Basically I sucked  a cup and now I have a red dotty bruise across my chin it's really ugly and I want it gone please help?

It will take time: The force exerted against your skin ruptured capillaries and vessels, causing blood leakage into the extracellular space, causing the bruised appearance and the red dots, or petechiae. It will take time for these vessels to heal and time for your body to clear the area of the leaked blood cells. You can use makeup to cover it like a black eye or a blemish, but it will take some days to resolve. ...Read more

My 5 yrs old got a black and red bruise on her chin a month ago. I iced it and the red patch is gone however a black dot under the skin remains. How.

It probably is : Nothing to worry about. Usually the bruise tend to go away in a week or two, but at times the black patch may go say slowly. If there is no itching and no swelling give it a couple more and then if it is still a concern please see a dermatologist just to make sure that further wait is ok. I hope that this elevates your anxiety. ...Read more

I had a deep pimple on my chin and I knew not to pop it but I felt as though I needed to relieve pressure. Now there's a large bruise under my chin?

I had a deep pimple on my chin and I knew not to pop it but I felt as though I needed to relieve pressure. Now there's a large bruise under my chin?

Hands down: I agree, you should not have manipulated the pimple. Next time, if the pimple is sore, try applying a warm cloth to the surface of the skin gently. A topical acne preparation like benzoyl peroxide would be helpful. The bruise will resolve in about a week. Bruises arise from the rupture of blood vessels beneath the skin. Prompt pressure and ice can minimize bruising just as they begin to form. ...Read more
