Blood spot under thumb where it got pinched. Do I have to do anything?

Subungual Hematoma: If you are having a lot of pain and discomfort as well, then you may need to see a doctor to have the collection of blood evacuated from under the nail. Usually this is done by poking a sterile needle through the nail to puncture it and allow the blood to drain out. Follow up with your doctor and have it looked at by a professional. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I have a black spot on my hand but I am not sure if it is a blood blister or a mole it has been there for about one and a half weeks?

I have a black spot on my hand but I am not sure if it is a blood blister or a mole it has been there for about one and a half weeks?

Unclear: Blood blisters are usually painful, and related to pressure or trauma though not infrequently there may be no recollection of a specific event. They can take several weeks to resolve as the blood gets reabsorbed by the body. A mole typically is not painful, and would not change much over a month. So time would likely help answer this question for you. If worse, please have it examined. ...Read more
