I keep getting little blood blister type things they mostly come on my stomach & legs they are only small & I'd squeezed blood comes out wot cud the b?

Cherry angiomas: Relax and ignore them. If you don't like them a dermatologist can erase them with electrodessication or laser. I prefer electrdessication as it costs nothing. I can charge just a routine office visit. I can treat several every minute. There his a mild sting and they heal in 1 or 2 weeks, depending on size. Anticoagulation makes no difference. They are collections of capillaries filled with blood. ...Read more

I have a rather large blood blister on my stomach area and it started bleeding so I popped it.  How can I now prevent infection?

Blood blister: Generally, blisters should not be "popped" as the area beneath them is sterile. Preventive measure for one you've broken: wash gently with warm soap & water; pat dry; apply antibiotic ointment & non-stick bandage. Watch for signs of infection: pain, increasing redness, pus. If those occur, see doc for treatment. Btw, may not have been blood blister: as we age get benign red lumps called hemangioma. ...Read more
