I am 44 year old female who got a cortisone shot on Januuary 21st 2014. The shot was on my elbow because it was determined that I had tennis elbow and this would help. It helped for about 2 months but never felt completely healed. Now the pain is back and I cant lift anything heavier than a bottle of water without hurting the elbow. I cant make the motions needed with my fingers and thumb to use a spray bottle. Even if I get it empty enough to hold, it causes great pain to try to pull the spray trigger (same way with pumping gas). With all that said ..... my main question is --- should I still have a bruise at the injection site four months later?

- How to make baby stop scratching his face and head
Baby boy almost 4 months old. About 1 mouth ago developed rash and rough skin on the face, Dr. prescribed cortisone 1%. Also tried cataphil moisturizer and california baby. The condition has been on and off. The face now can be seen cleaned of rash except in lower chins and around the ears, but the area where the hair grows starts to have lots of scalp. Skin of the face also becomes rough and flaky, not very serious though. Baby scratches his eyes, face, ears, and heads, and often leaves cuts. Now we put socks on his hands but this is not a solution. What to do? Will it go away by itself? First time parents, thanks.
