I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Should the ER be visited for a bruise on the perineum?

I took a large step(2 stairs thinking it was 1)off a ladder at work. When I landed I had a tearing sensation in my perenium and a few seconds of pain. Been a few days now and has had a weird pressure sensation for a few days plus now a bruise has formed on the perenium. Is all good or should I get it looked at?

My 9 year old daughter was running fast in the yard while the dog was chasing her. She ran into our very heavy solid concrete bird feeder right on her right hip & ab area. She hit it so hard she knocked it over. Should I take her to the ER! Goose egg & bruising.

I was prescribed apo-sulfatrim for a bladder infection, I am also taking sythroid. It is now day 3 of apo-sulfatrim and I noticed a lot of bruising- in my mouth and upper arms. I am wondering if I should go back to the ER where they prescribed the medication, or wait for my family doctor...
