Hi. Sorry for the delay but your question was posted in Dermatology and it only became available now. I saw the photo you posted. My suggestion is that she apply a combination of an antibacterial ointment like Neopsporin and an over the counter vitamin E cream three times a day. From the photo I think this should clear up the problem without leaving a scar. If you need more information, please just ask me

Hello i would like to ask you a different question related to my personal health i have been facing for like 1 or 2 years now

I have a pain not continues pain its a wave like pain and very different type of pain not actually like when we get from any injury or stomache it happens to me at the right lower side of my abdomen and it continue for about 20 - 30 mins and than stops and it keep coming and going like 4 -5 times i face this kind of pain and its wave like pain is it related to my kidney ? i got my urine tested and it was normal test but what this test could be related to ? some other stomach problem ? i am mostly constipated kindly expalin me what kind of test should i go for or ultra socuns or xrays to diagnose this thing

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK Zohaib. This could still be related to your kidney if you are having kidney stones that are passing and for that you would need a ct scan of the abdomen. It isn't likely appendicitis since that doesn't come and go and once it hits it continues until you are forced to see a doctor and have surgery. It could be what's called irritable bowel syndrome. I would get the ct of your abdomen and perform a colonoscopy to checke both of those possibilities. I've now answered two questions for you and I would be glad to continue the conversation but I would ask that you rate my service to you first

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
It can be from a neurpathy in diabetics or it may be what's called tarsal tunnel syndrome which is like carpal tunnel syndrome but in the foot instead of in the hand. It would take an MRI of the foot to check for that. The test for the kidney stone would be ct scan of the abdomen and pelvis with contrast. For the blood work, complete metabolic panel and CBC
