Bateman's Purpura - Symptom, Causes & Treatment

Bateman's purpura refers to flat, irregular, purple lesions that appear on your skin as you get older. Bateman's purpura (BP) is a bruised lesion that is commonly seen on the sun-exposed extensor surfaces of forearms and hands in elderly individuals. The skin appears thin and wrinkly, almost flimsy looking. They are common, but not dangerous.

Treatment of Bateman's Purpura

Vitamin K cream applied to the skin daily has been shown to improve this condition.

Daily application of alpha hydroxyacid lotions to the skin have been shown to increase skin thickness up to 15% in patients with sun damaged thin skin. This occurs through the stimulation of collagen production, the skins natural support protein.
