Broken Blood Vessels in legs

I have been taking Coumidin for an arrythmia since 1995. I am currently taking 4mg of coumidin a day; digoxin .125 once a day; cardizem 240 once a day. Two years ago I started getting broken blood vessels on my right calf, they now look like a large brown patch that covers both feet and legs up into the thigh area. I also have G-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase deficiency. Can you tell me what might be causing the spots on my legs, and how I can get rid of them?

None of the medications you are taking should cause problems with the veins.  Coumadin will make you bleed easier if there is damage.  A dermatologist should be able to give you a good opinion as to the source of the skin changes.
