First I would like to thank all of our customers for their support and patronage. Our sales have been better than expected over the last few months and due to the popularity of our large size bruise guards we are temporally out of larges. Our manufacture is running a little behind on production but we are working as hard as we can to get large size dermasleeves bruise guards back in stock as soon as possible. Not only do we have a big shipment of larges on the way but we are also adding two new sizes to our store. Many of you have let us know that the small is a little too big or the large is not quite big enough, so very soon we will have a extra small and a extra large size dermasleeves bruise guard. We hope that this will let you get the perfect fitting bruise guards so you can quit worrying about your arms and start enjoying your life again. We hope to have both new sizes and a good supply of large bruiseguards in stock again by the end of August at the latest.

Below is a great article I recentlly found on Medicinenet.com about the causes of easy bruising it is very detailed and well worth the read if you are interested in why you bruise easy and the medical conditions that can cause easy bruising. The page also has a symptom checker and links to other articles about the medical cause of easy bruising.
Easy Bruising Symptoms
By WILLIAM C. SHIEL JR., MD
“A bruise is a traumatic injury of the soft tissues that results in breakage of the local capillaries and leakage of red blood cells. In the skin, bruising can be seen as a reddish-purple discoloration that does not blanch when pressed upon. A bruise can sometimes be associated with a temporary raised area in the skin. When a bruise fades, it becomes green and brown as the body metabolizes the blood cells and bilirubin pigment in the skin. A bruise is best treated with local application of a cold pack immediately after injury.”
Many people are living with medical conditions such as diabetes, psoriasis, eczema, cellulitis, or that have to take blood thinners or have thin skin from steroid use or too much exposure to the sun. One of the problems that people with these conditions and that take these types of medications have is easy bruising and tearing of the skin. If you have any of these conditions especially diabetes you are at a much higher risk of picking up a serious infection from even the smallest scratch. Why is easy bruising so common in older adults? Some people especially women are more prone to bruising than are others. As you get older, several factors can contribute to easy bruising, including:
Aging capillaries: As we age, the fatty tissues supporting the blood vessels weaken, and capillary walls become more fragile and prone to rupture. The weaker capillary walls make it a lot easier to bruise. The reduction in fat under the skin make people much more subject to getting bad cuts and skin tears from the smallest nick.
Thinning skin: With age, your skin becomes thinner and loses some of the protective fatty layer that helps cushion your blood vessels from injury. While we are all subject t o this aging effect it tends to be more pronounced in older women
Sunlight Exposure: . Excessive exposure to the sun accelerates thinning of the skin by breaking down the collagen in the skin. UVA radiation, while also damaging the epidermis, penetrates deeper into the skin to the level of the dermis. UVA not only harms epidermal cells, it also damages collagen and elastin, which make up the structure of the dermis and keep the skin resilient. Blood vessels can also be harmed by this type of radiation.
Steroid Use: Cortisone steroids can cause of thinning of the skin (skin atrophy). This is a known possible side effect of long term steroid use. Many Strong topical corticosteroids can cause skin atrophy if applied too frequently and for a prolonged time without a break. Although early skin thinning can disappear if the topical corticosteroid is discontinued, prolonged use can cause permanent stretch marks and a loss of fatty tissues supporting the skin.
Blood-thinning drugs: Asprin and Warfarin (Coumadin) or medications such as Plavix reduce your blood’s ability to clot. The result of this is bleeding from capillary damage might take longer than usual to quit this allows blood to leak out of the capillaries and can cause a bruise. Taking these type of medications can also increase the risk of infections from of getting cut since the cuts take much longer to close up and heal.
Peoples arms are the easiest place to bruise or cut yourself while working around the house or in the yard. You can be careful and try to remove any sharp or bruise causing objects from your daily routine. Also wearing a protective device like Dermasleeves Bruise Guards will protect you from all but the hardest bruise causing impacts and cut causing sharp edges.
