I have been taking warfarin for many years. It seems to agree with me and my INR is normal most of the time but my question is "How do control my skin from turning purple with the slightest movements. I used to just bruise but I now have massive dark purple bruise looking patches under my skin. I have to wear long sleeve shirts and stay out of the sun due to pre-cancer skin conditions. Is there anything I can do or use to help this problem. Thank you.
