Hematohidrosis is a rare condition in which there is oozing of blood from intact skin and mucosa. Signs include sweating blood, crying bloody tears, bleeding from the nose, bleeding from the ears, or oozing blood from other skin surfaces. Usually, the episodes improve spontaneously.

The bleeding is due to the rupture of the dermal capillaries and the actual cause is still unknown [1].
