Hi,

Please inform the doctor who’s treating you. Coumadin inhibits coagulation and one should make sure that you don’t have any ongoing low-grade bleeding into the structures below your deepest skin layers.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Alexander Davis, General & Family Physician
