Arm hurts when stretched. Why the sharp tearing pain? Why rashes?
Hello, I gave blood last friday. My arm has been hurting when I stretch it. Everytime I stretch it there s a tearing, sharp pain. I also have developed rash on my arm running up towards my underarm and down towards my wrist . They are tiny raised dots (white with a pinch of red). Is the pain normal? How long should it last? Why do I have rash now? Thank you.
Hi, From history it seems that there might be having thrombophlebitis giving rise this problem. Go for one antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicine course. Apply thrombophob cream locally. Rash on arm might be due to thrombophlebitis. Ok and take care.
Ice, rest and exercises to improve range of motion and strengthen muscles and tendons. An icing cycle that includes 15 minutes on and 15 minutes off. Perform the icing three to four times a day for about three days. After a few days of rest, and decreased pain and swelling, you can slowly resume your normal activity.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and informative and I will be glad to answer any further query. Take care.
