    bruises under arms

    I have PA, and iron defiency anemia, and I have noticed that I bruise easily. I expect that honestly, but right above my arm pits I not small bruises there all the time. Clusters of bruises. Now I have not injured myself in anyway, so where are those bruises coming from???

    Are they actually bruises or is the skin turning brown? I am assuming that you are caucasian. But, if it is simple bruising it is weak capillaries that are seeping. This clears up when your levels of iron and b-12 are stable. If the skin is turning brown, you might need to go see your doctor and show him. I have read some place that when the skin begins to look tan in places where you do not normally get sunlight, that this can indicate a cancerous process. Now don't panic because there is no way I can possibly know if this applies to you and that is why I am saying to check with your doctor.

    I get bruises there too. I have no idea why I get them. I always tell my friends I lead a secret night life because I wake up with bruises in the weirdest places.
