Doctor insights on:
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
Yes.: If what you mean by a popped vein is a bulging varicose vein then itching can be due to the varicose vein. Other related symptoms could be aching, cramping, burning, heaviness and pressure.

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

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
