Bruise Or Contusion (Definition)
Bruises, or ecchymoses, are discolorations and tenderness of the skin or mucous membranes due to the leakage of blood from an injured blood vessel into the surrounding tissues. A serious disease called pupura presents as a cluster of small bruises called petachia. Petachia often appears as many tiny red dots clustered together, and could indicate a problem. ...Read more
I had blood drawn from my arm and now my arm and elbow is bruised and discolored. Should i be alarmed?
Depends: After a blood draw, if there is slight bleeding underneath the skin, this creates the bruise. If enough pressure is placed after a blood draw, there should not be much bruising. If it is a small bruise, there should be no reason for alarm. It usually resolves within a week. If the bruise is large (extends farther from the are of the blood draw) and causes pain, seek medical attention. ...Read more

First see your Dr.: After any trauma that occurs, especially fall injuries down staircases requires that you see your doctor for evaluation, and to make sure you haven't injured bones, tendons, muscles strain, or ligaments.

If U hit the point-: -of the elbow there is a bursa & it often fills with blood or fluid, & can swell quite a lot. If U have a scrape or skin violated it can become infected. Early Rx is best.

I fell 6 days ago landing on my forearm by my elbow. It bruised significantly. Now it is a burning pain w/ a lump by the bruise. Hand numb at times?
Ulnar nerve: There is a nerve right by the elbow-the ulnar nerve that can be injured. The bruise itself may be a hematoma that can cause pressure or irritation of the nerve. That should get better over time. Numbness going into the 4th and 5th fingers would be indicative of injury/irritation of the ulnar nerve. The natural history is that it should get better over a few weeks. If not, see your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hit my elbow and it bruised. Bruise is now gone but there is a lump on the inside of my elbow. It still hurts, but it itches really bad.Is that normal?
Not exactly: Sound like you have developed a condition called "Olecranon bursitis," commonly known as "baker's elbow." This is due to increase synovial fluid collection in the Olecranon bursa as result of the initial injury to the area. It is body's response to injury and/or inflammation to the region. However, other possibilities, include: hematoma and infection, which needs to be evaluated by your doctor. ...Read more
My body is constantly itchy. I use cortisone itch cream, but it only helps a little. My fingers, neck, elbows are now bruised. What is going on?
Allergy or systemic: Is there an associated rash? Could be allergy to something - soap, detergent, food? You should try to ID the source and eliminate of course. Stress can also cause a general itchiness. Try an antihistamine or Claritin (loratadine) to help calm it down and see your MD. Cortisone cream all over the body is not ideal, nor getting bruises from itching! ...Read more
I had some trauma on my elbow. Being slammed against a counter top my elbow is now bruised and swollen and keeps getting worse. Losing range of motion?
Maybe fracture: Elbows are easy to fracture & treatment depends on the age of the patient. Kids under 6 almost always need surgery - they break the end of the humerus (upper arm bone) while adults usually break the radius (forearm bone) & only need a sling. Bleeding into the joint, fractured or not, will limit range of motion. Elevate in sling, ice, rest & Ace wrap compression will help until the Xray. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Torn cartilage : Any time a joint stops working and locks up as you're describing, there is a major concern that there is a piece of cartilage torn and blocking the joint space. You need to be evaluated by an orthopedist who can tell you if surgery is needed. Often you'll need x-rays and an MRI scan as part of the pre-op work up. If you have a torn cartilage and you continue to push it you can cause more damage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is large bruise on elbow from? I had a very tender, sore part right on my outer elbow. It's no longer sore or tender but now I have a huge bruise on the the entire elbow area - probably at least 5 in. In diameter. Any thoughts what that might be f
A : A bruise is a result of bleeding under the skin. It sounds as though you had a minor injury, possibly one that you we're even away of, that caused bleeding. Sometimes it doesn't take much to injure a small vessel. That would explain the tenderness and then the bruise. Most likely the bruise will resolve and you'll have no further problems. However, if your tenderness returns or the bruising continues, i would be sure to discuss it with your physician. ...Read more
Bursitis possible: The commonest swelling on the elbow is a bursitis (olecranon bursitis) that can swell up with fluid. If infected it can be very painful and red. Other causes can be cysts in the skin or abscess but that is painful. Simple examination will confirm if it is bursitis and the fluid can be aspirated in the office. ...Read more

Swelling : Swelling and loss of motion can be the result of trauma. That can mean a severe bruise or fracture. Swelling can also radially occur with infection, a joint problem such as gout or arthritis, which will also rapidly add to difficulty moving if swelling occurs rapidly. Loss of motion is a cause for concern and you should be seen by a health care provider and be examined and get x-rays for a start. The elbow is very sensitive to loss of motion when swollen and even a small hairline fracture in the radial head, a bone on the elbow, if not treated properly will result in difficulty extending the elbow fully. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
