Swollen el­bow

Chat - - True-Life -

Q I banged my el­bow and now there’s a swelling over the tip that feels full of fluid. Could a doc­tor pop it? Louise, Alder­shot

ASounds like bur­si­tis, a col­lec­tion of fluid, usu­ally due to re­peated rub­bing or a mi­nor in­jury – but if it’s hot, red and ten­der and you have a fever, see your GP. Oth­er­wise, it should get bet­ter on its own.
