This can be very serious.

what is your exact question about the situation

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
what could it be
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

Vasculitis, an autoimmune disease.

This is where the body attacks its own small blood vessels.

It can cause bruising and itching.

She needs an immediate work up: this can also reflect other autoimmune disease, such as lupus, drug reactions, and other serious problems, including blood diseases.

IT is not something to wait on.

A neighborhood clinic is an option as it will be on sliding scale, so are university teaching hospitals clinics.

Right now, I would take her to an urgent care for initial exam.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

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.
