    She does not have CFS or FM, but she is bruising just by touching something a little too hard.

    I think she may be difficient on some vitamin, but I can't remember which one...Vitamin K maybe?

    Also, what is a good home rememdy for getting rid of them quickly?

    Thanks, everyone, for your help!

    God Bless.

    It can be caused by a Vitamin K deficiency but I believe it can also be caused by low platelets. If it keeps up she should see her doc and have her blood panels run.

    ...if it continues, she should have platelets checked.

    I get the brusing also but I think it is from my liver

    problems.(??) Older people seem to have this a great deal

    of times as did my Father who lived to be 87. Don't think

    there is alot to worry about but I've have your friend

    mention it to a Doc at some point.
