Painless bruises.

Since I was a teenager, I would find painless red bruises on my body. It wouldn't happen often. Maybe weeks, months and sometimes years apart. I don't remember having them for sometime, namely a few years and  I have started getting them again, but to me they are more frequent, say about weeks apart.
I would wake up one day with a bruise on my wrist, knee, or thigh. there is never more than one bruise at a time, but mostly on my hands and arms. The bruise would last for about a week or so and then fade away. Sometimes, becoming bluish as it fades. Any information on this would be helpful, especially since I am a little scared.

Thank-you.

Hello,

Anemia and deficiency of vitamins C, K, B12, or folic acid are the common causes of easy bruisability.Try taking iron tablets and multivitamins for some days and see if the symptoms improve.

If the symptoms do not improve, get yourself evaluated by a physician and look out for SLE, bone marrow disorders, liver diseases or leukemias Anti-clotting (anti-coagulants) medication also can cause increased bruising.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep us posted on how you are doing.
