These marks can be bruises and since you are a diabetic it needs further evaluation. 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. So check if you are taking any such medicines.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Hi Madam,

First-time dermatology poster. From last few years i'm getting rashes and liquid filled blisters after shaving my beard. I'm 30 years old and I tried
consulting doctors here in united states which didn't help.

I did some research on my own and did thing listed below.
1. Changing razor very frequently
2. Foaming the beard before shaving (non alcoholic foaming cream)
3. Applying after shave (non alcoholic)
4. Doing saving very slowly
5. Shaving after taking shower
6. Grew the beard for 1 months and then tried shaving , still no difference.


After shaving with in a day 1 or 2 i get rash/itching/red skin on my face where i did shaving and then a blister with liquid forms. After couple of hours this Blister gets punctured and liquid comes out of it. It gets dry after couple of hours and a yellow crust forms surrounding to it.After that it heals and skin will get normal after 3 to 4 days.

This is repeatedly happening after every time i do shaving.

I saw your response for one of the issue listed in this forum and thought you might give some inputs on my issue.

Any helpful information on how this can be cured would be really appreciated. As this is so annoying and leading me to lot of discomfort.

Looking forward to hear from your with great hope.
