Purpora of arms: It is very common when you are on a blood thinner like warfarin to have purplish or bluish discolorations in the arms, and occasionally on your face. These discolorations may go away or they may persist. They are completely benign. Make sure you are not on other types of blood thinners, like aspirin or Plavix (clopidogrel) that can cause them. As always, discuss with your health care provider.
