You are asking two different questions. Aspirin can cause bleeding but it is unclear what you mean by "every little scratch". If you are on aspirin every other day, it is possible that your doctor suspected "sensitivity" to aspirin. Shortness of breath on walking is abnormal and needs to be investigated further. Please see your cardiologist or surgeon for evaluation. It is important. Good luck.
