:( My husband has had a purple patch of skin appear on his lower back, right in the small of his back over his spine. It does not itch or hurt. It is about 4 inches long in an arrow shape pointing up. It looks like a fresh bruise, but is not changing in color ... maybe fading a little but not like a bruise would. I am very concerned, as all I have found on purple rash is meningitis related illnesses, but all of the pictures I have seen of those rashes are little spots all over, and his is one big patch of skin that is purple. I think it is strange that it goes right up his spine, like that. He went to the doctor, they said it looks like a bruise. They measured it and told him to come back on tuesday. No blood test :eek: , just measured it.:confused: He was really ill a few days before I noticed it on his back. seemed like food poisoning or a 24 hour flu. He has had some fatigue, before and since, as well. Has anyone heard of anything simular?
