The best thing to do is make an appointment to see a doctor OR join HealthTap and show pictures to one of our doctors. Best wishes. ...Read more

Yes: That is a common effect of low dose Aspirin due to the inhibition of blood platelets. If your hypertension is well controlled it can still happen but is more likely if not controlled. As one gets older the skin gets thinner and capillaries get more fragile and tear easier which makes these bruises appear more often. ...Read more
