Not sure, guess it depends on what is bleeding. Just play things by ear, and don't go looking for a problem, if maybe nothing serious exists. Wait till something tells you there is.

I never bruised (black & blue). Recently I get a small spot that looks like red blood under the skin. They will disappear in a few days. It looks strange, being so small and red. They can be as small as a freckle. I'm a bit concerned, since they only started showing a yr ago, but I noticed my skin seems to be getting thinner, reminding me of my grandmothers when she was old. I'm assuming, might just be from aging, and will keep and eye on them. Just had a bigger one, 3/4 x 1/2" That has been the biggest, but this one I knew that I scraped the skin. Usually I don't realize it, and see the spot.

I'll keep it in mind, and see if I hear anything about them. No need to worry if it just the normal progression with age.
