Doctor insights on:
I fell and landed on my right hip, on a metal threshold two days ago. The area hasn't bruised but itches and occasionally burns. Is that normal?
Probably healing: If you are able to walk normally and have no other symptoms than what you describe as burning and itching in the area I would reassure you that it is not a serious injury. If you develop a rash or other symptoms in the next few days you should seek attention again- otherwise no treatment and be reassured ...Read more
Bruise Or Contusion (Definition)
Bruises, or ecchymoses, are discolorations and tenderness of the skin or mucous membranes due to the leakage of blood from an injured blood vessel into the surrounding tissues. A serious disease called pupura presents as a cluster of small bruises called petachia. Petachia often appears as many tiny red dots clustered together, and could indicate a problem. ...Read more

I have a bruise on my inner thigh abt six inches above the knee. It started small but is grwing w/sevrl bruises. It itches & idk how I got it. Worry?
Not sure but the: only way to find out is monitor it to make sure it doesn't evolve normally and go away. Bruises tend to enlarge briefly for 1-2 days, then change color from red/black to green/yellow, then start to fade. If you continue to have bruises throughout your body, then you need to get checked out for certain diseases by a healthcare provider. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
I have a bruise with a red raised circle at one end of the bruise and it itches. Should i be concerned?
Bruise w/red circle: If the bruise is recent, it may itch. Some areas of the bruise may be more red or raised than others depending on the impact of the trauma. A typical bruise will start resolving in a couple of days, turning from purple to green to yellow then gone all together. If the redness persists or the bruise has not started to go away in a couple of days, please see your doctor. ...Read more

3+wks sore spot on base of scalp by ear 4inchs long. Feels like bruise throbs& sometimes itches quarter size fluid filled spot. No redness. Dizzy now
I had a very bad bruise on my calf it has healed now I have a slight bump where the bruise was and it itches really bad. Why does it still hurt/itch?
Need to examine:
It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you. You may try warm compresses for a few days, as the blood clot in the tissue may not have resolved, even though the skin appears to have healed.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

The open hole of my vangina itches and burns and every time i touch it it hurts..... Feels like its bruise idk???
I got bite by a mosquito I think. On my boob, still itches looks like a bruise . This is from Saturday night .
Possible tick bite: Sometimes a 'bruise' like rash can develop after a tick bite- so I would advise you to show this to a doctor who could help you. Both ticks and mosquitoes inject saliva when they bite, so the result can be an itchy spot later on. Ticks like skin folds, so not sure if this bite is closer to your arm pit or something where it would be a good spot to hide? Ticks (nymphs) can be VERY SMALL too. ...Read more
