ok so I have a crazy question.  I am on entocort, asacol and humira (just started humira) , and i noticed on just one leg behind my knee i get these round bruises and then on both lets behind knee and on calf i have begun to get spider veins.  has anyone else experienced this???.. now my concern is im only 23 so this seems odd for me to already be getting these..
any advise??

Hello there,

I do not have an answer but I sure understand your concern.  I am sure someone will be along that has some experience otherwise please do ask your physician.

Take care and keep posting.

As long as you haven't recently started sleepwalking backwards into knee-level objects, it'd probably be a good idea to tell your doc. The spider veins might just be "old age," (yes, it happens even to 23-year-olds!) but any new kind of bruising may warrant at least a simple blood test, especially if you've recently started a new drug like Humira.
