Hi,

My friend has had a itchy rash on his foot for a while, that has just started to turn a bit red and look like a bruise. He has now also got what looks like a bruise on his shoulder that hurts a bit, and a couple on his arms. He hasnt bumped himself so he doesnt know what has caused these bruise like red patchs.
Anybody got any idea as to what it can be?
P.s He isnt registered with a doctor, and being a bloke he doesnt want to go to the doctor or register because he's lazy!!

Thanks!

  • thats odd, because i also have the same thing but they're deffinately bruises, purle and yellow bruises that are getting bigger as time passes it ben about two months.i want it to go away because i work in hospitality and if i bend down to pick something up you can see them on the back of my neck and they look like i'm being abused.the ones on my back almost looke liike hand prints and i've been really tired, even on my days off work. i'm only 19 and am a little scared i might have some sort of cancer because i'm so tired. i've also been pretty aggressive and havn't been eating or sleeping much.hoipe someone can help with any suggestions because all my doctors are stumped.

Not to scare you, but my Godmother's daughter had the same symptoms at age 19 and she did end up having leukemia. Take care of yourself!!!
