Brief Answer: Discoloration due to trauma during insertion... Detailed Answer: Hi there, Thank you for following up. In this case, the discoloration of the insertion site (turning black) is due to the trauma during the insertion of catheter. It is a normal small complication of such procedure. It is not worrisome. Keep applying ice or cold compresses together with otc heparin cream. If no improvement within a week, should consult a physician for further evaluation. All the best! Dr.Benard If you are satisfied with my answer, kindly close this thread and send your feedback through rating it.
