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.

Vit B 12 deficiency also causes numbness of the hands or feet.

If the symptoms persist even after taking iron and multivitamin supplements,then pls consult a physician and get other possibilities ruled out.First of all,hypothyroidism has to be ruled out by getting a thyroid profile.Then SLE, bone marrow disorders, liver diseases,excessive alcohol consumption or leukemias have to be ruled out. Anti-clotting (anti-coagulants) medication also can cause increased bruising.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.

I've been getting bruises on the back of my thighs for the past 6 months or so,
I wake up with them, small little bruises all over the back of my thighs.... they go away after a couple days, but new ones appear. I'm experiencing no pain at all, even if i touch them... Since this has happened I've been more aware of what im doing on a daily basis and haven't hurt myself or bumped into anything..... Im not sure whats going on...
