Hello doctor,

I have an issue with my skin. It has changed color, maybe a bruise or something even though it is not itchy or painful.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Yes, it appears to be a bruise only (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Commonly this occurs due to trauma or injury noticed or unnoticed. So do you remember any history of injury while walking, playing, driving, etc.? Is there any possibility of injury during sleep? If yes then it is fine and it will resolve in a week or two.

Is it just a single bruise or multiple over the body? You should try to search at other sites as well. If multiple or there is no clear-cut history or possibility of injury, then we need to rule low platelet count as a cause for the bruise. So, you should get platelet count, and PT INR test done in order to rule out clotting problem.

Hope this helps you and get back if you have any doubts.
