I have an inflamation of swelling and pain if bumped

I have an inflamation of swelling and pain if bumped or touched a certain way on the cuticle area of my right index finger. I have soaked in epsom salt as well as domeboro solution daily as well as applying mupirocin usp. 2 per cent . The condition is very slowly improving but this has been going on for months. Is this the right treatment ?

3 weeks after using Efudex cream on my nose, I started getting hives, no where in particular on the bottom side of my forearms, on the top of my feet to the extent that I wanted to scratch my skin off, lumps & bumps would appear. The area would welt up and inflame in no particular place. If I stood all day my quads would inflame welts or lumps would appear, my knees would ache so bad I couldn t stand. If I rested my arms on chair rests for any extended period of time the pressure points would welt up. The same would happen to my feet if I rested them on chair runners. If I bump myself or even get a sore throat it hurts way more (heaps) more then it did before. Pressure points are the worst. Seems I cant lean on anything for to long and it starts to ache. One particular time I swelled ached and itched that bad a doctor injected pethidine in my leg. The injection hurt so much and around the needle hole swelled up about 10- 12cm and raised up 3mm and was hot. Today 6 years later I still get mild reactions, aches, no welts but little red spots about 4mm in diameter might appear for no particular reason, say if some sparks from a grinder hit my under arm it will get itchy and hive up a little. My legs get restless at night from standing a lot. Even typing this my fore arm muscles are aching. I m not saying it is efudex but I had lots of test and its like they gave up and put it down to efudex. I don t wish to put up with this, so any advise would be great. Thanking you heaps Mark

Hi. My son complained last week that he bumped his tooth on the floor at nap time in school. I didn t make much of it. But now, a week later, he is still complaining that his tooth hurts, and there is what appears to be red swelling on his gum above the front left tooth. There is also a tiny pimple like thing on his upper lip and there was a similar white pimple on his tongue earlier this morning but is now gone. He doesn t have a fever and is mostly fine other than the fact that the gum looks inflamed and he is bothered by it when he eats harder foods. I ve been trying to find a dentist but nobody appears available to see him over the weekend. Is this an emergency? What could it be? what do I do? Is it okay to wait till Monday or should I go to urgent care?

I got a small cut like a paper cut after swimming in a pool a few days ago and the next day it was red and swollen so I cleaned it with alcohol and put on antibiotic ointment and a bandage which I have been repeating twice daily. The redness and swelling have gone away but at on end of the cut is a bump that is painful to tue touch. It doesn t seem to have any fluid in it and I am fairl certain that no foreign object got in. What could the bump be and should I go to a doctor?
