I'm not sure what you mean? Sometimes meds cause me to itch so bad that I end up scratching and bleeding. Is that what you mean? Or do you actually have blood pockets?

Do they itch?I recently just started having some weird things show up on my arms too. At first I thought I had a bunch of mosquito bites, but that can't be it.

Bull, before I went in the hospital and was diagnosed with COPD and CHF I had many reddish purple spots which were a bruising of sorts. I would wrap the cloth handle of my shopping bag around my wrist and there would be a band of purple blood bruises later from the pressure of the handles. I had these spots everywhere on my arms where I would evidently hit something that wasn't sharp enough to cut but bruise.

When I went on oxygen and the bruising purple spots disappeared and haven't re-ocurred. I also began a regiment of vitamins. I don't believe these spots were a result of medicines as I am on none save the asthma inhalers I have used for years.

I hope this helps my friend,

Jack
