I don’t know that you can say it’s “trapped between skin layers”. As I understood the after-surgery effects of lymph and other fluids, it’s between the cells. That is, outside of the vessels which carry these fluids. As a result, they are unreachable by the normal fluid transport mechanisms. They are eventually reabsorbed - how I don’t know.
I also don’t know if discoloration is this same effect, but it sounds plausible.
