I noticed bruise-like discoloration on upper inner thighs and vaginal area. This is not sex related. Should I be concerned?
No .This could be senile purpura.However have a blood count and Bleeding time/clotting time done to rule out a bleeding disorder..

Is there any whitish discolouration also? Another differential diagnosis could be lichen sclerosus, but this is not common.
