Bruises

Bruises

I have bruises from my arms to my back and I itch so bad anyone know ??

I have lots of bruises too. I have no idea where they come from. They last a really long time too. It looks like I am really clumsy or being beaten. LOL I have also experienced the itching. I thought it was the Plaquenil the first time because I had just started taking it. I stopped taking it but the itching lasted for several more days. I had to take Claritin for a while until it was gone. It is just another one of the wonderful gifts of Lupus.

I always get bruises that I can't explain and then they don't ever leave! I have had a bruise on my knee for about 5 months. It faded but the outline is still there. I occasionally itch. Mainly my arms or my stomach. Nothing too unusual that I've noticed though.

Bruises is common to Lupus. I have notice some Lupies do itch, but I don't. Have you discussed it with your doctor?

I am on Medrol and bruise easily. The bruises itch for some reason until the bleeding stops.
