    It's really weird; lately i've been finding random bruises on my skin i have one on my upper inner thigh and another thats parallel on my calf it looks like a bruise, kinda greenish-bluish-purplish, but it doesn't hurt at all. Any ideas what this could be? Oh and btw my mom gets bruises on her arms similar to these and her doctor said it was from red meat. Could it be that?

    My sister and I would get them a lot. I noticed mine were from low iron. Once I started eating more iron-rich foods I got less bruises.

    It could be something else entirely. Maybe look into nutrients to strengthen your veins and arteries. I don't recall what that would be off the top of my head, but look into it. You may have week blood vessels.

    My shins are always turning green from whacking them into various pieces of equipment at the Y. Sure it's not caused from some new exercise where you're whacking yourself with dumbbells or machines?

    Vitamin K is really important in clotting, and I know I get more random bruises when I haven't been eating as many dark leafy greens. Last time I looked, most vitamin pills didn't have vit. K.
