This shit is so painful. I absent mindedly tore up my leg with my fingernails a few days ago, not realizing how deep I was getting, and the cuts got infected. I've been draining the pus out, cleaning it with face wash pads (diluted in water so there's not as much alcohol) and keeping it under bandages with neosporin as much as possible. I'm poor as fuck and my physician is like a 2 hour bus ride away so I really want to avoid that if I can. But it legit fucking hurts to put weight on this fucker, like I take a step the wrong way and my head is swimming and I can't think. It's gotten marginally better since yesterday but like damn it's pretty bad. What else do I do to take care of it? When should I panic and see a real doc?
Sorry for shitting up your board guys, thanks for any input

I actually called my dad right after making this thread (he's a veterinarian) and he pretty much ordered me to go to a doctor immediately and gave me $100. They put me on two antibiotics (but no pain meds even though I could barely walk into their office and asked like 3 times)

I have been feelin really sick from taking my normal meds + antibiotics but I have multivitamins I will def try and take now. The doctor told me to keep the wound open to the air when I could actually but that sounded fishy to me. My leg is way less terrifying already though. Thanks dude.

Great to hear. Going it on your own is just plain stupid. The doc's right that you should keep it open unless it has dehisence or bleeding lots. Covering is good in that initial stage. The idea is to let oxygen and sunlight help. Dunno why they didn't give even simple analgesics; do you appear as a junkie to them? You gotta whinge about the pain but they should really ask..

Another pic? Would be helpful to know. I'd like to know what makes you pick; I've had to treat people with really bad habits of tearing their fingers up and I understand anxiety quite well. Antecedent prevention is what I focus on. At least now you know, though.

I kinda felt like they thought I was a junkie, at least the way they brushed me off made me think so. I hobbled into the clinic wearing pj pants and a tank and I have a couple other scabs so I guess I get it.
I'm not a tweaker or anything like that. I just kinda obsess over "clear" skin. Any abnormality I try to remove with force. I have a tendency to squeeze pimples past the point of productivity too, to the point where I'm just bruising my skin and making it bleed. Idk. My mom used to pinch my arms to unclog pores a lot when I was little.

Honestly hard to say it's better from that picture, maybe the light is better so I can see more but it will take a while anyway. Anyway if you say you have a 10/10 pain then they gotta give you tramadol or something better than aspirin. I'm not for pain relief anyway; it's just a signal of distress and you should monitor all aspects of your injury. Probably good to avoid a lot of walking if it hurts, but try to do some light stretching/lounging in the sun and keep fluids up.

I work with special needs children/young people with anxiety and it's a nightmare when they get an injury. They obsess over picking and we have to monitor them frequently to ensure they don't peel off plasters or re-open wounds. I don't want to sound like your mother, it's just that if you want to clean off any abnormalities, use tools that you can wipe down and remove more exactly with. Nails are blunt and trap dirt, which is why it got infected, most likely. Also, lance your pimples from the side and gently roll out the pus. Use steam to open pores. Self care is a wonderful thing to practise on yourself and this habit of yours just needs some refinement.


Chlamydia and its possiblity of being contracted via oral by The Man who received his first STD - Sun, 21 Aug 2016 19:26:21 EST ID:6rjFzfY/ No.54414 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Hi /med/
I've recently contracted Chlamydia from a woman through unprotected sex. I've only had one long term partner prior to her, who has gotten tested recently and perfectly fine. So this exonerates me from being patient zero but she's been with two other people since being tested in May and claims to have used protection with both of them. Is it possible to get chlamydia via condom? This story just seems to fishy and I have no idea why arrows are being pointed at me when my previous partner has tested negative (after being with me and only me) and so have I. She also claims to have received oral from one partner, but I doubt she contracted it then. There's only theoretical risk from pharynx to vagina, am I correct? I need help with this game of Clue.

>sitting kills you
>even if you're otherwise physcially active
>but you more than likely earn a living while sitting

What do? Slavsquat? Wikipedia claims prolonged squatting isn't good either, since you get knee problems and some nerve compression in the hamstrings (I think). Standing obviously isn't it either, I hear all about side-effects of doing that all day. Walking makes precision go down, so you can't do anything that requires it, like tablets... Kneeling will fuck you up, too, I hear.

