Customer Question

Hi I have just been away to Tenerife and on my second day just after a shower a starburst vein started to bleed profusely. I went to the medical centre where I had an ultrasound scan, the radiologist said I had a blood clot but not deep vein. The doctor I saw did not speak very good English but indicated that it was not a major concern and gave me stugeron and some cream. She said I was OK to fly and gave me a bandage which I used. I am now home, but slightly worried, should I go to the hospital??
