What was your platelet count? Sometimes an allergic reaction can temporarily lower your platelets, leaving you susceptible to peteichaie and bad bruising. I have ITP, which is an autoimmune disorder that causes my body to produce antibodies to my platelets and tags them for destruction. I go in and out of remission, and I try to find a cause for the trigger that causes my antibodies to start destroying my platelets. When my platelets are low, I get bruises very easy plus nosebleeds and headaches and I have serious fatigue and muscle and joint pain. They usually treat me with a combo of Prednisone and Immune Gammaglobulin (IVIG). It's annoying, but I still live a very normal active life.
If your platelet count was normal, I would continue to follow it, but I wouldn't be overly concerned, but I would try to figure out what triggers the allergic reaction and fix it.
