Why do I have such easy bruising?

Why do I have such easy bruising? I barely get bumped and I bruise. I get bruises and I don't know where they come from. Most of my bruises occur on my legs. Is it a sort of vitamin deficiency or something?

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. Also consult a dermatologist for the itchy legs and get the diagnosis confirmed from the various possibilities explained above.
Hope it helps .Take care and please do keep us posted in case you have any additional queries. Kind regards.

I take vitamins every day and have taken iron pills with no results. Guess I should see a doctor considering it's been about 7 years since i've had a checkup.
