Brief Answer:
Possible bleed under the skin!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I have reviewed your information fully. This is possible caused by a bleed under the skin. Blood under the skin appears as dark/bluish etc and will be resorbed by the body’s system over 7-10days. There is no need for further medical intervention as healing is spontaneous. However, you should avoid using very warm water for baths.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thanks for using our services and feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
