Dark Marks On Skin After Injury

Recommended Posts

I know someone posted a question about this a while ago and I don't remember if they got an answer, but I've just heard that zinc deficiency can cause slowed healing that leaves darker, shiny marks on your skin.

That is so interesting to know. My ss got hurt last yr on his bike and he had to have stitches, and it is black all around still and it has been worrying me. I guess i will have to get an zinc replacement.

When I was first diagnosed, I had bruising all over my body. I was seeing a hematologist because of anemia. He also ran some other blood tests, and they showed that I was not absorbing Vitamin K (which causes clotting). This was causing the bruising.

You may want to ask your doctor - maybe it's vitamin K that you need.
