A broken blood vessel in finger is an everyday occurrence. This is usually caused by trauma to the affected area. Pain is a common sign with broken blood vessels although it may be minor and will disappear after a period of time. Bruising and blood spots are the two kinds of broken blood vessels. Bruising is common and results in a purplish welt on the affected area. Blood spots are red spreading marks that may be due to medications, diseases and malnutrition.
The causes of broken blood vessel in finger can range from accidentally bumping into objects, jamming the finger in a door to hitting it with a tool, such as a hammer. Blood vessels can break due to age too. Elderly skin loses flexibility and bruises easily. Most often, the cause of a broken blood vessel in the finger will be apparent to the person affected. However, there are times when blood vessels may break for no apparent reason. This requires medical examination as most often blood vessels may break due to high blood pressure. Therefore, any sign of broken blood vessels for no apparent reason should be medically checked without fail.
Broken blood vessels in fingers may also be experienced with a rare skin condition known as Achenbach syndrome. Achenbach syndrome is most often mistaken for a cardiovascular condition. The most common areas affected with Achenbach syndrome are the palms or the fingers. Intense burning pain, swelling, inflammation, and bruising are common symptoms of this condition.
Most often, broken blood vessel in finger does not require a medical examination as it may heal within one or two weeks. However, sometimes, pain, swelling and bruising may become persistent, hampering daily activities. This can be remedied with various natural treatments. For example, a broken blood vessel in finger can be treated by applying immediate pressure with a cold or warm compress to the injured finger. Cold compresses are recommended as they will bring down any swelling associated with injury. Topical vitamin K lotions or creams may be applied to the affected area for relief. Blood clotting may also be enhanced by taking prescribed medication. Running lukewarm tap water over the injured area will also help with broken blood vessels in the finger. Pain medication may be taken although it should be done cautiously and with medical advice. Although most blood vessel ruptures heal within a number of weeks, persistent symptoms of blood spots or bruising should be looked into by a doctor.
A broken blood vessel in finger is, most often, a minor injury and should not cause any alarm. However, medical examination may be necessary if the blood vessel rupture is persistent and does not heal within the estimated period.
I have possessed the blood vessels popping in my hands over the years. It started developing in the mid 30s. I am passing my fifty years of age. This situation is not a life-threatening one; however, it is really troublesome. I have got to laugh at most of the available information on health. I smoke, drink and took cafe. I am energetic. however, I am not taking many exercises. I consulted my doctor but he cannot find the specific reason.
I have the belief the cause of broken or burst vein in hand is the weaker vein walls. Vitamin C is some sources to make vein walls, but we may need large amount of VC. I recommend grape seed. It can enhance the walls of blood vessel. It can work like Vitamin C, however, it is better.
I have received a blood vessel rupture in finger with no reason. Today, I feel pains at the joining place of my mid finger. It becomes dark purple. I am totally failing to bend it. From your article, it’s good to know this type of problem is also suffered by others. This makes me feel I am not alone. Hope I will get recovered soon.
I think my blood vessel broke playing the guitar very hard. My index finger takes a beating playing some rock songs. I think i will not play as hard although im getting old and i fear i will not be able to play soon. It just is not fair. I paid over $2500 for the guitar and now i have to be careful with my finger.
A tennis ball hit one of my fingers while playing cricker, at the tip with tremendous force. After one week, I took medication from a doctor for 4 days, the pain is better but the swelling is still there- the tip of the finger has lost it's elasticity. It's now 15 since the injury. Will my finger come back to norma?
This happened to me for the 1st time tonight. Good to know that its rather a common occurrence. I wasn't doing anything strenuous with my hands/fingers and all of the sudden it felt like someone was stabbing my finger. Hurt like....less than 5 minutes later I notice the area that was hurting, there is now a huge bruise there. I\'m only in my early 30\'s...hopefully this won't be a regular occurrence.
Thanks so much for this article. Over the last 10 years I have repeatedly burst veins in my thumbs or fingers on certain occasions when I press on something firmly. It is slightly painful and instantly swells and turns purple - but it always disappears after a few days (if I don't keep irritating it with additional pressure). Nice to know from this article that I have nothing to be concerned about.
My vein on the inside of my middle finger popped last night for no reason at all. I havent bashed it or squashed it. It was a sudden stinging feeling and very quickly turned purple. It isnt painful but im aware its there. Every now and then my finger tip has a slight throbbing/tingling sensation. Anyone know how long it should take to heal?
I've had that happen a few times. It happened last night on my right ring finger. Today for some reason my finger tip is kind of numb like it's asleep, I'm worried about that! It's never happened before.
