Hi. Like your 'name'. Good attitude. Are you taking Prednisone? I just recently found out, (I think from this site), that that is why I bruise easily. I used to sit at an assembly line and braced by legs up under it. My husband thought someone was beating me. I didn't even feel it while working till after I was off the job for a couple weeks and then came back. Ouch. Even more reason I don't mind wearing long sleeves. I'm down to 2 1/2 mg. but I still bruise occasionally.

Sharlene is right, if your taking Prednisone it will cause bruising. I get bruises all the time and I know I've hadn't hit that area....it will also cause thinner skin. You might want to talk to your doctor about this. Wish you the best.

I think Prednisone is the biggest offender when it comes to bruises especially if you are on high doses. I remember how big they would get and seemed like they took forever to go away and you go through all the crazy shades of bruising. Hope it gets better.

I never thought about a medicine for the bruising, I just kind of expect them, and try not to get surprised when they show up even in inopportune places. Hang in there. Blame it on the Prednisone.
