Moms been on lovenox (enoxaparin) for 2 yrs now. She has serious bruising on abdomen which causes her pain. Any way to minimize the bruising?

Not really: Lovenox (enoxaparin) is an anticoagulant. It leads to easy bruising, and the injection itself leads to bruising. The only thing that can be changed is the medication (ask if there is an alternative to Lovenox that is not injected).

Unrecognized trauma: You have most certainly bumped your tummy against something or perhaps pinched your skin somehow. It does not take a lot of force to cause minor bleeds and bruising. It is also easy to be distracted. I don't see the sauna being related.

Unclear: Without knowing age (days) of your child difficult to say. "bruising" is most likely from remnant umbilical cord manipulation. As always with newborns checking with pediatrician is the best option.

I have bruising on my inner right thigh? I ruptured a cyst in my ovary and my white blood count was high, now I am having more pain in my lower belly, cramping, bloating, having to pee a lot, back pains and now bruising. Is this all caused from the ruptur

You: You need to have a medical evaluation immediately. I am concerned that you are having more bleeding from your cyst, a urinary problem, or something more serious. Please have an immediate medical evaluation. A high white blood cell count is not typical for a ruptured ovarian cyst, it is concerning for infection.

See MD: You may have a disorder of hemostasis or simply put a bleeding disorder that has led to internal bleeding not caused by trauma. If you are around 40 maybe TTP or ITP. Family history? See Heme Onc or go to ER.
