Kindly upload an image for review.

Detailed Answer:

Hi and thanks so much for this query.

It would be best to review an image so as to provide a personalized and helpful response.

However, thinning of the skin in elderly allows for easy bruising and skin changes. In most cases, this results from minor trauma and there is no need for any specific intervention.

This is even more common if you happen to be on blood thinners.

I kindly request that you upload an image for review.

I do promise to get back to you with more insights and helpful recommendations as soon as the requested information gets here.

Waiting for the requested information.
