    What does it mean if there is bruising under and around a cut? This has never happened to me before.

    I'm not a doc, but I think maybe you've injured surrounding tissues. I'd guess you must have pushed pretty hard...:hug:

    If it stays red, gets swollen, and or leaks icky stuff, get medical attention right away. You don't want infection in that!

    I'm hoping you're not needing SH as a coping mechanism today. Please be safe, hun.
