on the lab - ONE LAB range shows ALT/SGPT of 30-65/ another shows 7-56) so these would make MY ALT of 49 NORMAL.But the lab I went to show 2-45 making my 49 only 4 points over. I DO NOT DRINK, I am thinking since ALL MY OTHER labs are PERFECT esp the ones in relation to liver correlation, that perhaps the meds have done this?? I have had negative results for Hep B and HIV (drawn during my last pregnancy in 2010) so I am thinking perhaps this is elevated due to the over the counter stuff I took?? WILL THEY DENY my surgery over 4 lousy points if my HEALTH/HISTORY is otherwise PERFECT. based on the other posts, I feel perhaps it is medication. I can NOT see my Primary doc not clearing me for surgery just for 4 points.? thank you for your time

Hello doc, i ad a itch on my right breast its the outer lower side of the breast. i later found it became kinda sore , cause the area around it was red, and hard. ( i first thought it was a boil) cause it has an head and looked like pores will be coming out. Went to see a physician who did not even check it cos i told her it was a boil. She said i did not not need any prescription apart from vit.C . That i should allow my immune to fight it. She also gave me ibuprofen for the pain. I did t use ibuprofen cause i feel it s too strong. but took the vit.c . When the pain became unbearable, i had to stop wearing a bra. Went to a GP yesterday who prescribed Ciprotab 500mg. Cause he said it s a fungi infection. ( The thing looks like an open wound now.) Do you think ciprotab is okay? Cause i still feel a lot of pain. Although he told me to also use paracetamol for the pain too.( I just started the medication last night ).THanks
