Lumps, bruises, and rash on extremities, itchy and painful

I get these lumps , bruises, and rash daily and on random areas of my extremities. They sem to come from internally b/c I have not done anything to hurt or injur myself, however....if I do injure myself this is how my body reacts to the injury. It itches very badly and in pretty painful. I have had these for over 3 years. I am anemic and with other nutrient deficiencies, I also had gastric bypass surgery about 6 yrs. ago. I have kept my weight off.
