Deep Purple Bruise White Spots
I have a bruise like spot on my calf that I saw a week ago. It's purple with white spots, it doesn't hurt, it isn't raised. Is it just a bruise?
Ecchymosis: A capillary or tiny vein probably spontaneously burst leaking a small amount of blood under the skin. As this blood collection slowly breaks down, it leaves these various colors which take days to clear. This is a painless, no serious process. However if multiple episodes occur in scattered locations blood counts and coagulation tests are recommended. Aspirin increases the fragility of blood vessel ...Read more
Bruise Or Contusion (Definition)
Bruises, or ecchymoses, are discolorations and tenderness of the skin or mucous membranes due to the leakage of blood from an injured blood vessel into the surrounding tissues. A serious disease called pupura presents as a cluster of small bruises called petachia. Petachia often appears as many tiny red dots clustered together, and could indicate a problem. ...Read more
Sore, purple bruised big toe to the bottom/side. Now white spots appeared in the centre. Really painful & can't walk properly. Do exercise regularly.?
Down under the toe.: It sounds as though you've managed to injure the toe. Bruising is a sign of underlying tissue damage and steps should be taken to minimize further damage. Exercising should be eliminated until the effects of the injury are under control. Ice compression, elevation and rest are the mainstays of treatment. To remove all doubt, have the toe x-rayed and examined to assess the degree of injury. ...Read more

If you think the bruise is originating from a deeper structure such as a lumpy place within muscle, and it persists, get checked out. ...Read more

Could low dose asa therapy cause you to bruise more easily and to develop purple spots on skin? I am also on HRT and lotrel (amlodipine and benazepril) for hypertension.
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
