I got a couple small cuts on the front of my thigh. Are bruising, a small amount of redness, and leg soreness normal?

Can be: This can be tricky because soreness and redness are characteristics of both recent trauma and infection. I would monitor the area to make sure that it isn't getting worse. Increasing erythema (redness), pain, edema (swelling) and or induration (hardening) of the skin are signs of infection that should be evaluated. I hope this helps. ...Read more

Need sonogram veins.: You should have a venous ultrasound to look for dvt. Pregnancy and sedentary life style puts you at increased risk for dvt.

Time for an eval: Any time you have an injury that is not getting better as you would expect, or is getting worse with increasing pain or redness, foul discharge, etc. You should see a physician for an evaluation. You don't want a minor and easily treatable infection to turn into something much more serious or potentially life threatening. Go get it looked at to make sure it is nothing serious. Good luck. ...Read more

Diffuse: Such diffuse symptoms are difficult to tie together. One has to focus on the area with the most pronounced discomfort which may be your knee with other symptoms being referred from or secondary to the knee disorder. Start with a consultation with an orthopedic specialist who will investigate your knee for any internal derangement. Try taking magnesium and calcium to relieve recurrent muscle cramps ...Read more

Boil or abscess: May have started as a plugged up pore leading to a pimple and then a larger cyst forming which can become infected and become a boil or abscess. It may need to be lanced and drained by a doctor, treated with oral antibiotics. Warm compresses, topical antibiotics can be used in the interim until you see a doctor. ...Read more
