Sometimes my feet randomly turn a purple/black color with purple spots near my ankles and it's hard to move my toes. ?

Specific picture.: Somethings just can't be evaluated without actually seeing the issue at hand. I fear that this is one of them. Randomly occurring skin discolorations are sometimes impossible to explain, let along come up with a treatment plan. I suggest you take a picture of the event and upload it so a visual appreciation can be made. I feel certain that a Healthtap specialist can then help you. ...Read more

Rainbow Bruise.: Sounds like a typical variation on the breakdown of the blood trapped under the skin. Time will eventually remove almost all of it. If there is a concern, then see your doctor for an exam and evaluation. ...Read more

Kicked: This certainly sounds like a deep bruise , especially when you describe the color changes . Ice and nsaids if you can take them will help as will rest . Bruises can turn all sorts of colors as the blood is broken down by enzymes that leaked from broken blood vessels ...Read more

My 5 year old has purple bruise-like spot on ankle. Hard and raised on edges. Pediatrician said use hydrocortisone which has had no affect. What now?

Many possibilities.: Hard to say without a photo, but it could actually be a bruise. I'm assuming it appeared recently, so it's not a birthmark. Other possibilities include an insect or spider bite, an allergy to something he/she came in contact with, or a focal infection. If Hydrocortisone had no effect, i would recommend an examination by a dermatologist. ...Read more

Not likely: Your "coumadin nurse" or whomever helps you keep range 70-100 should be consulted for advice. They will likely suggest you take 1/2 dose for one evening, as you are not very far from target range. ...Read more

I have a raised purple spot on my leg which has been there for quite some time now. Around it are rash-like marks and it all itches. Any clues?

I have a raised purple spot on my leg which has been there for quite some time now. Around it are rash-like marks and it all itches. Any clues?

Exam needed: If the discolored lesion is only days old, it could have been an insect bite with some leakage of blood under the skin. The associated itching makes this more likely but the lesion would clear after 10 days or so. Cortisone type ointment would relieve the itch. If this lesion has been present for weeks it's best to have it examined by your physician or dermatologist. ...Read more
