A doctor is the best source to address this question. He or she can order the necessary testing to better determine if something sinister is taking place. Nonetheless, from a nutritional perspective, a couple of thoughts come to mind.

One, many people are deficient in certain vitamins: vitamin D is one vitamin that particularly comes to mind. Therefore, consider a whole food vitamin supplement, one that includes at least 1,000 IU of vitamin D.

Two, consider taking a probiotic. Probiotics introduce additional amounts of good bacteria to the gut. From what I have read, this can help the immune system better fight off illness. Anyway, I hope this helps.

I am 50 years old and I can bump my arms or legs and get like a skin bleed under the skin .. this is slightly bump not a hard bump. I also can tear my skin so easily. I bumped my arm against a box lid yesterday and got a skin tear. I take an aspirin daily ..... My PT INR is normal. I will be getting platlet count soon ... anyone else have this problem. I go around all the time with these bright red places on my lower arms from just being touched by something..... will get them that looks like a scrape .. ... thanks
