Bleeding scar on inner elbow. Cause?

my partners 20 year old scar on his inner elbow has started to randomly bleed in two areas, it s not heavy bleeding -its just kind of sitting there...we have been transitioning onto a raw vegan dieat for about 6 months now, although he still consumes alcohol and smokes tabacco. he cant be scratching it with his ither hand as he has two incapacatated fingers on the other hand at the moment, his index and middle just wondering what might be causing it...he is 43 and works as a landscaper - this is also a big area of change in his lifestyle as before this he was DJing. we are perplexed to say the least!

Dermatologist 's  Response
hello dear,
thanks for the query.
sometimes the scar tissue gets infected and bleeds.
there can also be development of keloid which can bleed.
finally the most dreaded scar carcinomas can develop.

please meet a dermatologist for final diagnosis.
thank you
