Rashes and spots on your skin

Hemorrhage is not only blood flowing through wounds, your mouth or feces. There are other forms of hemorrhage, as in hemorrhagic symptoms in your skin. They are very common in patients with leukemia, and often the first manifestation of clotting problems in these patients, both men and women.
