Bed bugs? mosquito?: Ticks, mosquitoes, bed bugs, spiders, and wasps can leave bruises at the site of the bite. Bites which occur while you sleep and are itchy are likely to be bed bugs, mosquitoes or possibly spiders. Topical Hydrocortisone and avoidance of future insect bites are helpful. The bruising is caused by a chemical the bug uses while feeding. If problem persists see your doctor. ...Read more

Sounds like a bite: because bruises are typically painful and almost never itch. Were you outside over the weekend? Try an antihistamine if needed (you may be able to find it in cream form) and apply warm compresses to help it heal faster. ...Read more

Why do my bruises turn red and become itchy and raised in the sun? They look like crazy misqito bites but they are where my bruises are.

Why do my bruises turn red and become itchy and raised in the sun? They look like crazy misqito bites but they are where my bruises are.

Itchy Injury: You are descibing what sounds like a histamine mediated symptom. Soft tissue injury usually results in the release of prostaglandins which ar chemicals in the body associated with inflammation. There are individuals who have unusually large amounts of histamine in the skin and will respond like you descibe. You can test this, by running a nail ove your skin and see if you get a raised red line. ...Read more

I have a flat, non-itchy, non-dry pink/red mark on leg for a year, sometimes looks like a bruise, changes shade regular, what can it be?

I have a flat, non-itchy, non-dry pink/red mark on leg for a year, sometimes looks like a bruise, changes shade regular, what can it be?

Without looking: The answer I would provide is merely a likely thing, but this is speculative. I have always espoused the doctrine that a rash or skin condition must be seen to be given a diagnosis. Spider veins and hemangiomas can appear similar to your description and are often itchy at times. Still this is conjecture. Show this skin anomaly to a doctor, and you will be able to find out what it is. ...Read more

Not sure what insect bit me but it turned from bright red to purple "bruise-like" after a few days,  its very itchy and a little swollen,what is this?

Reaction to bite: You are having an allergic (inflammatory) reaction to the bite. When you were bit the insect "injected" really tiny amounts of dirt, feces, and other garbage it has landed on into you. Your body released numerous chemicals and substances to fight off those particles. One of them is histamine which is responsible for some of the redness and itching. Apply ice and take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to help symptoms. ...Read more

My bruises itch?Starting from a month ago, every bruise i get started getting red, warm, swollen, very itchy 4-5 hours after impact. Is this serious?

Depends: Depends on what caused the bruise. Most bruises do not break the skin but produce either swelling and/or a "black ; blue" mark on the skin. If this skin problem recurs please see your family physician to make a diagnosis. If the bruise gets better in about a week that is normal. Most bruises do not itch. ...Read more

Red random rashes: More info needed, and visual exam, to begin to guess what could be going on. Dermatologists are the best at diagnosing this type of problem, especially if biopsy is appropriate. It could be a form of atopic dermatitis (eczema) or something more serious like vasculitis, low platelet count, or even scabies. Trusted products can sensitize too, after long use; contact dermatitis is always possible. ...Read more
