My son was diagnosed with Celiac Disease at around 3 years old, and a few months later, was diagnosed with Lymphocytic Colitis. His colitis has been in remission for a few years now, and his diet is going well. My worry is his constant bruising. I get scared to take him to the doctor because I don't want them to think he is abused, and when I have brought this up to his pediatricians, they say that children bruise.The bruises are all different colors, which from what I understand means they have happened at different times. He is rather clumsy, but I just gave him a bath and counted upwards of 20 bruises. He has two older brothers and they don't get bruises like he does. He has had times when he will get nosebleeds all of a sudden, but it's not frequent, maybe five times last year, but it is a lot of blood. Since he has an autoimmune disorder already, could this mean he has something else wrong? Or am I just being paranoid? I could really use some advice as to what to do, should I take him to the doctor or not? I just don't know. I appreciate any helpReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
