scar filling with fluid and blood
An_253378 posted:
My 13 yr old son had a bicycle accident 6 weeks ago and had several small scrapes on the side of his knee. The scrapes have left scars and one of the scars is round about the size of a quarter. Inside the scar, about the size of a nickle, it has filled with fluid. He poked it with a needle and fluid has drained from it which is now fluid and blood. It just started hurting during the night when he laid on it and filled with fluid today. Is this something to be concerned about? Thanks!
