The Cause Of The Skin Often Bruises For No Reason?
I often get bruises when I’m tired like pulling a heavy load, how do I deal with it and treat it
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Bruises on the skin (petechiae, pupura) can indeed appear, one of which is due to excessive physical activity, such as when you lift or pull heavy weights. Not only that, these bruises can also appear when you cry too much, cough, vomit, walk, run, or hike, especially in a hot environment. These bruises can appear anywhere on the body, but they are most common on the lower legs, especially the calves.
What is the mechanism of this bruising? Many experts believe that bruising after physical activity or strenuous exercise occurs due to static in venous blood flow (blood flow is not smooth) due to failure of the muscle pump to return blood to the heart. There are also those who associate this with vasculitis, which is inflammation of the blood vessels. If no other complications are found, bruising will generally go away on its own in less than 1 week after activity.
You can reduce your risk of bruising by doing the following:
During activities, use stockings --- for example, if bruises often appear in the thigh area, use special stockings for the thigh when lifting or pulling heavy objects. Pay attention to your posture, don't bend over when pulling or lifting heavy objects so that the energy you use becomes more effective. bruise, rest, elevate the side of the body that is bruised, then compress using ice cubes. After 1 or 2 days, replace it with a warm compress to reduce blood clots. Avoid applying any ointment or medication to bruises on the skin. Use comfortable clothes and pants, not tight. Exercise regularly, but do it with gradually increasing intensity, duration, and frequency, not suddenly. If the above efforts continue to recur, you can immediately see a doctor. A thorough examination will be carried out by the doctor to rule out other possible causes of bruising that need to be watched out for, for example due to drug side effects, infections (eg scarlet fever, scarlet fever), thrombocytopenia, leukemia, scurvy (vitamin C deficiency), vitamin K deficiency, and so on.
I hope this helps.
