My sister is on cardio-aspirin for many years. She developes red spots under the skin. It looks like blood under the skin which later becomes brown looking like freckles and does not go away. Somebody told her the aspirin is thinning her blood too much and she should stop the aspirin for a while.
Let us hear your comments please.
Thank you,

Mike, the easiest way to find out would be to have blood taken at the laboratory for a clotting profile. It will tell her if she is taking too much aspirin or not. Good luck.
