Hi all, I’m new here and I don’t want this to be graphic but I was wondering if anyone else had this experience after self-harming?
I had a relapse a few days ago and long story short it looks to be fine, not infected and it doesn’t hurt but there is what appears to be a touch of blood under the skin where I did it in some places. Has anyone had the same thing happen to them?
Please let me know if discussion of this breaks the rules! I just got a bit worried and wanted to talk to people who might be able to answer my question :) Thanks!

Hi and welcome to the forum
Im sure the injury will be ok as it doesnt sound to be infected.
Do you know what triggered off this relapse?
Do you want to talk about it at all?
Hugs

Okay, thank you :)
I’ve recently been struggling a bit with an ED, and it just got stressful. I think I’ll be alright now though, I’ve already talked to my therapist about it, but I’ll try to reach out if I struggle again :) <3
Thanks again!

I'd keep an eye on it and get it checked if it doesn't look better in a week X
Sorry to hear your struggling X
