You might be a klutz…or one of these surprising factors could be to blame.
Expect to see purple when you hit your leg on a table or wall locker elbow accidentally while changing in the gym. But the bruises coming from the slightest touch or black and blue mystery that come with zero explanation can be frightening, not to mention unsightly. Do not panic and one of these factors is likely to blame.
It has thin skin
Bruises occur when blood vessels under the skin tear after being hit and then bleed under the skin. If your skin has lost collagen due to aging effects, it is more susceptible to injury, says Holly Phillips, MD, a specialist in women’s health in the city of New York and medical contributor for CBS News.
You have accumulated sun damage
Skin that has been damaged by UV rays loses its flexibility and resilience, and that can lead to easier or significant bruising, says Marc Leavey, MD, a primary care physician at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore.
You are taking certain meds
Aspirin, steroids and anticoagulants can all put the brakes on blood clotting, says Phillips. So when you hit the knee on the bedpost, he is bleeding under the skin there for a longer period of time than normal.
Even if you do not raise much or feeling at the time, lifting can cause microscopic tears in the muscle fibers that appear as bruises, Leavey said.
Happens in your family
Thank you very much, Mom and Dad. This is the big factor as to whether or not you embarrassed easily-if your mom gets black and blue, for no apparent reason at all, you probably will too, says Phillips.
You Super Pale
Really pale skin does not mean that you are more prone to bruising, only that any slight discoloration you get is more visible than it is in people with darker skin tones, says Leavey.
You have an underlying disease
It is very rare, but sometimes a tendency to turn purple may be a sign of a bleeding disorder or blood leukemia, says Phillips, but most likely it would have other strange symptoms. If it used to take a lot for you to score a black and blue spot, but now come easily, and can not be explained away with any of these other factors, raise the possibility with your doctor.
