Why does the skin on your arm around the area blood is taken from bruise after a blood test?

Bruise: The blood vessel is punctured when blood is withdrawn during a blood test. If the vessel is not compressed long enough, blood will leak out of the vessel giving a bruise. Holding direct pressure with a cotton ball for 10 or 15 minutes is usually enough. However if a person is on platlet inhibitors such as asprin longer might be necessary. ...Read more

It sounds like you: have a phlebitis or inflammation around the needle stick. It could be infected. You should get it checked out. It might just be red and hard and go away with hot packs which you can start now by placing a warm compress over it a few times a day. The hardness can last for a while but it should not be red and hurt so much. Get it checked. ...Read more

Traumatic phlebitis: It is not uncommon for the vein to be inflamed after being punctured for a blood draw. It can take 3-4 weeks to resolve. If the area gets warmer or redder or more painful or you get a fever, it may have become infected and you need to see a doctor. In the meantime, anti-inflammatory creams like Voltaren gel might help it improve faster. ...Read more
