My fiance hurt his wrist at work looks like a vein xploded swollen large dark blue spot on wrist should we be concerned about the bleeding under skin?
Treat symptomaticly: Injuries to the soft tissues of the body below the skin cause swelling and can also cause the veins in the skin below the injury to bleed. This is what causes the area to become black and blue. Over about a week the body reabsorbs the blood, the swelling subsides and the area heals. The initial treatment is ice to the injured area, elevation and compression usually with an ace wrap. ...Read more

My sister is age of 11,she has no disease but her left hand's wrist veins pain and turns into dark blue colour.
Veins: Blood in veins being deoxygenated looks purplish normally. Veins should not be painful unless they are inflamed(phlebitis) in which case they would be hardened and tender to the touch. My guess is that her hand discomfort is due to other causes such as sprain,contusion,etc. A physician will need to examine her if symptoms persist or if redness or swelling develop. ...Read more
I bumped my arm, close to my wrist today and it seems worse than a bruise. Very dark purple and raised. Should I be concerned?
Yes: You are of an age where fractures become more likely with relatively minor injuries. If this was a fall on outstretched hands or even a bad bump, it could well be a fracture. You should put an ice bag or frozen peas on it, tape your arm gently on a flat piece of wood, or even a solid spatula, keep it above your heart, and go get it x-rayed. Take off all your rings first. Good luck to you gal ...Read more

I woke up today with a few very dark blue veins. 1 is s- shaped from just below left arm pit to elbow and then a straight line from elbow to wrist and?
You haven't: developed new veins; they just look different! The venous/vein system is very susceptible to changes in blood volume, and when the volume is reduced, such as in dehydration, veins can appear more prominent, more deeply colored, etc. From your description, doubt due to trauma. My prediction is that if you pump up the fluids your veins will go back to looking "normal" to you. Good wishes:) ...Read more
Athetoid wrist movements with in six month child with odd color eyes (dark brown (l) and bright blue (r). Concern?
Thank you-- from birth to about six months, my granddaughter had writhing movements in her wrists. At times she also seemed to extend her to
Heterochromia : Heterochromia is the scientific name for someone with 2 different colored eyes. It can be genetic (like in your granddaughter's case) or acquired. There are a few syndromes or diseases associated with heterochromia such as sturge-weber, waardenburg's syndrome, or parry-romberg syndrome, but they have many other obvious physical abnormalities which it does not appear that your granddaughter has. Most people with heterochromia are completely healthy and normal. Some famous folks with it are actresses kate bosworth, mila kunis and jane seymour or actors keifer sutherland and christopher walken. I am not sure what to make of her abnormal movements, but it is very reassuring that she is progressing well developmentally. You should continue to keep an eye on her development, and discuss any concerns with her pediatrician. Good luck! ...Read more

Best call surgeon: Doesn't sound like the fall was serious since you didn't fracture anything or go to the er from your description. You may wish to call your surgeon and go in just to make sure you break any sutures or cause any other damage but i think ultimately, you'll likely be fine. Still, never hurts to check in with the person who fixed you up in the first place! cheers! ...Read more

Causes of sudden pain/stiffness in the base of both palms (between thumb joint and wrist) accompanied by extremely dark blue/bulging veins-no injury?
What? Extremely itchy rash on thighs, stomach, wrists -perfectly round papules (clear fluid), early menses with dark brown flow, and huge purple zit.
It is important to : Seperate these phenomen. The period is not related to rash onset. The papules could be a few things but if itching like crazy, at night, u may have a skin mite, bed bugs or something requiring permetharin cream. The zit is likely coincidental and, if your periods are bad then itching all over and having a zit will put u into disaster mode. Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and Hydrocortisone cream, get into doc. ...Read more

Burned myself with an iron on my hand and the site turned dark. It's not long. I'd say about an inch long. How serious is this?
Not very serious: It sounds like you may have a partial thickness burn. These typically blister after a short time. Keep the area washed and protect it with Vaseline and it will heal. You may end up with a permanent discoloration. Using sunscreen or covering up on bright days will minimize this. ...Read more
