What causes bruise and swollen veins on my fingers?

ON two occasions; a week and a half ago, and today, unexplained bruises showed up on a different finger. Tonight, my vein swelled. Prior to these incidents, I had been getting red pimples on my fingers and hands that were sore when rubbed. They seemed to be caused by lotions, but I stopped using those lotions and started only using Lubriderm. That helped, but I still have a few of them. What is your explanation? Monica

Hi Dear,

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of bruise and swollen veins on my fingers. This seems like an insect bite hypersensitivity reaction. I can also occur due to vericose veins. You may use a moderately potent topical steroid cream e.g either mometasone furoate 0.1% cream or triamcinolone acetonide 0.1% cream or betamethasone valerate 0.1% cream. Cortisone is a very mild steroid and it might not prove to be very effective initially when the inflammation is severe. If symptom persists then consult vascular surgeon for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari

I just noticed a bruise on my left leg right below my knee to the right. I have a noticeable vein there, but it doesn t stick up or swollen. It is only a little painful if I press down on it. Do you know what would cause the vein to bruise after having the noticeable vein for over 40 years?

Today my wrist suddenly started to throb and itch after I was lifting some reams of paper. When I looked down the vein was swollen and the area around the vein was swelling. That was about three hours ago. Now the swelling is still there but there is a bruise where the vein is and the area under it is black and blue. My hand is tingling and numb.

All of a sudden my skin from face to feet got hot and red. My hands turned white and the circulation in my hands did not seem right. I got the chills and became very cold and shaky. I took a shower because I thought maybe it was from a body lotion but I have been using it for several weeks. It is called gold bond. This happened on Sunday and again just an hour ago. I have no idea what is going on

I have had deep cysts in my underarms and upper inner thigh area. They are often painful and drain either by pressure or on their own. They typically appear right before I menstruate. I have a cream to apply for treatment but I am wondering if I can get microdermabrasion to help with the discoloration from scarring and for just a smoother unclogged underarm.
