Hi Doctor, I have 2 dark brown marks apeeared on my left arm . One at the place of the veins where they normally take some blood for the lab and the other one is just in the middle area between the wrest and the other spot.

Do not worry, it is ecchymoses.
There was leaking of blood while draining the blood sample.
Blood is collected in dermis and produce ecchymosis....purpura .
This is purpura after trauma.
It will go away by itself.
Initially it will become little darker, then it will fade and ultimately it will vanish.
Thrombophob oint. might be helpful for early regression.
You can take vitamin C and vitamin K.

You will be alright in few weeks.
I hope you got my answer.
