Cellulitis: What you are describing may be either cellulitis (which is an infection of the skin), or DVT (clot in the veins), either of these require urgent treatment and you should go to the emergency room as soon as possible. If cellulitis, then the treatment is antibiotics and local care. If dvt, then the treatment is blood thinners. The er can make the diagnosis and begin treatment. ...Read more

Should a broken blood vessel in the leg be very painful and swollen after two days?

Dr. Richard Michaels

It can be: When a blood vessel bursts under the skin it will cause a collection of blood in the tissues called a hematoma. These can be tender and painful with some localized swelling around the hematoma itself. As long as there is no red streaking up the legs, fever, or chills, this should resolve on its own with a little time. You may want to use some heat to the area to speed the healing a little bit. ...Read more

Will require rehab: Hamstring strains are common injuries in an active population and a common sports injury. A sharp sudden pain and possible pop is experienced. The severity of the injuries is graded from 1-3. A 1 is a slight pull and a 3 is a tear. Strains can be in the substance of the muscle or can involve tearing of the attachment to the pelvic bone. A comprehensive rehab program is needed for a full recovery. ...Read more

Petechia: The common causes of petechia are trauma, which usually is a result of a tourniquet type but maybe due to any trauma. Or due to a deficiency in playlet number or function called itp or due to a more serious Meningococcal infection it also could be do to medications. The key is to observe for spread if the petechia or signs of illness. If that happens see a doctor asap. ...Read more

Skin discoloration: Thank you for your question. Skin discoloration of the legs may be caused by many things. There are forms of inflammatory conditions of the skin that could cause this as well as responses to external sources such allergies to topical agents or otherwise. Having an examination and evaluation performed by a qualified medical practitioner would be helpful in accurate diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Large swollen portion on penis told it was broken blood vessel, now there is a clear hard vein area painful to touch. Could it be a penis thrombosis?

Mondor's Disease: Probable thrombosed dorsal vein of penis or superficial venous thrombophlebitis. Should not be a problem, not like deep vein thrombosis of leg or coronary thrombosis. Commonest causes are masturbation or excessive sex. Penile swelling should settle down in time. This should not be confused with priapism, which is an erection which fails to go away & can be due to internal penile vessel thrombosis. ...Read more
