Bruised Red On The Thigh After Pat Too Tight?
Good afternoon doctor, I want to ask you about red spots blue and red spots on my thigh. Earlier I played pat on my thigh like I was tapping it too hard and repeatedly kept playing my thighs right and left there were red and blue spots why yes, quite a lot. Will it disappear itself or is there another serious illness? thank you
Thank you for the question.
Reddish and bluish spots on the thighs, if they occur after the thighs have been beaten can naturally occur due to rupture of blood vessels. Naturally, if there are no other complications, this condition can improve with the following steps in 1-2 days:
Rest the legs where the thigh is experiencing complaints from excessive physical activity, including walking or running far and up and down stairs
Compress with ice cubes on your thighs
Not wearing tight pants and made from rough
Live a healthy lifestyle and not carelessly take medicine
If within 1 week the spots continue to appear, then you should be vigilant. Concerned, this condition occurs related to blood clotting disorders, for example due to hemophilia, immune thrombocytopenia, vitamin K deficiency, side effects of drugs, leukemia, and so on. Frequently, if this is the trigger, complaints will appear accompanied by other signs of bleeding, such as prolonged menstruation, frequent nosebleeds, bleeding gums, easy bruising, and black bowel movements. It could also be, other conditions, such as vasculitis, allergic or irritant contact dermatitis, skin infections, excessive exercise, dengue fever, and so on can also cause reddish and bluish spots as you experience them.
If this is the case, immediately check with your doctor for further evaluation and treatment. If it is suspected to be serious, the doctor will generally direct you to undergo a blood test or other supporting tests, even refer you to the right specialist, such as skin or internal medicine.
I hope this helps.
