(Bloody sweat; Hemidrosis)
This rare condition is caused by hemorrhage from the sweat-pores. The blood is mixed with the sweat as it escapes from the uninjured surface of the skin. It may follow as a rare effect of violent emotions, or be due to vicarious menstruation. It has appeared in the new-born with fatal result. It is generally limited; the parts usually affected being the face, hands, feet and umbilicus. The amount of blood lost is small and the condition may be regarded as a symptom of hemophilia.
Treatment is based upon the causative condition. Crot. relieved one of my cases.
