    Tooth Abscess...Treatment working or not working?

    Yesterday I went to the dentist due to a very (very) painful tooth that would not quit throbbing. I was diagnosed with a tooth abscess. After taking two doses of antibiotics (I am taking 500mg of penicillin every 6 hours - 3 doses, thus far), the lump at the back of my tooth had reduced a bit, the throbbing was tolerable, and I had hoped the medication was working. Placebo effect is possible, too, of course. This morning, however, I woke up to find no lump directly above the tooth, but pressure and....

    Tonsil stones or hole?

    Lips changing and disappearing by the day

    I am 27 yrs old, not a smoker, my lips are 100% natural. For the past two weeks, my lips have been getting smaller daily(I've been taking pictures to track this), major volume loss, shape change, and dropping on both sides (but one side much greater). The side that is dropping more is also losing volume at a faster rate. I've also had pain for only a few days of the jaw muscle on the same side, but not sure if that has anything to do with my lips disappearing. What disease/disorder could....

    Saliva build up and difficulty talking

    Hi, so this has been going on for a year and starting to interfere with my daily college life and giving me depression. So my left cheek feels tight and difficult to move and it feels like there’s a lot of saliva built up on the left side. It becomes extremely difficult to talk and speak clearly and I have to put a lot of effort in to get my words out clearly. My left cheek also seems swollen compared to my right cheeck from the inside. Please help!

    Summer Skin - Exfoliation For Smoother, Younger Skin

    In fact, UVA rays are the leading causes of skin aging. However, the points I did mention should be enough to help you find a quality anti aging skin care product. Instead, what you should look out for are such natural ingredients that stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin in your body. Some things increase the free radicals in your body, for example pollution, smoking, alcohol, fast food and even emotional stress could cause it. According to dermatologists, over-cleaning the face....

    Tongue spots etc

    Hi there, hopefully at the back of this shot you can see the large spots right at the back of my tongue. I've also started seeing smaller ones forming as raised (painless) little papules (i think they're called) at the front. I'm worried largely because of potential things gotten from giving unprotected oral sex, and am unsure how long those larger spots have been present. I am not currently exhibiting other symptoms to my knowledge. Thank you very much.

    Oral Thrush? Or something else?

    Hello, I am a 22 year old male who was recently told I have oral thrush by my GP, and I got a CBC. The CBC showed my lymph was somewhat low (.8 with normal being at least 1.2), but total WBC, RBC, and platelets were normal. My fasting blood sugar was close to pre-diabetes, and I didn't eat beforehand (I am not overweight, and it wasn't quite over the threshold). I don't have HIV, and I haven't been on any antibiotics. I brush my teeth twice a day and floss occasionally, but haven't....

    Post Wisdom Teeth Removal

    Hi, I just got my wisdom teeth pulled today and I’m not feeling any pain or anything other than a slight uncomfort because of the missing teeth. I just wanted to know if i could still go to universal tomorrow? There are only 2 roller coaster that are a but more hardcore, I could skip on those if I HAVE to but I don’t feel bad or pain or anything. If I go, would I have to skip on the rollercoasters? Thanks:)

    Only the first day, and hate my bottom denture

    I had 7 bottom teeth extracted today. Three regular, and four broken or severely damaged teeth that were on their way out whether a dentist or nature did. I was fine with that. Did receive a new, immediate bottom denture, and, even though it's only the first day..Hate it. Feels too bulky, like horse teeth, can tell, and they've popped out 3 times already (including the first time in my car, on the way home). I tried a little adhesive on the back part, where no extractions were done, so no....

    Pulsating “bump” below skin on Facial Artery on cheek about an inch from my mouth

    So I have noticed a bump below the skin for about a year now. It is soft to the touch and not discolored. I can only see it in certain lighting but recently within the past month I have noticed it is pulsing with my heartbeat. I have felt my facial artery and followed it from the mandible and it feels larger on my left than on my right. I have gone to the dermatologist and they said they had never seen anything like that before. I then went to an oral surgeon who suggested I go and get an angiogram....
