Said with much kindness and concern, a self-inflicted injury...a "Cutter". However...the red marks around the cut make me think of other answers, althought they could indicate other types of injury and i am rambling...

3 donated blood

I have one giant nipple in each antecubital space from donating plasma during my medical school years.

However, it looks like there are three puncture marks, as well as a tourniquet marking embedded in the skin.

I'm going with IVDA

I think a cutter. Great contest! Can't wait for the answer.

It looks like a deep puncture wound to me.

Pour some peroxide on it and call it a day?

Jonathan said...

Given the puncture marks, I suspect this is IVDA with perhaps a skin or soft tissue infection.

Amongst all the anti-impotency medicines available in the market, Viagra is the most highly sought after medication as it is the first FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) approved drug for treating erectile dysfunction in men. Moreover, viagra is famous worldwide for accelerating smooth blood flow to the penis and making men capable of triggering off erections required for sexual intercourse. Hence, you should get hold of Viagra as soon as you fall prey to erectile dysfunction and for more information on Viagra, visit the website http://www.viagraforce.com.

Generic Viagra is an oral treatment drug that has been developed to combat erectile dysfunction. The fundamental ingredient within the product is sildenafil, which essentially serves to work within the body, through the improvement of the blood supply into the penis, thus along for firmer, longer lasting erections.

Generic Cialis is a prescription drug, commonly used to help treat men having erectile dysfunction (ED) problems, also known as impotence.

Generic Cialis is slightly different from the other erectile drugs available in the market as it may work up to 36 hrs after dosing. Generic Levitra orks along with sexual stimulation to help achieve an erection when taken 30 to 60 minutes before sexual activity.

Generic Viagra contains Sildenafil and it is a prescription drug used to treat erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction is the inability of the penis to become rigid, or stay firm long enough to complete the sexual act.