So what does one do? Do you ideally buy a standing chair, a kneelchair, a threadmill, an adjustable desk and still use the normal one by rotating between all of the positions?

What about kegels, hemohrroids etc.? I hear squat shittin' is the way to go? How do you call that thing you put on top of a normal toilet? How do you train the pelvis floor, I read somewhere that doing standard kegels will actually harm you long term. I see people use that donut pillow when they get the 'roids - is that healthy long term? I've seen some Mexican/S. American saddles that had a hole under the rider's ass - that makes it look like it'd be okay to sit like that, but then I hear toilet bowls fuck you up in part by letting your guts press down on a hanging p. floor while you're relaxed... So this is helpful only when riding I guess?

And what was that about some kind of infection developing below your tailbone that you can't get rid of once you get it? You're supposed to shave there to avoid it, right? Anything else? This one condition is something I really would like to avoid.

Don't avoid sitting but rather have some compensation. Make pauses with standing, walking, stretches etc. and do enough sport in your free time.

The problem mostly appears if people sit at work, sit at home and avoid physical activity. Combine this with a bad diet and your are essentially crippling yourself in slow-motion.

This, it takes actually using your body in a moderate controlled fashion to improve things like joint strength and bone density. Shit wears out when you get old, but you can go through life in decent health if you just use and cultivate your body.

You read the side effects for that stuff? I care for young people who have psychotic episodes, it increases appetite (or rather, inhibits appetite suppression function), reduces histamine response in the brain (necessary for agitation/alertness) and in some cases, decreases bone density. As for the lamictal, I'm more experienced with sodium valproate/epilim but it seems they share a common side effect of liver/kidney harm.

Throw that shit down the toilet and continue scamming the system. Your brain is an intelligent organ and unless you're really needing meds, taking them will only teach it dependency.

By talking to someone about what happened, by clearing it out of your head. A professional, as people say. But a very close friend or family member could be helpful as well. There are certain therapies used by professionals to help people process the trauma, look it in the eye, stop denying that it happened, and live with it.

with PTSD, you want to deny it. Black out the thoughts, deny that they hurt you, that there is a problem. You want it to "go away" - that's how insidious it is and why it becomes worse over time. PTSD will never "go away". You come to terms with what happened, appreciate how traumatic this was for you, and change as a person.

to overcome PTSD, you must grow out of who you used to be. we all grow out of ourselves and into new people. with PTSD, people stop growing. it is okay to admit what happened and how horrible this is to experience, it is okay to meditate on it and absorb it. do not deny it at all costs.

you have to talk to someone who actually knows their shit. reach out in internet forums, start calling around to see if your (obama) insurance is accepted at a mental health facility. it is.

there is help, but first you need a little comfort. i would confide in a friend and be hugged

Doesn't acute pancreatitis develop as a complication of long term alcohol abuse though? And then it potentially progresses to chronic pancreatitis? I've never heard of pancreatitis due to alcohol poisoning.

With regards to the health of your brain, vitamin deficiencies (B1 especially) and excitotoxicity during alcohol withdrawal play a large role in the changes one sees in the brains of chronic alcoholics, it's not just neurotoxic effects of ethanol.

nope, you can develop acute pancreatitis on a normal pancreas for acute exposure to alcohol, it's quite likelly, it's indeed the first cause of acute pancreatitis in most countries (in others like mine it's complication of galstones), and I personally know a guy who had one in his 20's for heavily drinking one night, so I'm pretty sure.

Hi, I'm dating a girl who just told me she had herpes. Now, I like her and I don't think it's a big deal really.

But my problem is that I'd rather have a casual relationship for a few months and casual means I'd date other girls, and I don't wanna be all like "Hey! I'm also fucking someone with herpes on the side, I might or might not have it, just letting you know!".

Can I know if I catched it without a blood test and without symptoms? Can I transmit it before showing any symptoms at all? Would you tell someone you maybe had herpes when apparently 20% of people already do?

You can have and transfer herpes without symptoms. A lot of people don't even show it or have symptoms after their first break out.

Even with condoms there's literally no way to be sure you don't get herpes and no way to tell you have them til a) you have clear blisters and by then probably know you have herpes as it fucking hurts b) your body has built up antibodies over a period of months/years which sometimes show up on a blood test but this isn't very reliable

Some signs of herpes before a break out are itching/tingling/rash like symptoms
