Inner Thigh Bruising
Bruises, or ecchymoses, are a discoloration and tenderness of the skin or mucous membranes due to the leakage of blood from an injured blood vessel into the tissues. Pupura refers to bruising as the result of a disease condition. A very small bruise is called a petechia. These often appear as many tiny red dots clustered together, and could ...Read more
Lots of bites on my inner thighs and right on my panty line. The itching was the worst I have ever felt. now they have bruising on the inner thighs ?
Possible chiggers: Chiggers are mites which burrow into the skin and like to live in places such a the constricted line of elastic undergarments like panties. There are good over the counter treatments for these so check with your pharmacist for what is in stock. He might also suggest a cream (cortisone 1%) to relieve the itching. ...Read more
Pain in my along my inner right thigh only when I touch it or bend my leg. No swelling, redness, or bruising.
What should I do about the bruising? I have bruising where my vagina meets my inner thigh. I have had this bruising for 4 years. Ever since i got my period when i was 10
This : This question is confusing to me. "bruising" occurs when something traumatic injures the blood vessels under our skin, breaking them, and causing bleeding under the skin. That is what we see as a bruise. I am assuming you have a dark area there. If it is on both sides, it may be a skin pigmentation issue. If it is on one side, i would be concerned that it could be a skin lesion. I would ask that you have a gynecological or possibly a dermatological (skin doctor) evaluation to assess the area and be sure that it is normal for you. ...Read more
Woke up with an insect bite on my inner thigh. Two itchy bumps with bruising around them. Should i see a doctor. Can't see the puncture marks.
Insect bites: Generally speaking there is no need to see a physician for most insect bites. However if there is significant pain at the site or if you start experiencing other body aches/muscle spasms, or if the bite itself starts to ooze or if the bruising starts getting really dark then i would definitely get it checked out. ...Read more
I workout out 3-4 times a week. I did legs yesterday and only did squats, no machines. I woke up with melon size bruising on my inner thighs? help????
You tear: Muscle when you lift weights. Not sure how much weight you are squatting. But I would rest that part of your leg workout for awhile. Ice the area if having a lot of pain. 20 min on. No ice rest of the hour. If you start bruising after all workouts. See your doctor for full work up. This may have been isolated incident. ...Read more
I played football season through upper inner thigh pain, took 1 mo off and rested completely but ran the other day and had intense pain w/ bruising, what should I do?
Ortho evaluation: With acute bruising after a period of relative rest, symptoms of pain and bruising are suspicious for an injury to the adductor or hamstring muscle-tendon units. The bleeding (bruising) could be coming from an injured muscle belly or an avulsion (detachment) of a hamstring tendon of the bony pelvis. A functional examination by an orthopaedic surgeon that includes x-rays is warranted. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am having bruising on my inner thighs and legs. There has been no trauma done to my legs. I am taking Aleve for non severe chest pains.
Could be the alleve: I hope your non-severe chest pain is not involving your heart. As far as the bruising is concerned, alleve and other drugs in the NSAID class (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) can cause your blood to take longer to clot and small blood vessel bleeding as well as stomach bleeding. Not sure how long you have been taking alleve but it should not be used on a regular basis. ...Read more
I have redlines/looks like bruising outlinning my inner thigh veins on both legs..its only on the veins no where else..feels sore?
Inflammation: Hard to answer without seeing in person, but the veins can be inflamed from standing for a long time, for instance on the job. When you are home, elevate your legs, apply a heating pad on a light to medium setting (but never sleep with it on you, can cause burns), or if you can take ibuprofen or naproxen (Aleve), do that. However it would be best to see your doctor for evaluation. ...Read more
