Yesterday I woke up with a large bruise on my right thigh and it was very itchy. I do not remember running into anything to cause it. Today I woke up and had about 6 bruises on my right thigh. My right thigh was so ichy. 15 hours later I have around 22 bruises all over my right thigh and they continue to ichy and now I have numbness that comes and goes in my right leg and there is a dull pain in my entire leg. Ang suggestions? I typically do not bruise easy and the bruises are only confined to my right thigh and continue to multiply.

I have read your query.

It looks from your details that you are having multiple bruises at your thigh with itch. These symptoms generally appear with allergies to a substance. It looks that this reaction occurred due to ingestion of substance or due to bite of an animal. At present you should not wait & should have an anti allergic preparation like steroid or cetrizine for relief.

It may sometimes be because of unknown medical condition. So my suggestion is to XXXXXXX a primary physician as soon as possible.

Hope this will help you.

With best wishes.
