I have lots of bruising on the front & out side of my leg. I do take 1 baby aspirin a day & inhaled steroids. What is causing this. Sore in spots.

Purpura: Easy bruising can have many causes. One of the more common causes is minor trauma--hands, forearms, legs--in people on blood thinners. Something that accelerates bruising is the use of either topical or systemic steroids. I think your Aspirin and inhaled steroids are causing/worsening the problem. Do not stop them, but talk to your doctor for options. ...Read more

I had a baby 6 months ago. About 1 1/2 2months ago I noticed some blue spots behind my knee undernieth where it creases. Should I be concerned?

Varicose Veins: Those blue spots are likely varicosities (varicose veins) that remained after the pregnancy. A big uterus with a baby sometimes compresses on your vena cava and prevents blood from flowing up and out of your legs and so it leads to bulging vessels, unfortunately. Nothing to worry about unless these vessels harden, get red, or get painful. ...Read more

It will be very slow. ...Read more
