How do doctors treat a broken blood vessel?

How long does it take for a busted blood vessel to heal in your leg?

Usually 7 to 10 days: If a vein is bruised this usually results in bleeding either under the skin to form a hematoma (trapped clotted blood) or from the skin directly. Veins injured below the skin with a hematoma will take about 7 to 10 days to heal while a vein bleeding from the skin will usually stop with direct pressure and heal within 5 to 7 days. ...Read more

And do not touch it if you are diabetic and it is on your foot - get checked. ...Read more
