I have repeated dark purple blood spots on my arms. What can be causing them?

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

My over all health is excellent. I take good care of myself. I eat no grains or dairy and lots of vegetables, fish protein, no coffee. I exercise regularly and am a generally happy peron.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I know of that relates to these purpble bumps.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

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.
