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

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.

Crazy how you more than superficially wounded yourself. That might not just be pus but possibly the yellow caking of a staph infection. Check with your doc.

Hello /MED/

I have a fucking huge zit on my face near my chin. It is so painful that it hurts to open and close my jaw/mouth. It hurts to smile with both sides of my mouth.

Any clever ideas? This shit sucks.

OP here, thanks for the suggestions guys.

The zit has totally healed on the surface of the skin and is no longer painful, but now there is a lump below the skin that's about the size of a lima bean. Totally invisible from the outside, but I can feel it's there. I've never used chewing tobacco but I assume this is sort of what it feels like to pack a fat lip.

I would consider poking it with a sharp pin/sewing needle. But a trick for most thinks is Epsom salts. Amazing stuff. It's not actually a salt. But have had bad bug itchy painful unidentified bug/spinder bites and applied with a wet paper towel and like 10 minutes later what was a few large quarter sized red welts were just gone.

Epsom salts, read up on the uses.

Open your pores by going in the shower cold. Apply witch hazel to the affected area periosically. If you can, get two scripts for breakouts: benzoyl peroxide and clyndamyacin phosphate.

Drawing Blood

Question for anything with a medical job that draws blood, whether you're a dedicated phlebotomist or an EMT or whatever

How do you find veins in really dark skinned people? I'm pale as fuck and I can barely trace the outlines of veins in my own skin. How do you reliably find a vein in someone who's much more opaque?

I'm thinking of taking a phlebotomy certification and I'm honestly just wondering what the trick is for this so I can get a head start on practicing the non-obvious skills

well, although the growth and development of the blood vessels is ultimately unique to each person like a fingerprint in terms of the smaller branches of the vessels, the major vessels are pretty consistent across humans. the veins of the anterior arm make a v-shape on either side of the bicep tendon. usually the medial vein is injected. it takes a little practice but you can palpate (feel) blood vessels under the skin with a finger or two. first press on your bicep tendon, feel how dense and ropey it feels? not much give, or recoil. now push on the meat of your forearm. feels like skin, fat, and/or muscle. locate a blood vessel and push very sofly on it. feel how it offers a slight resistance, like a pasta noodle, but recoils back up as you release the pressure. once you get a sense of that feeling you can find it with your eyes closed

Couldn't have said it better myself. Make sure you are adequately hydrated. Also, you can squeeze and make a fist to make the vein locating process easier

Got pregnant despite taking the pill.

Doctor said the child will be a vegetable with high possibility of beeing bedridden forever.

Who will take care of the child when we are no more?

How far into pregnancy are you?

Some questions from somebody who is both pro and anti choice:

Do you think sperms dying is sinful?
Do you mourn every egg that you flush out with your menstruation blood?
Do you mourn every animal you've killed?
Do you believe a fertilised egg is more capable of emotion and suffering than animals?
Does it have more advanced cellular and neural structure than an animal?
At which point do you believe it's wrong to kill the potential of a life?

I think both being pro and anti choice is valid.
I just believe that you should ask yourself in either case,
why is this different than all the other lives I have killed?

Am I keeping it simply because of what happiness I could get out of it, or what happiness the being could get out of it?
I'd choose never having lived past the womb over living my life in a bed without a single real friend ever. Every time.

Actually, according to a recent OBGYN textbook I read, less than 4% of babies come out with birth defects, even in this dopeheaded age. It will be considered a high risk pregnancy. At 16 weeks, go have your first comprehensive ultrasound. Start prenatals now, not after the appointment. And don't use ibuprofen if you need pain relief, it's dangerous for pregnancy
Use of acetaminophen is safe. And early congratulations on your little miracle.

Caffeine allergy?

Crosspost from /stim/, never hurts to get different perspectives.

Essentially, I get really fucked from coffee. I've been without a while without and had two cups today, so it got really apparent how much it affects me.

In short, anything more than half a cup of coffe gives me:
Shaky hands
A sharp feeling in my head, as in ice pick through head but not painful sharp. (keywords are probably; cold and metallic feeling. Drinking something cold after chewing some really minty or eucalyptus/menthol gum, but inside head)
Feeling of impending doom. Kinda like a diphenhydramine comeup only it never get's worse than that. (Tried DPH once out of curiosity, not for me. Didn't fry my brain with DPH addiction. Didn't dose retarded amount.)
General lack of interest in anything at all. Can't even watch a single episode of a series I usually like. Essentially instant depression. (Have used this for studying though. Since if nothing is interesting I might as well do what I usually find boring to get time moving.)

Everything except the shaky hands lasts hours. Or when I think about it I guess it sets in after the coffee wears off. Shaky hands during right after drinking, rest of the stuff grow as the shakes wear off and set in for real maybe some hour after, and last the rest of the evening. Don't feel truly 'well' until I've gotten sleep.

Just makes me wonder if some kind of receptor or something is fucked.
I just drink socially at most once every other month, toke up when weed comes my way but don't look for it actively.
No other substance use regular enough to be counted. And these symptoms have always been there anyway, just that amount of coffee needed to set them in has decreased.

What is your blood type? Certain blood types naturally have more adrenaline and are sensitive to caffiene. If you have been using downers or haven't had caffiene exposure, you can have heightened sensitivity too.

My folks are getting old, my parents split up and re-married, so I have two sets of aging parents. As they sink into retirement, I begin to worry about possible cognitive decline, and what is to be done when they can't take care of themselves anymore.

I know that every generation has to deal with this, but really what is there to do?

Homeopathically your options are coconut oil and avacado for omega 3's. They are shown to be preventative maintenance for dementia. Also, ginseng root extract and flax seed. I heard that colene(sp?) and oiracetam may be used as well.

I've had a sore/tender throat/neck for the past month or so and I little while back I noticed one of the lymph nodes under my jaw was swollen and kinda firm/hard.

I'm going to the doctor to have him look at it, but I'm kinda freaking out. I'm 26 and I know it's rare to get something like lymphoma at this age, but still.

Anyone ever have anything similar?

transdermal patch placement

File: 1511374548297.png -(1664645B / 1.59MB, 1600x1440) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size. transdermal patch placement
I was wondering how exactly patch placement affects the dosage I'm getting. Either in general or specifically for clonidine patches.
In the past I've been putting them on my arms or around the collarbone but this last week I put it on the back of my hand and noticed it started wearing off about 12 hours before the week was up, while in the past the patches (at least the ones on my arms) seem to have a limited effect for a couple days after the week is up.
Is my body fat slowing the release of the drug? Should I not put it on the back of my hand or similar places with little fat?

I'm also interested in any tips to get the most out of each patch because my doctor is trying to scale back my dose a bit more quickly than I'm comfortable with.
