My friend committed suicide by hanging himself and his head swell & turned purple. Why/how did this happen?
Suicide: I'm so sorry for your loss, at such a young age -- and perhaps your friend was very young also. I don't know what was happening inside him that he committed suicide, but many people who do that are very depressed. They also lose hope. Some may be intoxicated with substances, obliterating healthy judgment. Swelling and discoloration occur when circulation is cut off, as in hanging. ...Read more
When people die from being hung does their head always swell & turn purple? Is their a way to prevent it from happening?
Strange Question: Depending from the height a person falls determines mechanism of death. From a greater ht the rope often 'breaks their neck' ; death occurs more quickly. Otherwise the rope blocks the blood supply to the brain from carotid arteries, but the rope also keeps blood from draining away from the head, thus some swelling builds up. The sooner a mortician can have access to the body the better appearance. ...Read more
My 1 1/2 month old has a squishy purple looking bump on the back of his head. It's been there since he was born. What could it be?
A birthmark!: It is a capillary hemangioma . They are benign tumors that tend to grow but will resolve in time . The color will fade first and the hemangioma will shrink and disappear in due time .Just be careful when combing his hair cause it can irritate the birthmark, if you will take pictures to keep track of it. ...Read more

My one year old fell and hit his head now he has a huge lump and its dark purple should I be concerned?
Hmmm: If he/she fell from a height (a chair, table etc.) then you should see the doc just to be sure. Most falls while standing, walking or running do not cause severe injuries unless the child lands on something very hard or pointed. Lacerations need stitches of course, but bruises/lumps heal fine. If the child starts vomiting go to er. If the child acts very tired or lethargic/sleepy go to the er. ...Read more

You may have a condition called phimosis--the foreskin is too tight forming a ring around the head (glans penis) during an erection. Because it isa too tight, blood does not circulate normally and thus can cause symptoms you mentioned. This is treatable. I recommend seeing doc for eval.

It seems whenever i look through my right eye, all i see is a purple blur. What do I do/what is happening to me?

There are many causes but most relate to either the retina or the optic nerve since apparently your eye is not red, painful or had a history of trauma. You need to see an ophthalmologist right away to get this diagnosed. ...Read more
