You should let a doctor take a look at it to make sure that it is not something else. ...Read more

On my inner right thigh I have purple small dots around a red bump. What could it be?

Red bump: Hi KavitaB, the red bump is likely a bug bite, pimple, or blocked follicle. The 'spots' around it are from the tiny blood vessels surrounding the wound becoming engorged with blood to help with the healing process. If it goes away in a few days then no big deal. However, if the purple spots start to spread or if the red bump becomes larger, painful, or starts to ooze (pus), then go to your doctor ...Read more

While drawing blood, my vein blew. It is now bruised and has tiny red/purple dots all over the spot. (Size of pen point or smaller) r the dots normal?

Normal healing.: Hello Theresa,

When a vein "blows" there is bleeding under the skin.
During the natural healing process the blood is cleared little by little. The dots may be a part of healing or a tight tourniquet. This is a very common occurrence. Do not be afraid. After awhile you will not be able to tell where the blood was drawn. ...Read more

I have purple bump inner thigh. Had for one month. Popped today and squirted blood. Lots of blood. Its never painful. Just purplish and shiny.

Staph infection: I believe the most common explanation is a staph infection...the most common bacteria living on your skin. The thigh is a common place due to friction of your legs rubbing together, reducing the skin's natural resistance to infection, causing a boil. They tend to recur and may be prevented with use of the skin cleanser 2% chlorhexadine and/or a course of the anti-staph antibiotic erythromycin. ...Read more
