Unexplained Bruising

7 posts in this topic

Hi all, I'm noticing some unexplained bruising on my legs particularly where my DH is badly flared. Does anybody else have this? I'm not on dapsone...

Appreciate any insight :-)

I have had small bruises that don't seem to have a cause. As I understand these now, they may be a result of a deficiency in vitamin K. I hope you will be absorbing better as you go.

It might not be a bad idea to run this by your doctor. There are a number of things that can cause unexpected bruising. DH can cause purple scars also. Are these in areas where you have previouosly had DH lesions?

Thanks :-) I have purple scars as well and these are definitely different. Unfortunately 'running this by my doctor' is not very straight forward where I live in India :-( To the point where I am considering moving back home, especially if my suspicion about my son's possible DH prove true...

So thanks for the vit K deficiency info. Gives me a lead!

Could it be from scratching? I've noticed several times that I've left fingerprint sized bruises on my legs from using so much pressure when scratching. Just a thought.

I wish I had an answer for you but do not. I & my hubs really, really do our darndest not to scratch. We have had places get very, very sore but no bruising. Yes, the purple discoloration but not bruises. I will say that a feature of celiac disease is easy bruising so it may be Vit K as 1Desperate says.

thanks Kmag - that's interesting because most of them are about finger size! One or two are bigger. I just never supposed I could exert that much pressure scratching but it does get itchy enough! Thanks again
