    Hi,
    I have noticed lately that I have more skin problems than I used to. I have a recurring scalp infection that the doctor just tells me is blocked pores. Also, I bruise extremely easily and small cuts seem to take FOREVER to heal and scar badly. Yes, I do take vitamins.
    Anyone else have this? Any advice.
    Thanks,
    Kristi

    Yes, I do bruise easily. I think sometimes it may be from the advil, which is also a blood thinner. Yet, I have always bled easily my whole life. I have a chronic dermatitis on my hands that never completely heals. Yet, my dr tells me its not from the automimmune disorder, which I believe cfs is.

    I am the same way....you just touch me, & I have a bruise. Sometimes I wake up & have them on my arm, & I don't even remember doing anything to cause it. I have no idea why this happens.

    I also bruise very easily and have since childhood, of course I've also had fibro since childhood! We could all get together and look like a convention of punching bags. LOL!

    Gentle hugs,

    I always bruise easily. My mom used to call them "devil's kisses". It takes hardly anything for me to get a big nasty bruise, and they take forever to go away.

    I've always kind of been easy to bruise, but since I've gotten FM it's worse than ever! I also scar very easily. My husband tells me that I can get black & blue from running into a cotton ball!!

    Gentle HUGS - Lex
