I was attacked by 2 dogs. Neither pierced the skin, my arm is now swollen & covered w/bruises. Any touch is excruciating. How can I treat the pain?
But remember the dog encounter should be reported even if the skin was not pierced.
Using ice packs may help with the pain, use no more than 15 min at a time.
After 3 days, skip the ice and go to warm, moist packs--this should help speed the healing.

I hav dis bump on my arm n on the surface it look like bruise. When I pinch it, it feels like its a ball under my skin (like a really tiny one)it hurts?
Bruise: The blood vessel is punctured when blood is withdrawn during a blood test. If the vessel is not compressed long enough, blood will leak out of the vessel giving a bruise. Holding direct pressure with a cotton ball for 10 or 15 minutes is usually enough. However if a person is on platlet inhibitors such as asprin longer might be necessary. ...Read more

Could a TB skin test be false positive if the needle was to deep? My arm bled after the test and now that its healing I have a large purple bruise
Wouldn't accept it: The test is standardized to represent the reaction to material places between layers of your dermis (skin) and would become invalid if it went too deep and bled. It deserves repeating. I would worry that it could be falsely negative if the test material dissipated into deep tissue. That could lead to a delay in proper treatment. A false positive would be unlikely& need eval ...Read more
Can hypothyroidism lead to bruising easily and dry skin and dry scabs that won't heal I have 2 small ones on arm my mom & aunt have hypothyroidism?
Yes, for dry skin: Untreated hypothyroidism can certainly cause dry skin, but it would be unlikely to cause bruising or scabs. I see that you are on advil, (ibuprofen) this can contribute to bruising. Considering your family history, it would be reasonable to get a free T4 and TSH level done to look at your thyroid function. ...Read more
