I have this small bump on my upper inner thigh that kinda looks purple black and brown. And the skin is red an inch all around it what is this?
Purpura occurs when small blood vessels join together or leak blood under the skin.
When purpura spots are very small, they are called petechiae. Large purpura are called ecchymoses.
Platelets help the blood clot. A person with purpura may have normal platelet counts (nonthrombocytopenic purpuras) or low platelet counts (thrombocytopenic purpuras). See your doctor. ...Read more

I have a small lump under the skin, it's the size of a jelly bean. It is a bluish purple color. It has moved about 4 inch up my arm in a couple days?
Bluish lump: It's hard to know exactly what this is without seeing it or touching it. For this lump to physically move also seems unusual. It's possible u have a hematoma there and some blood may have tracked up your arm. Do u remember any injury to the site? Does it hurt to touch? Did anyone grab you? An enlarged vein (varicose) might appear like this too. Hope u can get some relief. ...Read more

Huge very dark purple bruise right thigh discovered 2 days ago and is getting bigger, no pain or tenderness feel a small knot under skin?
Bruise: You don't remember bumping into something? A large bruise without trauma is unlikely. The knot you feel is probably a blood clot under the skin that will dissipate on its own. The medications you listed should not cause your bruise. It will look worse before it looks better. If you think it was indeed spontaneous, you should really have your doctor check a CBC on you. ...Read more
