Bleeding into skin: Systemic vasculitis can affect the small blood vessels in the skin causing bleeding into the skin. This can take on many forms depending on the amount of bleeding into the skin. Anywhere from pinpoint bleeding to large bruised areas. Vasculitis is a serious illness and needs to be evaluated and the cause determined if possible.
