about a week ago, I got a small cut just

about a week ago, I got a small cut just under my knee when shaving. It was just mildly tender for a few days. What you would expect from a small cut. Then two days ago, I noticed more tenderness. Yesterday, there was a small whitehead, which I drained. Since then, it has become more and more red, firm, and extremely tender. It is now about 5 inches in diameter (the original cut was tiny). I drew a line around it and the redness is spreading beyond the borders. No fever. I hate to go to urgent care for nothing, but wondering if this is something I should be concerned enough about to go to urgent care this evening after work. Wait and see? or get it checked?

Hi, I accidentally hit my head quite hard on the edge of a big wooden cupboard almost a week ago. There was a small cut that has healed, and lump which I iced - and is now very little. However, I have had a constant headache ever since and often dizziness for a minute even time I get up from sitting. Is there anything else I can do. It was my left forehead high right below the hairline. Thank you

I got a small cut a couple weeks ago and it has grown to the size of a quarter since then. It looks like something is eating away at my skin, it s mostly a bright red color and some white speckles all over. It oozes yellow liquid a lot. Now whenever i get a small cut it s slowly turning into these weird oozing patches.

Hello , I am 32 weeks pregnant and was trying to get my clothes from the closet and the belt fell and its buckle part hit my tummy hardly and i have a small cut mark , I am not sure of this would have impacted my baby. I am worried, however when there is a loud noise outside the baby reacts to it by moving intensly. when this happened there was no movement immediately ; she just moved after the sometime; does it mean there was no impact when the buckle hit my tummy? Thanks
