Suggest Treatment For Bruise On The Arms
Seems like a Bruise. Should resolve in about 2 weeks
Hello, thank you for writing to us.
I am Dr. Kakkar (Dermatologist). I have gone through your query and I have reviewed the image.
It seems like a bruise - the yellow ring around it is the color change that normally happens in a bruise as it starts to resolve. This color change is because the hemoglobin in extravasated Red Blood Cells (RBC's) undergoes degradation into bile pigments.
This bruise should resolve in about 2 weeks. I suggest you take an oral vitamin C supplement once a day for the time being.
Feel free to ask further.
