Bruising: Some docs believe that the pulp of citrus will reduce bruising. I doubt it. Some people-esp. Women-bruise easily from minor insults. This is, fortunately, only skin deep. The dark purple are patent veins perhaps more superficial due to the slight swelling of the bruise. This does not raise any red flags. It is simply a personal peculiarity that is not uncommon. ...Read more

Platelets help the blood clot. A person with purpura may have normal platelet counts (nonthrombocytopenic purpuras) or low platelet counts (thrombocytopenic purpuras). See your doctor. ...Read more
