Blood pockets that burst

06/07/2006

Question:

Hello! Can you please answer a question, I bruise very easily. Twice I have had (for no reason) a pocket of blood swell on the outside of the skin. It feels like a bite or itching spot and when you look at it, it is a swollen spot about the size of a nickle or like a small balloon sticking up out of the skin and then it will burst (not outside of the skin but inside) Is this something serious or not.

Answer:

It doesn't sound serious, but it would be helpful to have your primary care physician look at it to be sure. Good luck!
