RE: Bruise after giving blood samples!!!
The blood leaks out of that tiny hole in the vein because you did not put enough pressure on it right after the needle was removed.
Bruising is just traumatised blood vessels leaking under the skin.
It will turn a nice purple and yellow and then be gone.
I once hit a blood vessel on my wrist. It was a tiny spot that got hit but my whole hand and forearm looked bruised. It was a grusome sight for such a tiny area of pain... the pain though at the time of hitting was eye popping.
