It's definitely possible. I have bruised easily (inherited skin type), but I do think salicylates can exacerbate if one is more prone.

Interestingly, I can touch my arm into something...a bruise. I fell on the stairs and popped my shoulder out and then it went back in itself all in the same motion...not one bruise...

Go figure.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!
