Heather:

I'm afraid I'm unfamiliar with the term.  "Actinic purpura" means "bruising from the sun."  I assume you have red marks of some sort, appearing in sun-exposed areas.  Creams (including Vitamin K) don't help that much.  Laser treatments can sometimes be of benefit.  Perhaps asking the doctor who gave you the diagnosis may be a good idea.

Best.

K-Derm Cream has been on the market for over three years and has proven very effective for senile and actinic purpura.  The cream helps fade existing bruises/red marks much faster than normal and can also help prevent further bruises.

For more information, call The S.F. Group at 1-800-324-7455.
