Healing problems?

Okay, so here's a little idea...

Grade 8 - I got bitten 3 or 4 times around the same area on my hip by a bull ant... it took 3 years before the mark disappeared.

Grade 9 - I got around 4 bruises in a line running down my spine from sitting on a chair (you cannot imagine how much I dislike that chair)... 2 bruises remain. I am 19... so those bruises/dark marks have been there for 5+ years, wow?

Now a bit more up to date info...

2006 - Mid November I received 2 mosquitoe bites and the mark is still there... today is the 12th of Feb 2007! That is not normal right?

These are only a few occasions that I can remember that stand out... what is wrong with me? Is there something I can take that *will* work to help the healing process? I do take supplements like zinc, vit c, fish oil, vit b, etc.
