Hi
Thanks for using healthcare magic

Statins are drugs to decrease cholesterol level in blood and that would help to maintain blood pressure. Sometime, it could lead to some skin side effects like bleeding or bruising, yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice), Flushing of the skin etc. That would resolve after stop taking these drugs. Better to consult a physician for further treatment. In case, you need proper help, you can ask.
