Itching and bruises

What would be causing me to itch all the time and now I notice I have bruise marks on me?

Hello,
Bruises can be there due to scratching after itching. But other possibilities which could cause both are Anemia and deficiency of vitamins C, K, B12, or folic acid, bone marrow disorders, liver diseases or leukemias.

Get your hemoglobin, vitamin B12,K, C, folic acid levels and liver function tests done.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
