Donated blood. Area of the bandage is now red. What is it?

Hello. I donated blood 4 days back. After donating blood, nurse applied band aid on the area where needle was inserted. I forgot to remove band aid, and got it away after 2 days. What i found is that the band aid area got red rashes . Although i don t have pain and itching over thr. But still i am confused, is it something serious. I consulted medical store guy, he replied that it will get better by time. No need to worry, though he enquired about the pain in the area. But when i told i do not have such problem, then he told relax and it will get better by itself Please tell what should i do?

Welcome to healthcare magic.
I agree with medical store guy. I don't see any reason for you to panic. It could be a bruise. It will resolve in a matter of days. Other possibility is contact dermatitis to the glue of the plaster but then you should feel either itching or burning sensation. The antiseptic on the band aid can stain the skin as well. So I will recommend you to just wait and watch.
Hope this helped,
Take care
