A few months ago my thighs itched really bad and i scratched them like crazy and the next day I had extremely dark bruises all over. I went to a doctor and they ran a blood test and it came back normal. The itching and bruising still continues but it's worse. It's on my arms, thighs, shins, chest, neck, and head! I look like I have been physically abused! I'm going to go to a doctor again, I just wanted to see if anyone else has had anything similar to this and can tell me what happened with them. I am a female and will be 21 in June. I'm not pregnant. I workout 5 times a week, eat healthy, and in general am a very happy person.

On doing some research it seems like some medication can cause this. I am on citalopram and that is one of the ones that can cause this symptom.
