I have always grown up being one of those kids likely to walk around bruised. Thought this would be different now that I'm 34 with kids of my own.
I currently have 6 bruises on my thigh areas only that range from the size of a golf ball, to the size of approx 15cm long. I do suffer from hives and food allergies, include lactose intolerance. I have been to two different doctors. One sent me for blood tests and nothing showed up. Thought this was OK, but I keep getting them. It looks like I've been severely mawled by something. The other doctor did not run any tests, just listened to me describe my issues with my hives, severe itching, and problems with my bowels (foods really can react badly), and said that this is all it is likely to be??????

Google isn't always a good thing - after some of the things I have read today about bruising - my concern is rising!!!

IS there anyone else out there that gets bruises the size of footballs?? Also occurs if I have scratched in a particular area for a period of time.
