Hello, One week ago I scraped the back of my knee joint on bramble bushes. The cuts bled, but I cleaned them up. One week later, I am having redness and inflammation as well as soreness and pain. I have put an antibiotic ointment on the area and bandaged it up. Should I seek treatment from a doctor? Could this be an infection and something to be concerned about? Thank you.

Hello-- We have a 5 year old boy who cut his eyebrow open 3 weeks ago-- The doctor was able to use glue, but now the glue is stuck in the eyebrow and it looks like if we pulled it he won t have an eyebrow left-- will the eye brow grow and should we just let the glue disolve naturally or try to get it off?

Hello, I had a staghorn stone removed from my kidney 15 years ago. Earlier this year my doctor said my kidney function was low and I needed to drink more water. In the last few weeks I noticed a swelling the size of my palm right below my bra on my back. Wondering if it could be fluid build up because I have not been drinking enough water

Hello, Roughly around three weeks ago i was tumbling in my front yard. Haven t done so in a while. Nothing seemed to bother me that day. I woke up with my back causing me so much pain.The Feeling was in the middle of the spine. Feels like It constantly needs to be popped. About a week later i start having horrible pains in my rib area. Right under my breast. So i finally go to the doctor the take xrays of my lungs to make sure its not a collapsed lung. Nothing found. I can t sleep at night. I find it more comfortable sleeping on the floor. And sometimes in the middle of the night i have so much pain in the back/rib area i feel the need to get up and vomit.The MRI on my spine is next..?
