When I scratch my legs I get what looks like a hickey. It lasts for several days. What is the cause of this?

Tiny vessel damage: If it lasts for a few days and looks like a hickey, you are probably scratching hard enough to damage the tiny capillary blood vessels in the skin, and what you are seeing is a tiny bruise in the area you scratched. Do you have any other easy bleeding symptoms like nose bleeds, heavy periods, gums bleeding with brushing teeth - then may want to check if blood doesn't clot right. Read more

I have a bruise on neck resembling a hickey. Possible causes? No kissing or injury to the area. I do have swollen lymph nodes in the region.

Get a medical check: This bruise could be from any kind of injury or bump. But your enlarged lymph glands concern me even more. So the best course of action is to have your doctor check your lymph nodes as well as your bruised area. A blood count (cbc) may be able to rule out any obvious cause of bleeding (bruises).If the lymph nodes are larger than one centimeter or if they enlarge further, then a biopsy of the node be.
