Jennifer I would think oils might help. But bruising and bleeding sounds serious. What does your skin specialist say?

Sorry to hear Jennifer. My skin was very thin and when I stopped the cortisone I tried to spend as much time as I could in the sun. It did help. I also used vitamin D and E cream a lot xx

Jennifer, have you tried spray on bandaid. Here in the UK we normally call bandaids, sticking plasters. I googled spray on plasters and found Boots the chemist's sells it. Boots are the UK equivalent to Walgreens, so maybe try there. The other thing that came to mind was, when he was a kid, one of my brothers couldn't tolerate plasters so my folks would just use a wound dressing held by surgical tape.

I have had to have a liver transplant from using biologics n I want to make people more aware of the side effects. Plus maske sure you get regular blood checks always.
