I have a purple looking rash on my upper arms. It doesn't itch or hurt. There is no discomfort to it at all. but it is very embraressing and a lot of people notice it. doctors have even notice it but either they don't know what it is or think I do. It looks like I am really cold, but usually am not. It is only on my arms. I do have VERY sentitive skin and a lot of allergies. along with I am not in the best of health. Nothing serious, but alot of little things. I just want to know what it is and how to get rid of it. I have had it for a couple of years and it is slowly getting darker purple and larger. It has tiny veins in it, but mostly it looks like a rash. Not raised or bumpy.

  • I have the same discoloration- it gets worse when I am cold. I also bleed easily. Doctors comment on it but don't seem concerned. It is embarrassing and concerning. I have no answer though.
