Re: Strange skin bleeding
Normal aging can cause mild skin fragility but so can liver problems, diabetes, poor diet or malabsorption (lack of vitamin K), arteriosclerosis, as a side effect of medications (for ex: prednisone or long term antibiotics) or supplements (ex: fish oil), there are many possible reasons . . .
Here's a Medline Plus article on the different health issues that can result in "tissue paper" skin and easy bruising or bleeding. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/004014.htm
