Avatar n tn I have had this problem since my early 20's. Some doctors have told me it's from early sun damage, others have said it's a form of roscazea. I have had it treated with a with a process where apin was placed into the vein, and also with lazers-which is very exspensive. I work with the public,and very concerned about my appearnce. Recently, I've been using a cover-up called Dermablend. Is there any thing I could use or do to get rid of these? I heard vitamin K cream might help.

The spots could also be petechiae, which are pinpoint-sized red dots under the surface of the skin. They can result from autoimmune disorders, such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, bone marrow disorders such as leukemia, inflammation of the veins, as a side effect of certain medications.

Avatar m tn Vitamin K is an essential vitamin but too much can be toxic to the liver. Vitamin K2 has shown more benefits to the liver, particularly in the area of fibrosis, also known as MK7, you can read more about it on the life extention web site.

Avatar f tn How do you feel about the vitamin K shot? Are you going to give it to your new born?
Avatar f tn I think those who are opposed to a vitamin K shot for baby should do more research. Vitamin K can prevent a bleeding disorder, not blood clotting. Vitamin K aids in the ability of blood to clot, which is why it is given to newborns as a preventative measure. A lactation consultant friend sent me a link to an article, which includes statistics, about this very debate. http://evidencebasedbirth.

The other possibility is that you have deficiency of vitamin B12, or vitamin K or even fragile small veins which break on and off. Take some multivitamin supplements and wear loose clothes and see if it helps. If it does not help, please re-consult your doctor to rule out these possibilities. Take care!
Avatar m tn Vitamin K administration to improve the coagulopathy of patients with liver disease is common and often administered in response to an elevated INR. This is the largest retrospective review to date evaluating the effect of vitamin K on the INR of patients with liver disease. While a statistically significant decrease in INR of 0.08 was found, it is unclear if such a difference from vitamin K would be clinically significant.
Avatar f tn There may be a problem with fragility of the blood vessels, or a simple vitamin-K deficiency. Vitamin K is necessary to clot the blood. Sometimes people on odd diets have this deficiency. But don't take any without consulting your doctor. First of all - cheer up. This isn't as serious as it sounds. The problem is to get your physician to pay attention to you. It's hard. They don't pay attention to adults on many occasions.
Avatar f tn The other possible reasons are low platelet count, clotting disorders, fragile spider veins, deep vein thrombus, deficiency of Vitamin B12, folic acid, or Vit K, a liver disease or certain cancers.

Please discuss this with your doctor and get yourself investigated accordingly. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar n tn being on coumadin you shouldn't drink any alcohol and the most I would say is no more than 2 glasses of wine. I take 1 tablespoon of Carlson lemon flavor fish oil in the AM, 1 teaspoon in the afternoon and 1 tablespoon in the evening. Coumadin is one of the all-time worst "hangovers" from the "heyday" of patent medications: No matter how many alternatives there are for it, it just won't go away.
