Thanks for the query

I would like to know some more things about these patches which will help me suggesting you better.

1. Do they itch? Did you suffer from fever recently?
2. Have you used any new cloth or bed sheet? Any allergy to pets?
3. Do you have any allergies?
4. Are you on any new medications?
5. Are you easily bruised?

I need o know the answers to these in order to predict the cause.

I am awaiting your reply.
