Question Axolotl cut himself

My albino male axolotl has somehow cut himself on his hide. It looked a bit deep, but it has been healing very well. I removed his hide and bought a new one. My only concern is that it looks like there is a little blood spot under his skin. Just wondering if there is any way to get rid of it.

Just let it heal, and watch for any infection.

Is it a blood spot or does it look more like an irritation? If you can post a photo it would be pretty helpful. This "Blood spot" is likely a bruise, and it shouldn't cause any worry. What you are describing could also just be an irritation caused by the cut. It's probably a good idea to test your water for ammonia because ammonia can hinder the healing process of an injury, causing this spot you are describing. It's probably a good idea to do a water change too just to be safe. Ammonia burns are pretty easily healed after a couple water changes.
If it actually is a blood spot, time will heal it. Blood spots are essentially bruises, and just like a bruise on your leg it will disappear over the healing process. Hope I helped.
