Bleeding and Clotting Disorders
Brusied vein in the forearm
daughter`s arm has been hurting her for 3 days, she said it`s hard to hold her arm straight out, and it`s all black and blue. vain is all puffy and brusied.should she go to a doctor,or well it heil on it`s own?
did she pop a vain? thank you
It is really hard to tell you anything without the ability to see and examine your daughter. If it is painful and discolored, I would suggest that you do see her physician and get it checked out, as it may be more than a bruise or a ruptured vein.
