Blood blister on finger. Popped with needle, bleeding continues. On kidney dialysis. Due to hiparin?
Yes doctor I had a blood blister in my ring finger . I punctured it by a needle sterlised by a flame. The blood came out but not stopped. I am a kidney patient having dialysis 3 time a week. What is the reason for drying blood slowely in my wound? It takes more than 1 1/2 days to stop bleeding from the wound. Is it because of hiparin during dialysis?
Hello sir/madam, The reason for continuous bleed could be due to heparin .Also platelet count could be low ,as can happen with dialysis patients. Kindly get your platelet ciunt checked. hope i was of help.
