This happened after unprotected sex with my longtime girlfriend (2 years). We had a pretty lengthy intercourse. Per my research, it could be a bruise, caused by the friction and due to the fact that we do not use lubricant or Balanitis. Difference?

So, if bearable, you may be off sex and see for now. For men, tight long foreskin often contributes to local irritation after intercourse. For long-term care, circumcision is needed. To assure what it is, seek evaluation & counsleing timely. Best ...Read more

Labs: I'd be surprised if the d-dimer was up because of bruises, and would not discount a high value as part of the big picture just because you're been bruised. You know that many healthies have "elevated" this-or-that. People on megadose vitamin C may have extra oxalate in the blood that some folks suggest could bind the calcium reagent; this isn't something we actually worry about. ...Read more
My legs are covered in bruises that take weeks to go away. Every little bump I get a bruise. Causes? Have had nausea headaches memory issues for weeks
Recently a leg injury gave me a giant bruise. A previous bruise caused the skin to open and I had to have wound care. Do not take blood thinners/no diabetes. Is there anyway I can promote healing?
