Bruise On Beast, Skin Peeling

For the past 12 days I have had a brown bruise on my left breast. I thought it may be a hickey so I messaged it hoping to get the blood flowing, the color became darker. After a week I started icing it, but then did research online that heat would work better. For the past 2 days I have been applying a heating pad, but it doesn't seem to be changing in size. The color is fading a bit, but the skin on the buise is starting to peel. My nipple has also been sore for the past week, but could this be from the icing and then heating pad? Could this be IBC?

Answer

Hard to say. The peeling could be from the icing and heating, as could the sore nipple. As for the original dark mark - that's puzzling. I'd watch your symptoms for another few days; if the bruise contines to fade and nothing seems to be worsening, then I guess you just write it off to a strange skin thing. If it doesn't fade, or seems to get worse, then best to see a doctor. Good luck - PJH
