Typically, posting threads seeking medical advice is not allowed on these forums, whether it's regarding getting rid of the sniffles or asking why a gaping whole in your foot is starting to smell funny, because if bad or sarcastic advice (which has already shown up in responses here) is taken seriously, then it could be very dangerous.

The best course of action to take, if you ever have medical queries, is to seek professional advice from a doctor.

Closing this thread to avoid further problematic responses.
