My husband has some blood blisters on his forearm

my husband had a cluster of what looked like blood blisters pop up on his forearm . he said there was no pain, itching or any other problems with them but we did not know if maybe it was something leading to another more serious issue?

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
May be they are Actinic Purpura, Kindly get him examined by a Dermatologist so that he can examine him and rule out the exact cause. They are usually harmless and will subside on their own. He may not need medications if they are confirmed or the Doctor may prescribe him steriod topical preparations. He should be avoiding going out in the sun between 10am and 4pm and use a Sunscreen lotion when ever he moves out.

Good Luck.

my husband had a blood blister on the back of his ear on the upper part, while showering he rubbed it and now it is bleeding. He takes 1 81mg aspirin per day. How or what can I do to stop the bleeding. I have tried applying pressure for awhile but every time I take the gauze pad off it starts to bleed again

My husband had a boil type blister about the size of a grape on his scrotum. It popped and had blood, pus and dark smelling liquid in it. He said he had one before and his doctor told him it was from stress. We had been separated for a week. I am suspecting an STD or genital herpes. What you think?

My husband is diabetic and about 5 days ago he started complaining about some bumps on the inside of his leg that were paining him. He is 65 yr old and this is the 1st time he s had anything like this. It looks like a great big pimple and some of it busted and just dark red blood came out. The one on the inside of his left leg has left a hole about the size of a pea and I put neosperm on it. The one on his left leg did bleed but not bad. Also use alcohol on them to stop the bleeding . What else do I need to do

i was diagnosised with thyroiditis 3 years ago. I have been on synthroid for almost 3 years. But before that, I had an infection and was placed on oral doxycycline. we have a pool and i was out in the pool all weekend with sunscreen on. Then my daughter and i went to the beach, stayed about 2 hours, walking around and sitting on the beach. no problems. then on our way home, i started to get sick, nausa and diarrhea. by the end of the night, i was having chills and teeth chattering. thought it was from dehydration, but i was hydrated through out the day. ever since then, every time i am in the sun and get a slight redness, i go through the same thing again. it has been going on for 3 1/2 years. no one seems to know what is the problem. i have been tested for lupus, and so far it has come back negagtive. I also had a ct scan to rule out carsonoid syndrom. That was negative also. I am going to be tested again in december for lupus. not sure if anyone else has anything similar to this. my doctor doesn t know where to go from here, but she keeps trying to find something by reading.... so for now, i mainly hibernate in the house on hot days. boo boo, cuz i like the sun! also something i forgot, I am on hormone replacement and it has helped with alot of the red face with being in the heat. so who knows what is the problem... any suggestions?

hi! so im a tan addict and i tan alot. i recently was tanning (in a tanning bed!) using a tingle lotion and a day later i noticed little white spots everywhere on my tummie and back. I googled this and realised that it could possibly be Tenia Versicolor. But is it possible that its just a reaction from the tingle lotion and i shouldnt worry? however, if it is tenia versicolor, i already know i can use antefungal creams (Etc) but i also know that isnt gonna make it go away for ever. is there a way that i can get rid of tenia versicolor for ever? a pill or shot maybe?

I recently had an excision for a superficial spreading melanoma, that did start growing veritically, from my upper right shoulder on my back. I still have stitches and am waiting for this pathology to determine if the margins are clear. Since the excision I have veins that are becoming darker blue under that right arm pit, shoulder and chest area. Even after lots of sunblock and reapplication I did get a sunburn, however the joint of my shoulder and armpit meet where one of these dark blue veins are I burnt around the vein but did not burn on nor about 1/4-1/2 an inch all around this vein. Is this normal or something I should contact the doctor who did my excision? I don t want to bother him if unnecessary, but has been a week since excision and have one more week till I go back to see him.
