How to take care of a bruised chin bone?

5 days ago....I tripped and fell, with my chin bone hitting a piece of angle iron (on a trailer)...with most of my weight behind it. It was, of course, extremely painful and left what looked like a cut, but never bled. Although it doesn t look that bad from the outside, barely bruised, it is still extrememly sensitive to the touch and now feels as though it has fever...this is probably 2 inches below my knew, with the blow being directly on my chin bone....should I be concerned...seems silly to go to the dr. for a bruise.

Hello,

It is quite common after a trauma, and it will settle by itself. As of now you can use analgesics/anti inflammatory combination like Aceclofenac/Seratiopeptdase for symptomatic relief. You can apply ice packs for faster healing. If symptoms persist better to consult an orthopedic and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further. Wishing you all the best.

Regards,
Dr. Shinas Hussain, General & Family Physician

I fell against a bathtub 4 weeks ago and received a shin bone bruise . It had a lot of swelling and bruising right away covering most of my lower leg and then my foot also. X ray on week 1 was negative. I still have significant leg swelling and pain, especially after walking. I have a trip planned in 3 weeks that involves a lot of walking. Do you think it will be healed enough by then? Is there anything else I can do? Thank you

I fell a month ago on my elbow, the shoulder, then finally my head. I fell backwards. There is a slight swelling to the right of my elbow and acheness right below elbow up shoulder. It is much better than a month a go, but still bothering me. I teach PE and it has been hard not to use my arms, but have an ice pack I use often on it. When I rub my finger across the swollen part and about 3 in. down the front side of my forearm it feel strange, not tingling but not sure how to describe it. I can twist arm gently, raise arm, bend fingers.... but can not pick anything heavy up, at the beginning it hurt everywhere to lift a big glass. I just wonder how long it would take if it is a bone bruise or multiply bone bruises to heal? I broke the same shoulder a few years ago and it feels nothing like that, but never landed on my elbow before.

I noticed a dark bruise just above my left hip bone a couple weeks ago and don t remember how I did it. Since then it has gone away but my left side has been feeling very sensitive since I noticed the bruise....every once and awhile i ll get a small pain but mostly it just feels sensitive and uncomfortable.....almost a burning sensation at times. Sitting in my computer chair is the most uncomfortable. I ve also noticed my chest bone/sternum to be very sensitive at times....almost like it was inflamed and makes it difficult to take in a deep breath. Any suggestions would be appreciated? Thank you

hi. I totaled my car about 3 weeks ago and have a sizable welt on my shin still. It s bruised and the remaining bruising from the initial accident has spread throughout my leg down into my ankles since then. Nothing major but definitely noticeable. The bump has yet to go down anymore. It still aches sometimes and the bump itself us still bruised. Is this normal after three weeks?

My daughter is 16 , she has a bruise on her outer thigh about 2 inch in diameter. It s yellow and green in colour with a purple shape in the centre. Her bruise doesn t hurt at all . She had a little nose bleed today as well for the first time. If it s relevant , she had a painful bruise 2 weeks back in the same spot. She doesn t remember bumping into anything. Is there any cause for me to be concerned ?

Hi Doctor, My one month old baby stuck in the space between wall and the bed. Her body was on the bed and her face was below the bed with face facing downwards and she was on her tummy. It was found that her position was changed to rolling position from the normal lying back position when her head was stuck. she was crying badly and her face colour was blue. No swelling and no bruises were found on her face or head. After one week she started vomiting initially with little amount and then with high qantity and with high force. Later on, when she was 13 Weeks it was found that she had a chronic brain hamerrage but she needs no treatment, she was just kept in the hospital under observation for a week or so and her head circumference was monitered but she was perfectly fine and normal and was discharged with no treatment but just a routine and follow up check ups. Now she is 13 MONTHS old and her physical and mental growth is absolutely normal. My question is wheather that incident happened when she was just One Month can be a cause of her brain hamerrage and what is chronic brain hamerrage. And for her chronic subdural brain hamerrage its important that she must had any swelling or bruises on her face or head, which she didn t had at that time. Her head was stuck in the space between the bed and the bed but she didn t fall from the bed. And I want your expert opinion about my baby subdural brain hamerrage and what you think what would be the cause of her subdural brain hamerrage. And if that incident when my baby s head stuck between the wall and the bed is a probable cause of her brain hamerrage then why there was no visible swelling and bruises on her face or head. Or if the vomiting can be the reason of her brain hamerrage then kindly explain how? and whether that initial incident have any relation to that vomiting episode. thank you very much.
