A strange symptom on the skin called a sign of vitamin B12 deficiency

What can signal a problem

Vitamin B12 is involved in many important bodily functions. It is needed for the formation of healthy red blood cells, the functioning of the central nervous system (CNS), and the normal functioning of the brain. A deficiency of this water-soluble substance can be indicated by a symptom that manifests itself on the skin, said experts at the Cleveland Clinic.

According to American experts, we are talking about bruises that appear on the body for no reason. Also, such a symptom can signal a lack of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and vitamin K, doctors shared the details.

Doctors urged to see a doctor if there are no improvements a week after the appearance of a bruise, if the bruise reappears in the same place, and also if it is too large and unprovoked.
