Small bleeder: You may have a small vessel that's been bleeding repeatedly. If it's a solitary bruise, it's not likely to mean much. If you're taking Aspirin products, that will contribute to the ease of bruising, but is not necessarily a reason to stop aspirin. If you think the bruise is originating from a deeper structure such as a lumpy place within muscle, and it persists, get checked out. ...Read more

Not sure what insect bit me but it turned from bright red to purple "bruise-like" after a few days, its very itchy and a little swollen, what is this?
Reaction to bite: You are having an allergic (inflammatory) reaction to the bite. When you were bit the insect "injected" really tiny amounts of dirt, feces, and other garbage it has landed on into you. Your body released numerous chemicals and substances to fight off those particles. One of them is histamine which is responsible for some of the redness and itching. Apply ice and take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to help symptoms. ...Read more

It is what you called it. The white lines probably reflect fascial bands in the tissue. Give it time to heal by itself. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.

I smashed my hand today and at the point of impact, it turned purple like an instant bruise, but 15 minutes later it was just a little red, wondering Y?
The purple violet color immediately most likely resulted from some mild internal bleeding from a small blood vessel. The redness consequently developed from the trauma as well from your body's response to the trauma to repair injured tissue. Icing and an ace bandage can help gently compress the area of injury to heal along with elevation. You will likely bruise. See a doc you may need XRay ...Read more
Why did my bruise go from greenish-yellow to all red and purple? Am I bleeding under the skin again?
Normal Color change: A bruise is mainly made up of Red Blood Cells that are under the skin. The pigment in the blood cells goes through a series of color changes as it gets broken down in the body.

Hi about 5-6 weeks ago my daughter (2)kicked my ribs, the bruise stayed purple for weeks, now it's red, warm and burns. What can it be?
Possible infection: It could possibly represent an infection and I would consider being seen. It sounds like you initially had a hematoma in which bleeding can occur into the soft tissues creating a "bruise". A hematoma is basically some degree of bleeding into the soft tissues and this fluid can potentially become infected at which time it will become red and warm. If it is infected it would likely need antibiotic ...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?
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
