Brief Answer: Consult an orthopaedician. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. From description it seems to be soft tissue injury . Large bump might be due to haematoma formation(collection of blood). You need an x-ray to rule out any bony injury. I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance.Beside icing , you can take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin to reduce pain and inflammation. Avoid putting weight and rest well. I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query. Take care

Shouldn't I see surgeon? I never heard about orthopaedician. Should I use jaquzi with Epsom salt? What about massage? I also put propolis in this bump. What do you think? Thanks

Brief Answer: Do not use any of these things. Detailed Answer: Hi, You can consult a surgeon. Do not use any of these things. Do not massage the area. These might aggravate the condition.Instead of these, do icing over the affected part. Hope the information was helpful, if you have any further queries I am happy to answer, if no kindly close the query.

My daughter has been twice to her doctor - the first time diagnosed as pharangytis and prescribed anti-inflammatory tablets and medicine and told to boost her immune system with propolis, royal jelly and vitamin C. She has a coating on her tongue and what seems now to be an enlarged tonsil and mouth full of mucus on waking. Last week she developed tiny splits on her inner cheeks which healed by themselves. She revisited the dr as she was worried she had thrush in her mouth. Her dr said no and gave her no treatment. This has been going on for a month now and although the soreness of the throat has gone she has developed a cold and is fed up of the coating on her tongue and the mucus. Can you suggest what she should do and what it might be?
