Bruise on arm, spreading, hurting. Had melanoma in past. Reason?

i have a bruise on my arm that keeps spreading bad and it barely hurts. i understand to get better bruises will look worse overtime but i really did not bump it. Its in the inside of my arm so therefore i have no clue what could have hit it. I have had melanoma in the past which is why this is scaring me. I am 18 years old.

Dermatologist 's  Response

You are having purpura.

Melanoma has no relation with purpura.

You should be investigated to find out some cause.

It may infection,allergy ,connective tissue diseases or some internal or blood diseases.

For perfect diagnosis you consult dermatologist.

Oral vitamin C and K may improve the lesions.

Local thrombophob oint. would be helpful.

I hope you got my answer.
