Thin skin, burst blood vessels - is this common for ederly?
I have a relative who recently was drying off after taking a shower and as that person rubbed the towel across their ankle a blood vessel ruptured and started squirting blood. Luckily another family member was there to help that person. My relative is not taking any thing that would thin the blood. Took over an hour to get the bleeding stopped. Is having thin skin and rupturing blood vessels a common occurence for people 60 and older?
