Bad blood draw yesterday (venipuncture/8vials).Immediately:red/blue, v.swollen&painful.Now:flat,hard lump,bruise.Do ruptured veins heal?Just a leak?

Hematoma: The venipuncture for blood draw leaked and caused a hematoma outside of the vein or in the vein wall or both and this will heal in most cases without any consequences. I recommend ice in the first 2 days, several times a day (15 min each time) and switch to topical heat on day 3-4 and take ibuprofen as tolerated. ...Read more

Yesterday green lump that looked like large vein appeared on top of foot. Felt bruised. Today it's a small red bump surrounded by green bruise. Dvt?

In theory : It would not be a DVT as the D stands for deep. There is the dorsal venous arch that could get a clot but it would be superficial. Clots in the foot are usually very painful to the exact spot of the clot. If you still have something there why not go get it checked out.... ...Read more

Popped blackhead & washed then put bacitracin on it so it wouldn't scarwhite head formed i  popped then raised scab formed popped clear liquidwhat2do?

Skin abscess: In teenagers, it is not uncommon to suffer from acne. This can be related to a variety of normal growth issues, and also to physical activity, hygiene, and topical products used. I would typically not encourage multiple popping of blackheads or skin abscesses. The fingers could contaminate the wound further with other bacteria and cause a worse infection. Best to use soap and water regularly. ...Read more

Thoughts? Could pickle juice heal a popped blister?

Thoughts? Could pickle juice heal a popped blister?

BAd Idea: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. No irritating alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, vinergar and bleach solutions. Inflammation (red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read more
