Hello,

This situation could be related to increased blood vessel fragility. Anyway, I would recommend checking coagulation tests in order to be sure that your symptoms are not related to any hematological disorders.

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

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
