Customer Question
I'm getting upper skin...
I'm getting upper skin surface red spots all the time. I scratch in the middle of the night and I have trails of upper surface blood spots. I bump into something and I get a huge splotch that could last for a month or two
JA: Some people call these cosmetic matters as if they don't matter at all. I believe how you look matters a lot and that our Expert will help you sort out whatever you are worried about. Is there anything else important you think the Dermatologist should know?
Customer: It's only on my forearms
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Dermatologist about your situation and then connect you two.

This is Dr David

how old are you?

do you take blood thinners like coumadin or aspirin?

you should see a doctor and get blood test to check your platelets and your coagulation times, PT/PTT/INR and liver enzymes to see why you are bleeding and bruising so easily.

I'm 54 years old, female, and have a long history of low blood count. Anemia that ranges from 6.2 to 10. It's hard to deal with, but seeing it possibly show up on the outside is disturbing. Makes me look like I have a contagious disease
Dermatologist: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

you need to see a hematologist to get your blood counts checked

and to get blood testing for clotting disorders.

you could have a bone marrow condition causing this

have you consulted with a hematologist before for testing?

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
