Hello. I'm here to ask about a small greenish/purple spot on my arm. It was from where an i.V needle was placed. It does not hurt. Just odd to me.

In brief: Bruising

It is just some bruising (blood under the skin) from the iv.
As your body breaks down blood under the skin, it changes color and will eventually disappear.
