Hit my elbow and it bruised. Bruise is now gone but there is a lump on the inside of my elbow. It still hurts, but it itches really bad.Is that normal?
Not exactly: Sound like you have developed a condition called "Olecranon bursitis," commonly known as "baker's elbow." This is due to increase synovial fluid collection in the Olecranon bursa as result of the initial injury to the area. It is body's response to injury and/or inflammation to the region.

The beet kvass would not do harm but it will not correct the problem. You need to visit your ob-gyn for a consultation and treatment. In the meantime eat food rich in iron such as beef, beans, lentils, dark leafy greens, artichokes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
41yrs, mennorhea(use lysteda 6th hourly for 3 days), could lysteda cause increased tendency to bruise?Get bruise and pain even if i hit something slowly
NO: Lysteda is an amino acid which is present in nearly everything you eat. No, it will not cause bruising. It will not do anything else,either. Whoever told you to use this was ignorant of medical science. Whoever sells this should be ashamed of himself, but, of course, con-men have no conscience. See a GYN and stop fooling around. Instead of tranexamic acid you should treat the fibroids. ...Read more
I was in the woods for a walk & got scratched up by branches & some left some bruises.some bruises weren't from anything they just appeared. why?
Watch closely: Bruises can be due to abnormal blood clotting. So you have 2 choices. One is to watch your skin carefully for another week or two and see if any new bruises appear.

More testing may be needed depending o ...Read more
