About once/month, a very benign movement will result in an immediate bruise on the palm side of finger or the underneath of a toe. My guess is a small vessel ruptures, it stings immediately and the bruise appears immediately.
I am otherwise a healthy 54yo female, taking HRT, no other meds, nkda, not overweight. In the last 3 years, I also occasionally get those red, pettichia type bruises on the forearm that last about one week. I am concerned about some peripheral vascular condition.

had a cbc a year or so ago and all is normal.

no tests done other than cbc.

Thank you for the information,

Some people get easy bruising, specially with age the skin becomes thin, possibility of bruises can increase.

Often the cause may not be apparent or mild trauma can cause it.

The other causes are low platelet count, allergy ,autoimmune diseases/ vasculitis etc.

Sometimes, coagulation defect can have a role.

Though your last CBC was normal,

I would suggest to take an examination by doctor..

Repeat blood tests can be taken.

Fresh vegetables, fruits can be helpful if there is any vitamin deficiency.

I hope this information helps.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know. If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.

would evidence of coagulations defects, von Willebrands, thromboctopenia, Ehlers Danlos, Raynauds, etc show up on basic cbc?

I know these are far fetched and I would likely have other symptoms, but want to know b4 doing another cbc. I am a very difficult draw.

CBC often includes platelet count.
That would detect thrombocytopenia.
For Von Willibrand, Raynaud's etc. different tests to check the levels of factors would be needed.
However, basic CBC level is often important.

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
