Little bumps under skin after brick tossing.
Hi doc, hope you are well.
A month or so ago I got a bit silly and smashed my arms in with a brick. The bruises were quite spectacular. It's healed now, but I feel tiny little bumps under the skin where the brick hit the hardest (on the sharp edges). What are those?
Thanks doc.

Dear Clueless
What on earth made you do that?! I'm sure it solved no problems! The bumps you are feeling are scar tissue under the skin caused by the bleeding. It should get better with time.
