Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
You have injured your toe badly may be with a crushed phalanx. The coming out of fluid on pressure indicates that there is some infection inside. You need to have an X-ray of your toe along with proper dressing after drainage of the fluid. Antibiotics and inj. tetanus are also needed.

i have eczema (diagnosed 2 years ago) but I am not sure is that, my doctor prescribed Triamcinolone Acetonide Ointment 0.1%. I usually use it when I have red itchy bumps mostly on my legs(front part of lower legs) and on different parts of back. It usually have to apply ointment for about 2 weeks and then it goes away. I got those red itchy bumps on 1 leg and i applied the ointment and it started to and then i have developed what seems like lots of red pimples that hurt and have little pus , where I applied the ointment. In the past I developed pimple with pus and the doctor said it was a side effect, but this time i developed 10+ and they hurt, my skin is red, burning and hurts. What should i do? Obviously I stopped putting the ointment and my doctor office is closed, so I cant call him. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I fell from my bike about 2 months ago and bruised my knee. I had taken a tetanus. The wound was looking to be healing well, it formed a scab and the scab went naturally. But now my wound is like a small bump, which usually has purple to maroon color. Is it a keloid scar? It s itchy around the wound. Anyway to remove it?

I had nail puncture wound and went to the doc. Two days later (today) and got a tetanus shot. Now I have a horrible headach and when I went to the bathroom to have a bowl movement I saw bright red blood on the toilet paper and it looked like I started my period 2 weeks early. So I wiped my vagina and no blood so I wiped my rear again and there was blood. When I got up it looked like a lot of blood but I know it looks worse in water. Now I'm dizzy and my headach is worse. Is this from the tetanus shot? My feces were I guess what you'd call type 1 round and smaller, and they didn't hurt.

22 mo old baby cut foot on old metal footlocker in our house last night. Previously unvaccinated. I am considering taking him in for his Dtap shot, but I have strep throat and he probably will come down with it soon in midst of his tetanus shot reactions. Tetanus shot?
