Bruising under eyes could this be from eczema?

Bruising under eyes could this be from eczema?

Doubtful: Eczema can cause dryness or flakiness--bruising results from trauma--however, if you are rubbing or scratching the area, this can cause bruising.

Bruise read on..: Sometimes a hit over a bone can lead toa bruise with capillary breaks. This can lead to anatomosis (capillaries joining up and forming a long term reddish mark. It may diminish over time and skin thickening as one ages. Have it seen once by a doctor/dermatologist.

Should I be worried about ocular side effects of Topomax? I.e. Prolonged headache, pressure around/behind eyes, bruising under eyes and exhaustion?

Should I be worried about ocular side effects of Topomax? I.e. Prolonged headache, pressure around/behind eyes, bruising under eyes and exhaustion?

See below: What you’re talking about are not commonly known or documented side effects from Topamax (topiramate). That said, if they clearly started after taking Topamax (topiramate), then contact your doctor to discuss your concerns, especially if the symptoms start to become more severe. Your doctor will want to develop a plan before the symptoms become intolerable, and if the plan is to stop Topamax (topiramate), you may need to do so slowly.

Yesterday a bruise suddenly appeared under eye and spread a little today. Will it go away? Should I continue baby aspirin? Had headache a day before

Yesterday a bruise suddenly appeared under eye and spread a little today. Will it go away? Should I continue baby aspirin? Had headache a day before

Vague: Need a thorough history and exam. Has this bruise appeared before, cause, duration, severity, affecting the eye, etc.? Could be some sort of sinus infection if the headache is coming on. If this continues, I would see a dr. As a preventative action.

Hi, I'm 25 and I bruise very easily. Many unexplainable. Also with worsening/darkening under eye circles. Could it just be age or vitamin deficiency?

Hi, I'm 25 and I bruise very easily. Many unexplainable. Also with worsening/darkening under eye circles. Could it just be age or vitamin deficiency?

Multiple Problems: Dark circles under eyes can be from allergies or sleep deprivation or both. Easy bruising can be caused by blood disorders but can also be caused by certain vitamin supplements like fish oil, flax seed oil or other high omega 3 fatty acids. If you are taking any of these stop them for a while and see if your bruising improves. Also be careful with aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, etc.

Unexplained bruising left eye socket - just noticed this, it's on inner side of eye, I haven't hurt it at all?

Unexplained bruising left eye socket - just noticed this, it's on inner side of eye, I haven't hurt it at all?

Trauma?: You must have rubbed the area without realizing for the result is soft tissue trauma. As long as vision and movement of the eyeball is fine use some heat and alternate with ice for resolution

Clotting problems: Bruising not associated with trauma suggests a problem with blood clotting. Aspirin, certain prescribed medications and even some over the counter supplements can be responsible. Unexplained bruising can also be caused by a serious, underlying health problem. See a physician immediately.

Seek consultation: This constellation of symptoms should be evaluated as soon as possible to rule out any complicating condition that may be prolonging your recovery or those that might be more serious. Additional information is needed. Please see your primary care physician who will know more about your medical history and can make an accurate diagnosis. You do not want to ignore these symptoms.

Unclear request: I am not sure the consulting panel understands your question? Are you using "slang" to ask about your genital area? If so, I would direct your inquiry to urology team, not ophthalmology.

How to report bruising on ribs and black eyes?

How to report bruising on ribs and black eyes?

Bruising: A little unclear as to where you are going with this question. Certainly one can suspect spousal or parental abuse but there could be a history of trauma or recent cosmetic surgery that may relate to this finding.

Could a bruise under my eye be from a bad headache?

Could a bruise under my eye be from a bad headache?

Eye exam: An eyelid bruise ; headache are not typically related unless there is a history of trauma. This may be a coincidence. If the headache is new, persistent or severe you should see an eye doctor. There are rare orbital (the area around ; behind your eye) conditions that can cause bruising and headache or eye pain. These conditions are very rare and can include lymphangioma, amyloidosis or leukemia.
