Hello and thank you for sending your question.

Your question is a very good one and I will work on providing you with some information and recommendations.

As we get older our skin becomes more thin. This can predisposed to easy bruising. This is especially the case with minor trauma.

If you are noticing excessive amounts of bruising however, it might be necessary for you to visit with your Sometimes if the platelet count is low this can lead to easy bruising. Also if there is some type of disruption of the normal Coagulation in the body this can also cause bruising.

If this is becoming more of a problem I would suggest that you talk to your doctor about this as soon as possibe.

I don't think you are in any immediate danger but I would like you to have this investigated.

Thanks again for sending your question. Please let me know if you have any additional questions regarding this concern.

Sincerely,

Dr. Robert

Hi, My index finger and the tip of two other fingers have been swelling for about two or three weeks. They don t feel painful or itchy at all and there is no peeling skin or bruises. I went to see a doctor a few days ago and have soaked my hand in hot water (hottest I can bear without causing skin burn). I was told they should turn blue and that should relieve the swelling, but after soaking for a few times there hasn t been any difference so far. Just wondering what might be the cause of the swelling and what should I do? Thanks, Lydia

I was hit with a baseball in the shin three weeks ago. My leg and ankle have been swollen since. At first my ankle turned black and blue but that has gone away. Now the spot that was hit is turning red and pain has moved below and above the bruise. The more active I am the more it swells and hurts

I got hit by a baseball in the calf muscle 4 weeks ago. The bruising travelled down my leg and is still apparent but is slightly fading. My concern is that i have a bump where the ball hit and it is still very sensitive. Should I be getting this looked at?

about two weeks ago I fell and hit my shin pretty hard, there is still bruising there. The thing that is concerning me is that there is alot of fluid build up in my shin area and it stays indented when pressed on. Also there is numbness where I hit my shin.
