Depends

Hand
Best is to see a doctor to evalute and treat. There are no big arteries on top of hand. so the broken vessel is a vein. If the skin is not broken or cut, then you need to take antibiotic CIPRO FLOXIN 500 mg twice daily for two weeks. If the skin is broken, clean the wound with water, apply Bacitracin ointment and clean dressing. Chang dressing every other day till the wound closes. Also take Cipr

I have a broken blood vessel in the ball of my hand. It is the size of a large pea and tender to the touch and aches constantly. Been there 3 weeks.

May need drainage.

Hands_pre
What describe sounds like something called a hematoma or trapped blood under the skin especially if the cause was secondary to trauma. Usually this would be raised with surrounding blue or yellow-green skin. If you have had for 3 weeks, this may require drainage or evacuation under local anesthesia. You should see a general or hand surgeon.

Hematoma

leaky vein, should improve over time, but see your MD to make sure. This is not the presentation of a ganglion cyst.

Developed rash on the backs of my hands, starting at the middle knuckle and stopping just before the wrist. Rash is blotchy red, possibly mildly swollen. The backside of the palm looks like tiny red squiggly lines (raised blood vessels??) Rash doesnt itch

Dr. John Landi answered:

Why do my blood vessels in my hand keep breaking?

Usually trauma.

Open-uri20130901-29662-18ith5m
There are many veins on the top of the hand which are relatively close to the surface of the skin and are prone to be injured.Trauma to the area (this could be a simple banging of your hand without you even being aware) could result in beaking of the vein leading to a black and blue area. Also medications such as aspirin, blood thinners and even Vitamin E. flaxseed and and NSAIDS can cause this.

Dr. Mark Khorsandi answered:

blood vessel pop on top of my left hand should i get it check out?

Supportive care

Blood_vessels
Rupture of veins are not uncommon. Keep a vigil eye on it. If there is no expansion of blood under the skin, then it should resolve over time. The skin may turn yellow/blue for about two weeks (ecchymosis) , but then should subside. If you are not sure, then have a physician check it out.

Dr. John Landi answered:

I popped so many blood vessels in my hand its completely black and blue. What do i do?

Ice and pressure

Hand
Symptomatic treatment would be ice to the area and compression wrapping with an ace bandage. More importantly, however, is why is this happening to you? Is this do to an injury or to taking blood thinners or do to an underlying blood clotting problem? If symptomatic treatment doesn't help then you should see a hematologist for a clotting evaluation.

Can you rupture a blood vessel in your elbow by pressing a pressure point in your hand i just need to know?

NO

Blood
Your body has built-in safety features. One is collateral blood flow--it allows blood to continue to flow into and around a blocked area in order to prevent the accumulation of platelets which can lead to clotting.
