I have 15 bruises on my legs, they just appeared out of nowhere and they look horrible.

they are yellow. What could this be? I am anemic, could that have anything to do with it?

and yes i know, this should be in health but nobody ever answers there

  • are you taking iron pills? be sure you arent skipping any. I would look up these symptoms on webmd and see if its serious. I wouldnt play with that.

  • thanks ladies, my doctor gave me iron pills after having my DD, but they only gave me enough for 1 month and said that my anemia would go away. Is that possible?

  • IT is... my sister had to have an emergency c-section with my nephew and she wound up losing alot of blood. She was anemic for quite sometime, I want to say 4 or 5 months. Try adding more iron to your diet.. A lot of Kelloggs cereals are iron fortified and some milks are.

    I would contact your dr about getting more iron.
