Bruise on left thigh which is on going for a few months now very itchy and feels a little hard underneath the skinAfter I scratched from the bad itching I bruised myself even moreWhat could this be from I have had the same bruise on my upper left thigh for a few months now. It is on going.. sometimes it will be faded and then sometimes it is very dark. I do not recall bumping into anything or hitting my leg. It is very very itchy sometimes, I will scratch it do death but get no relief until i take my mind off it. I also get bruises on my right leg but not as frequent. I also keep getting heart palpitations. I have an ED also...I am getting help in that area but I dont know wether my symptoms are enough for a trip to the doctor/ ER...please help. Thank you!

Hi,
You are having fungal infection in the thigh which causes intense itching so much so that it causes bruise due to nail scratches.sometimes it causes infections and pain.
You apply anti fungal cream and oral anti fungal medicines.
