Points -  Ask the Doctor

Q: I am a 52-year-old woman and for the past three years I have had a problem with my skin tearing and bleeding easily, particularly on my hands. If I bump my hands when I'm doing something, I dark red splotches. I'm not on blood thinners or steroids, nor am I a diabetic. My doctor has told me it is part of the aging process. It is so ugly and I am concerned that my body is lacking something important. I'm presently taking vitamin C, horsetail and lethicin.

A: I would guess that you have a "Spleen or Kidney deficiency," but I would need to give you a more detailed examination in person. I recommend that you see a practitioner. He or she will ask you questions about your general health (Are you prone to infection? Weakened immunity? Are you easily fatigued?); about your medical history; and about your menses and/or menopause. You can also expect a practitioner to examine your tongue and take your pulses.
