My nan has really bad blood clots so has to take a medicine to thin her blood. Today she pierced her shin on a wheelchair and it gushed out a watry blood I applied pressure and the blood stopped however as the day progressed her leg has prefusely leaked water I have applied pressure and lots of absorbing things but they become drenched in seconds.
Hi Courtney, the clear fluid is intercellular fluid (i.e. blood plasma) and its likely source is fluid retention. I don't understand the link between reduced blood clotting time (from blood thinners), edema and oozing and intercellular fluid, but that is what happens.
She should see her primary care doctor for a better explanation and advice.
