I have a bruise on neck resembling a hickey. Possible causes? No kissing or injury to the area. I do have swollen lymph nodes in the region.

Get a medical check: This bruise could be from any kind of injury or bump. But your enlarged lymph glands concern me even more. So the best course of action is to have your doctor check your lymph nodes as well as your bruised area. A blood count(cbc) may be able to rule out any obvious cause of bleeding(bruises).If the lymph nodes are larger than one centimeter or if they enlarge further, then a biopsy of the node be. ...Read more

Can meth cause bruise in a particular region of body such just arms or just legs? ( and takes prenatals and b-100) does eat under 1800 cal

Meth=methamphetamine: or methadone. I assume you are talking about crystal meth. It is good you are taking vitamins, but that is not going to protect your unborn child from the harm of using methamphetamine. I am not aware of bruising as a complication, and you should see your OB provider to be evaluated, and get a referral for treatment for your drug problems. Good luck. ...Read more
