Although you note specific spots on just your elbow you may need blood tests. Sometimes patients with low platelets from idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura presents with low platelets and they have these really small dots in skin.

Should I have this lump in my arm checked out? I had a major bruise on my arm about 3 inches round. A week later, to hide it, I stuck a bandaid on it big enough to cover up for the day. When I removed bandaid that night, I had a lump in my arm about the s

I would advise having the lump medically evaluated. Any persistent swelling or mass should be evaluated. The doctor you see may want to measure and observe it with a recheck to be sure it is not increasing in size, or they may want to biopsy it to be safe. If you have any redness, increased swelling, red streaks from the area, or fever then you must be seen immediately as this could signify infection.

Bruises unexplained

This very common question in medicine has been studied a lot. Minor injuries can sometimes lead to unexplained bruising 48 to 72 hours after a bump or other minor injury. If this is a new event, a one time event and there is no indication of any other medical condition this is just a bruise from a bump or other minor injury.

I have a dark circular bruise on my left arm and my whole upper arm is sore after an injection, is this normal?

Can happen

Blood
dark circular bruise is most likely due to small amount of blood that seeps under the skin after the injection;normally your entire arm should not be swollen or sore, but on occasion it does happen, sometimes cellulitis of the site of injection can occur, contact your doctor for further evaluation
