I noticed since maybe October November bruises out of no where on the back of my legs the calves, behind my knee, on the side of my thighs and just saw a new one on the yesterday, all the bruises are very dark in color. I don't remember hitting anything, but I do remember lifting weights back in october, when I noticed the bruising out of no where I stopped lifting, but the bruises have not wentzwsy, very dark, in color. I am applying bruise cream.

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

No swelling, and they don't hurt

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

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

There can be various reasons of unexplained bruise.

The most common causes of such bruise are:deficiencies in vitamins B 12, C, K and folic acid can result in tissue or blood vessel weakness resulting in easy bruising,diabetes,side affect of certain medication,liver diseases like cirrhosis of the liver, hepatitis, platelet disorders.

Your lifting of weights back in october has aggravated the symptoms.

Following is recommended for you now:

  • You need to Ice the area on and off. Put ice in a plastic bag, wrap the bag in a towel.Do not apply ice directly to the skin. Wrap the ice pack in a towel.The cold reduces the blood flow to the area and therefore limits bleeding into the skin and reduces the size of the bruise.
  • . Zinc and folic acid or vitamin C supplements help prevent easy bruising.

Despite how they feel,bruises are not typically cause for concern.They will get resolve by itself .

Thank you
