i had a dark purplish black bruise after blood being drawn it lasted 3 weeks. now under the skin where the bruise was is a pea size knot. its firm and tender
You might be having superficial thrombophlebitis which is probably a small blood clot and inflammation of the vein (as you said, knot it is at the site where blood was drawn).There is no need to worry. Just apply warm compresses or hot fomentation 3- 4 times a day. In case, swelling and pain worsens , please visit a doctor who might give you anti inflammatory medications like brufen.
