Bruising after blood draw, Should I be concerned ?

I had blood drawn about a month ago and it turned into this huge bruise that took two weeks to go away. I had blood drawn again 4 days ago in the other arm. It bruised but not as bad as the last blood draw. Now it has turned into a dark red bruise and doesn t look as it did earlier today. I doesn t really hurt all that much. Should I be concerned ?

Dear thanks for posting query.You need to worry only if it increase in size,become painful.Minor bruising is acceptable after blood donation.Apart from blood donation if after any minor injury, if you are having bruising frequently then you need to see your doctor for some investigation for this.bye and take care,and keep it up the noble gesture that you are doing.
