Popped a zit and now it's bleeding under the skin. Suggestions?

Pop! Goes the Measle: Yeah. Leave it alone. You squeezed too hard or with too much pressure with your nails. Now it just has to heal. It may collect some more pus but you'll have to be extra careful getting rid of that. Put some antibacterial ointment on it and give it several days to heal. The blood should resorb. Be careful next time. If a zit won't pop with gentle pressure wait 'till it "matures" more to try again. ...Read more

Petechiae?: This sounds like petechiae, which actually is small volume bleeding just under the skin. This should be examined by a provider- petechiae have several causes but can be present with platelet disorders, that can affect blood clotting. Occasionally severe infections can cause petechiae, but most people at that stage wouldn't be on healthtap- they'd be in the icu! ...Read more

Just got tb skin test and small 4 mm area is pinkish red like bleeding under the skin but no swelling or bump. Is this positive? Freaking out.

No: PPD/Mantoux/TB tests are interpreted by measuring the degree of induration (raising of skin), not discoloration. In addition the cutoff for size for positive test is: 15mm for low risk patient 10mm for high risk patient 5mm for HIV patient so in no case would 4mm qualify as a positive test; though again 4mm of pinkish red color without swelling is meaningless. ...Read more

If "blood thinners" are actually anticoagulants why can they cause easy under-the-skin bleeding with or without a bump or injury? more = worse for me

Lack of clotting: There three mechanisms to control bleeding into the tissue from injury, 1. contraction of blood vessels, 2 Platelet aggregation to form a plug at the site of injury to the vessel, 3. Blood clot formation. If any one these is less than normal bleeding occurs in the tissue. Anti-coagulants impair blood clotting and a side effect is bleeding in the tissue, or easy bruising. ...Read more
