Question: I have a light purple bruise on inner thigh formed by an ablation. There is a pink dot the size of a pencil eraser and is the only spot that is sore. The ablation is 16 days old. Anything to worry about?

Brief answer....I don't think there is anything to worry
Detailed answer.....
Hello,
Thanks for the query.
I have read your query and understand your concern.
It is good that your bruise is getting healed . As far as a dark pink spot is concerned,I think it could have been the place where ablation might have been maximum.
I don't think there is anything to worry regarding that,however it would be good if you could send me a photograph so that I am in a better position to comment.
I hope it helps.
Best of luck
Thanks
