Question: I have a bruised/bulging vein on the bottom of my foot. I do not know what to do to help heal it. Its hard because when I walk I step on it. So it is sore. I have put some ice on it when I get home from work. Any suggestions to help heal it?

Brief Answer:
Please upload an image.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query. However, I would still need you to upload an image of the sore area in question. Also mention if you are diabetic, whether you have any other ailments and whether you are on any medication. Also mention how long this has been occurring.

As of now I would insist you to use soft soled shoes with silicone padding. I will guide you further after getting your inputs and after checking the image.

I have sent you a picture of the area. Please let me know if you have received it.
I am not a diabetic. The only medication I am on is Nexium.

Would soaking in Epsom Salt help?

Thanks for writing back. Finally I find the image attached. My suggestions for you would be:
* To use soft soled shoes as advised.

* Maintain overall health of your feet.
* You may try applying Thrombophob gel topically and see if it helps.

I m 60 yrs. old, 178lbs and pretty good health. The following symtoms I have a tickle in my throat which leads to a cough watery eyes with pressure, runny nose, clearing throat and sometimes hoarseness. I drink water and eventually stops. I have been to ENT doctor.(which recommended having an endoscopy). I have had an endoscopy, which the Dr. mentioned Barett s esophagus (no cancer). I m on Nexium 40 mg since March but then started feeling a lump in my throat everytime I swallowed. I went back to ENT Dr. (no lump to be seen) but said the symtoms I mentioned sound like LPR Reflux (given a booklet) and yes I have about (4) symtoms. Now I m also on Zantac 150 MG. I don t see much change with all the medicine. I had/have NO SYMTOMS at all of heartburn, acid coming up, burping etc. right from the beginning just a chronic cough which lead to the ENT Dr. which lead to so on so forth. I m leary of staying on any medication for a long period of time, especially PPI s. What possibly do you think my condition may be and what is your thought about the medications. Thank you Patrice

Hello. I am traveling in Cambodia and 5 days ago started to have intense stomach pains. I vomited for the first 4 days non stop. No diarrhea. The stomach pains continued to get worse. Yesterday I went to a Clinic in Cambodia, there the dr did a ultrasound on my abdomen and then diagnosed me with gastritis. He prescribed me Nexium, Phagel susp., and Debridat. It was very difficult to communicate with him, he did not speak english very well. That was 24 hours ago. Since then the pain has gotten even worse. The stomach is incredibly twisted and painful and pain is spreading to my back. The medical services in Cambodia are known for not being that great and I m wondering if this issue is more serious than the dr. s diagnoses. Or if you agree to think that it is simply gastritis, is there anything you can recommend that I take to ease the pain? Please let me know what you think, Thanks,

will Librax help with esophageal spasms? I an currently on 80mg of Nexium and am experiencing chest pain and pain between my shoulder blades. I have been diagnosed with esophagitis, after having a endoscopy that showed inflammation. I have a CT of my chest and an esphogram scheduled for next week. I take Librax when my IBS is acting up. Will it help my symptoms I am having now?
