Are large dark brown bruises in the underarm a cause for concern?

I have two large dark brown bruises that appeared on the underside of my arm. They have white lumps in the center of them. I didn t hurt my arm that I am aware of. I was on a farm a week with dogs and that I held. I have also been holding some sick cats recently. Should I be concerned?

Rash with centre pallor or clearing may be a fungal infection or erythema chromium migraines or Lyme's disease etc. Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is.

Use moisturizer cream locally, avoid application of deodorants that irritate the skin. Use tablet Limcee once a day for five days. If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

My 23 year old daughter woke up with multiple bruises on her legs. They are red and brown in color and are so abundant the they almost appear to be a leopard print. The are also slightly painful. Her primary doctor took blood but has not gotten back to us and said he has never seen anything like this. Being that this all occurred overnight we are concerned.

Hi, I am 49 years old and 136 lbs. I am in pretty good health. I am concerned because both of my big toes had a bruise on the nail on one side. Now it has spread over both toe nails and has turned brown. It appears that my toe nails are trying to crack in those areas. Do I need to be concerned about a possible infection? I have no other symptoms and no order. Also, there is no pain associated with this.
