    Default Black and Blue marks - associated with lupus?

    I have had a rash for 17 months and this past summer I noticed that above the rash I have four black and blue marks that are about the size of nickels. Is this a symptom of lupus also? Thanks so much for answering my question!

    Hi Wendy,

    Black and blue like bruises? If so I never had that with my rashes however I have other problems as well (neurological) so I tend to fall a lot and be very clumsy so I am pretty much covered with bruises all the time.

    Hopefully someone smarter than me will come along and be able to answer your question

    I don't think that they are black and blue marks, not sure what they are but they have been there for 5 months.

    That's when you ask the doctor. I don't know about everyone else, but I bruise very easily. Maybe someone else has some answers.

    I suddenly developed strange bruises on my left shin - I mean weird! Like one was a big square over the shin which after trwo weeks is kind of more rashy than black and blue. I have several other slightly larger than quarter sized bruised on the same leg. One day I had this unbelievable pain in that leg and then a while later the bruises showed up. Not a clue.

    how about an update, did you ask a doctor about the marks? What did she/he say?
