"My husband has taken coumadin for years. As a result, he has very thin skin with red blothcs, which tears off with the least little bang. This leaves it open and bleeding, sometimes for days. I wonder if anyone has found anything that helps heal these wounds other than exposure to sun and air?"

Problem with kidney's.
excessive blood lost with clots from monthly cycle. lasting more than 10 days
My blood pressure is still up. I started taking 2 losartan a day a little over a week ago. Was not having symptoms as bad when taking only 1. Blood pressure seems to come down some with the clonidine. I think the extra losartan has triggered a reaction.
