Anyone have any experience with getting a little welt after getting a blood draw? I had mine drawn about an hour ago, and now I've got a super itchy bump right where they drew it, like a mosquito bite. It's a little weird as I've never had this happen before. Any similar experiences would be appreciated!
Don't scratch it, you skin is most likely irritated, especially in the healing process, even though it was like a microdot of a puncture. everybody's body reacts differently.
When I clean the fishtank, and have my arm on the edge of the top of the tank, just the pressure on there ( I don't even notice it at first ) causes a later itchy rash look, which results in these little bumps and a red spot, always in the same spot on my upper forearm. the welt may have been caused from you itchy it or aggitating it. I remember sticking a nicotine patch on the same location on my forearm (this was before the fish tank incident) and I pulled it off, hours later I had almost an alergic reaction looking thing, almost to the point I thought I was alergic to the adhesives in it, but the bumps and welts went away sooner after I quit dickin' with it.
