Top 2 Butt Bruise Causes

  1. 1.Bruised Buttocks

    A bruise is the damage of the blood vessels that return blood to the heart (the capillaries and veins), which causes pooling of the blood. This explains the blue/purple color of most bruises. Bruises of the buttocks are common, given the location on the body.

    You can treat this at home with R.I.C.E - rest (exercise as tolerated), ice (10-20 minutes at a time), compression (this is pretty optional), and elevation (unnecessary for bruises at this location).

    Rarity:
    Rare
    Top Symptoms:
    constant butt pain, butt pain, butt pain from an injury, recent buttocks injury, butt bruise
    Symptoms that always occur with bruised buttocks:
    butt pain from an injury, recent buttocks injury, constant butt pain
    Urgency:
    Self-treatment
